    FU**! XP ran without waterbox rave.

    Just took the XP out for a minute and noticed it was way down on power so I stopped and looked it over found the cap had fell off the waterbox rave, the hull was filled with smoke.

    So what I screw up? Exhuast couplers?

    Should have only melted the coupler between the pipe and the tube to the waterbox. Check the waterbox coupler too though. And I'd pull the crossover pipe to make sure the inside isn't blistered up, causing a restriction.

    Head and manifold are still silver.

    I'm guessing it's one of the rubber couplers since it smelt like rubber. I'll get it out of the water and pull the crossover pipe and check the couplers.

    I'm still having problems with it not turning but 6500rpms. any other ideas on what can cause low RPMS?
