    Exhaust clamp sliding off soultion

    Is there a way to make sure the exhaust clamp below doesn't slide off
    from pressure?

    I've pushed the clamp as far as i can to the stinger side of the first
    exhaust clamp but it popped off why running on the hose, is there
    anything i can do to make sure it doesn't pop off while riding?

    Make sure you have the tab lined up right. It should be at about 3:00

    so the actual position of the rubber that gets clamped down will keep the clamps from sliding around?

    I've never had a problem with mine leaking or coming off. I've heard it mentioned on the board before, though
    Only thing that comes to mind that I do is good cleaning of rubber coupler & J-pipe / stinger

    Are you using a stock pipe or a Riva pipe? If you are using a Riva pipe you have to tee off a dump because it builds up too much pressure.

    I ran my ski today WOT for about 3 miles it did slide closer to the edge but didn't pop off this time, i'm running the stock pipes as you can see in
    my photos the clamps is sliding to the left right off, as it gets closer to
    the dropoff of the metal (which i drew as a red line) it comes off really
    easily.

    This is a common problem caused by one or two issues.

    Your mounting surfaces are dirty. Plain and simple. Clean ALL THE GREASE out of the inside of the hoses, as well as the pipe mounting surfaces.... Use windex to lubricate the rubber, so that when it's dry it helps adhesion. Clean, clean, clean.

    The other thing is that the cooling water flow supply has been increased, but you havent increased the number of dumps... you are over pressurizing the water pipe.

    It's just this simple.

    Ok it would seem i just need to clean everything even more than i already
    did, i haven't changed the water flow that i know of unless the d-plate
    the previous owner installed increases water back pressure.

    I will note that moving the nipple to the 3 O' Clock position seemed to
    keep it from coming off so far but it's to close to the edge for my taste.

    I mean the worst thats going to happen is it's going to come off, i'm sure
    i'd hear it right? Then it's going to dump water in the hull, and i will have
    to put it back on get it out of the water and pump the water out.
