    gibson water level question

    sitting with the engine off.. will water backup and flood the gibson? If so, is it easily cleared? Is the J pipe enough to keep it cleared out of the engine if the ski is flipped? I just wondered because i notice the exhaust is off the back of the muffler and not off the top like the waterboxes...

    thx

    I run my waterbox outlet straight out the back of the waterbox and have no problems, it will naturally fill with some water whilst engine is off but clears as soon as you start it up.

    Question about water again. It probably isn't a problem but I just want to be sure, I ride in the surf alot, jump waves etc. Could this be a problem? Because sometimes when I land I'm almost vertical, not sure if that could cause a problem. I have stock exhaust right now, probably going to get the Gibson, if everything checks out. Thanx

    water will fill in it naturaly, but will easily clear out once started.water shouldnt get into the engine. you would have to be rocking atleast 4 or 5 foot in the air with the engin off before it happened. honestly i know i wont sit in that crazy water, sea sick

    there is no way for water to get it and come up the j-pipe as long as the j-pipe is higher than the water level, which unless your sinking it is at all times

    Just a little bump, my ski took on a little water today, and the water backflowed thru the Gibson->J-Pipe-> into the cylinders. . .
