    Pull it out and fix it correctly. Probably a defect from the factory. Note the tow piston rings that connect the bottom part of the pipe together under the coupler. You have to use masking tape to hold them in place for install. It will burn away over time and free up the piston rings.

    Make sure you purchase a new exhaust gasket. Don't cheap out like I did and have to do it twice. Once is once too many. It is a PITA.

    Just a shot in the dark - Did you pull the header drain hose off of the back of the motor and put the open end down flat in the hull over the winter? If not, maybe the water froze and popped the studs. I have an 06 also and have had no problem, knock on wood.

    Header Drain Hose?

    Nope.

    Think that's the culprit? The blue silicon coupler failed over the weekend. Something bad is going on......ski runs 65 all day long.

    I have the valve block offs installed. Think the exhaust got to hot?

    You need to check the rings that seal the connection under the silicone coupler. It sounds like they are leaking. Did you compress them during installation? Like 785xp said, you need to use masking tape to hold them in the compressed position during assembly. I am pretty sure this is your problem. I believe that the silicone coupling only seals the water exiting through the perimeter of the exhaust tip. The rings keep the hot exhaust gas that exist from the center of the tip from coming into contact with the silicone coupling. Remove the primary water box and check it out. Do not worry, easy fix.

    That was my problem! I bent one of the rings re-assembling after the first problem.

    Thanks everyone!
