    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.

    I saw that it is like $130... is it needed? If you take it out and replace it (I am assuming with just tubing) do you have to do anything else?

    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

    Mine is a 2006... no carbs, right?

    Also, do you leave out the foam? Do you need it if there is no water tank?

    Thanks... I am a total noob and really don't know much... but I would like to skip work and take it out on the water tommorrow.

    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

    No need for foam just gets in the way, and get the SS tube like bryan suggested. Then download yourself a service manual for your year ski...You will get this fugured out and ; Hey welcome to the forums...Lots of very talented people here....

    This is the free flow tube.
    http://www.4-tecperformance.com/inde...roducts_id=125

    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

    http://www.greenhulk.net/forums/show...ight=free+flow


    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.
