    I have this constant water leak on my FZR

    I had 5+ gal of water in my hull......all I could find is this wrong? will a boot missing on plastic nut where cable goes through cause water intrusion into hull THANKS.



    The boot I'm talking about goes over the cable and plastic nut on backside of ski not the inside but outside

    Maybe they thought you new everything so no need to answer. You seem to know ever so much on the kawasaki forums lmfao

    really easy to find out.... just fill the ski up with a little water while tilted back if it leaks than there is your problem.

    the cable housing is crimped into the thru hull fitting, so i dont see how it would let water into the hull unless the streering cable housing is cracked, i'm sure its letting water into the inner lining, which in time is going to start rusing and make the cable stiff, i really don't think thats where the amount of water you had is comming from

    That boot is only to keep debris out of the cable end area, the cable internal seal is up in there farther. Have had a few boats with this boot torn and no trouble.

    Replace the boot then put the ski back in the water and see if it still leaks. That should answer your question. Let us know what you find out.
