    what ever happen to Gibson exhaust for our skis

    i know in 2008 when they came out..they were popular.ive only been back on the forums the couple of months after a few year absents. I see jerry doesnt carry them in his store anymore...ive done a search not much since 2008-10..heard some had weld problems..just wondering if they ever corrected them? they ever fix the fitment issue with the rxp? I love they way they sounded.
    thank

    They sunk nearly every ski they were installed in.

    Slasher more info would be great and pictures as i remember the talk about these some said they were junk others loved them i was back then a smart shoper and did reserch myself and got the newer one i remember it was replaced free of charge from the older one bungee threds were not the same and welds thats why i also got a full kit of water pump rule 500 gph with a switch etc... as our skies are worth thousands of dollars and especially after expensive mods its extra insurance.

    The welds break and basically your exhaust outlet will be a giant water inlet. If you had 4 bilge pumps your ski would still sink if that 2.75" exhaust opening is opened up. The Gibson did have a really nice sound to it. It mellowed out the exhaust nicely. But for me in freshwater it only lasted about 6 months I can't imagine it lasting long at all in salt water

    You should try this exhaust 100% stainless steel no welding issues, 3 years since installed in my ski. The sound is like a Yamaha R1 motorcycle.
