    Thinkin Exhaust Gaskets?

    Just got a top end rebuild and new SC installed by dealer. pump hoses popping off left and right. Cowling blowing off. simply unbelievable.

    anyways, i took care all the major problems but my ski is topping at 7500 and its kinda erratic on top end. I took the seat off and brought ski up to speed and saw some water leaking down from exhaust manifold. i gave the bolts an extra half turn to see if snugging it up more would help. Not really. So i need a new gasket right? Do these symptoms sound right to all u who have gone through leaky exhaust gaskets. I'd say im down about 300 rpm from before the rebuild.

    So what are the tricks? i think im gonna do it myself so im not ski-less.
