    You need to get the T-bolt clamps, you will need to measure the OD of the hose when you get your RXT-X.

    You can get clamps from Hot produces or your best bet is your frendly NAPA parts store, you need a 4 inch clamp.

    So the clamps for the hose that connects the waterbox to the exhaust manifold are 4 inchers?

    He could be right, I got new T-bolts for my Riva Exhaust and the OD silicone coupler measured 3.1600" (I used my digital caliper). The measurement was taken with the exhaust tube in the coupler. I ordered clamps for 2.75" silicone coupler. But this is on the Riva thru hull exhaust sytem for an 06 RXT, not the oem.

    I really dont think clamps are going to fix the problem, its only going to prolong it. The hose needs to be modified or replaced.

    Sanding the flange on the waterbox with 60 grit will help keep the hose from slipping off.

    How would you modify it?

    Or, what would you replace it with?

    get inside the hose and ruff it up with a dremel/sandpaper wheel, add hightemp silicone. like they do on the 215 hose going into the Jpipe. I could see a recall coming soon
