    2013 yamaha vxs...DUAL EXHAUST FINISHED....

    man oh man what a job...whats that old joke? something about...it took 2 monkeys,a ball bat and a qualude to get this job done...haaaa...after getting the exhaust tip i was finally able to get to work on this...i keep alot of junk behind my barn because ya never know when it will come in handy...in my pile was an old aluminum stop sign pole that i used...after alot of cuts with skill saw and chop saw and grinder work i then hot glued each lil piece together till i got the whole exhaust contraption in one piece...very carefully fit it in and checked for any mistakes and made sure everything fit good...in pic number 3 is a little deflector to help deflect some of the exhaust over to the other outlet as my Y was not a perfectly true Y....i was aiming for equal exhaust output from both sides...it was blind luck that it worked out perfectly. the exhaust hose i used is an actual wet exhaust reinforced marine hose capable of taking the heat...a little notch cut out of waterbox outlet made this thing go back in much easier and hose coupler still covered it enough so it wouldnt leak...after being satisfied that everything fit like a glove and that my rear storage bucket could still be used...i then took all the parts n pieces to THE WITCH DOCTOR...GEORGE...my welder buddy who is jamaican...haaa...he used to weld at a few shipyards and can fab and weld anything...took him 2 hours with me helping and holding parts in position to get them tacked....got back home and another 2 hours later .....after coming up with a few words that would make a sailor blush....i got it hooked up,cranked up and water on...no leaks at all,everything is rock solid,doesnt rub anywhere,exhaust is equal on each side and has a nice low rumble...not loud,just a low and very throaty rumble...this by far has been the most difficult mod ive ever done on any ski ive ever owned....but im already wondering how the riva waterbox would sound or take the stock one back out and cut n gut it...for now im very pleased...heres a short video but this doesnt do it any justice at all...when i get it out on the water i will have wife take a video of a wot pass...thanks JERRY for your advice and pointers...
