Shorty Waterbox Install
Im having trouble with the shorty wb it just will not go in. I have untouched j-pipe, shorty w.b., and rude tip. What is the process of doing this. Does the j-pipe stay on the ski or do you install it in one piece. PLEASE HELP its COLD

I have a trimmed J-pipe but what I did is put the exhaust coupler on the exhaust tip......as far on it as it can go.....put the waterbox in as far back as you can get it towards the rear........get the Jpipe in the waterbox then slide everything toward the eaxhaust manifold ......once you clamp the j-pipe to the exhaust manifold adjust the couplers as needed......tighten it all up

Thank you guys to helped alot when I cut the j-pipe 1 and 3/4 now im getting a error code p1544 which I think is a exhaust too high temp so do you guys have any ideas. I checked all the hoses and such and there was a little white smoke coming from my exhaust manifold / jpipe, but it is 43 degrees here. HELP

You probably put the clamp too low on the J pipe to waterbox coupler and its pinching off the water flow.
There are 3 pisser holes in the bottom of the jacketed portion of the J pip. If the clamp is below these holes water flow will be prevented.

i lifted the jpipe up about 1/2" started it and the samething p1544 after about 30 secs of starting with no water running through it. Got anyother ideas. im afraid of frying my exhaust manifold

Well, lifting the J pipe up is not what you want to do. It's the clamp itself that may be too low. The clamps have to be way up high near the top of the coupler.
If the clamps are too low it will pinch off the 3 pisser holes.

all 3 clamps on the JPipe are TOO CLOSE...
drop the bottom one done all the way...
loosen the middle one a tad...
