Water tank melted... 2006 GP1300R
Well, for those of you who followed my last thread, I found out what is wrong.
The "water tank" in the exhaust system melted.
Really annoying... any tips on how to get it out easy?

Just the connection to the waterbox and a couple of hoses. The foam wiggles out of there once the stinger is out.
It is called a sound suppresion box. Many of us bypass it with whats called a Free Flow tube.

stinger is the part of the exhaust that runs over your carbs(from the flange connector) and down to the bottom connector at the hull mid wall.
The free flow part is a 90mm diameter pipe at 150mm length, go to an exhaust place and get this in stainless (truck exhaust)
this should cost $10

over the injector throttle body
flick the foam, the plastic sound suppression and just run the pipe from the water box across to the outlet pipe.
I havent checked but there would be heaps of pics if you do a search for free flow exhaust yamaha

This is the free flow tube.
It removes the sound suppression box and ggoes from the waterbox to the outlet on the R side of the ski.
You would remove everything in there now and put this new peice in. This thread should help you. It has the old style free flow and the new on page 2 it should all make sense
Now....Free flow is going to make it louder. Removing the foam isnt going to hurt but the foam does help deaden sound.
If you order the tube form the store you get a 10% discound on the price.
If you dont want to do the tube (I personally hate it louder) you could put a WTB in the classifieds (for a new sound suppresion box). Plenty of guys have them laying around. And you can pick one up for <$50.
One more thing...If you have a look @ the freeflow threead above you will see some home made jobs that will get you on the water quickly.
