LOoking to Quiet Down my Exhaust
I have been thinking alot lately about the main purpose I use my RXT for... Wakeskating. The Gibson Exhaust sounds awesome, but it really is a little too loud for me. I have even thought about plugging the through hull hole and put the stock exhaust on. I am really not concerend about performance anymore, I just want to quieten it down. My question is, how loud will the Riva rear hull pipe be with a stock waterbox?

Did you drill out the 3 holes in the J-Pipe, using a 1/4" drill bit?
Did you change out the yellow washer in the pump?
You may want to try the above.

I agree with Roger
Im told drilling out those pissers makes a big difference. try that first. Im going to do it on mine most likely. Im told that the riva box is also very quiet. I cannot confirm that because I havent heard it personally.
stock with the rear exit pipe is nice too. Ive heard it on youtube. sounds deep but not very loud. thats another option too.

Ive only heard from people, not heard the actual exhaust. Thats why I said- I cant say for certain. A lot of people have said its quiet.. thats strange. I guess people are going by what they have heard and not by personal experience since that exhaust only recently came out.
I have a rotax box- almost the same as the shorty. Im going to drill out the pissers and hope for the best. ive heard that it cuts down the noise quite a bit but no one will say how much for certain.

yea..drilling out the pissers to 1/4" helps..i think that may be one of the only options available to us.

To me the youtube sound is not the same as hearing it for yourself.
It sounds one way on youtube and then when you here it in person its different.
Just my thought.

Turn up the volume is not going to do it.
The sound is different from youtube to you being there.

You know the difference from the Green Hulk to the Gibson, he just want to know how to quiet it down.
