    Quieting Shorty waterbox

    Jerry's shorty water is hands down one of the best mods we have to increase performance. It sounds great but while riding on the ski it's to loud for me and a rider. I decided to quiet it down some on the ski, I hope, by enclosing
    the water box in some dense foam. I used the stuff from Lowes that is used for shop floors, 4 pieces in a pack. I cut the foam to size and glued it on with goop. I used strap clamps to hold it altogether over night. I finished up with large tie wraps just for safety sake if the glue loosens up. Haven't run it yet but it will have to help the hull resonance some.

    lafjax,

    you did nice work. Man I can not wait to get my water box. I like it loud, loud, loud. I need it bad. Everyone will hear me comming or going rather they like it or not!!!!
    Lafjax, so the noise was too loud for your passenger. Was the noise actually coming from exhuast exit or from the hull beneath the seat exit that you did not like?

    Just curious. So on my rxp no one will want a ride? allright! yes

    lafjax, any difference noticed with your rude rising rate pres, reg from your 42 setup?

    I'm hoping there'll be something similar for the X because I really like the waterbox mod.

    lafjax you did a nice install on the waterbox clean job
    what about the stock cover that comes with the oem waterbox would that have done the same job?
    you had the shorty waterbox mod before is the green box that much louder?
