    Polaris SLT 700 water leak.

    Already ordered the parts but, quick question anyway. If the exhaust manifold gaskets leak water out, can they also leak water in? As in, into the cylinder and maybe make it miss out and run very rough at idle and mid throttle? It ran like this for maybe 5 minutes before I pulled the seat to peak in. Saw ALOT of water and started looking for the leak. Exhaust manifold leaking water. Parked it right away.

    The rough running was likely because of built up exhaust fumes in the engine compartment displacing air and choking the engine out. At speed at is somewhat forced into the engine compartment and may not be so noticeable......

    I would think the pressure from the exhaust would keep water out of the cylinders.
