    MSX150 water box removal?

    What are the pitfalls of removing the muffler on my MSX150?
    Of course it will be louder, and this may be annoying enough not to do this.

    Reason for the question is sometime in the near future my weeping patches will start spouting water, the parent metal refused to weld as successfully as it could have. No complaints the repair cost me nothing and has extended its life a season.The muffler was left quite some time full of salt water, this caused major corrosion and splitting apart.
    Some might say just buy a new one! I would if they were a little cheaper, freight and exchange rates make you think of ways to cheat.
    Cheers

    You talking about the SS waterbox, not the plastic resonator sections - correct?

    There may be other PWC waterboxes that would fit (even from other brands), not just the OEM part number from Polaris.

    I think many PWC waterboxes are very similar inside, with mostly variations in how the exhaust hose fittings are positioned.

    Hi K447,

    I wish it were stainless, the MSX150 is aluminum. i will investigate other options for a waterbox.
    The plasitic reasonator does not look like it is any restriction at all just something designed to keep things quiet. It has a straight through path.

    Do the guys that race use any sort of water box / muffler system? I would imagine just a peice of bent pipe.

    Cheers
