    Help -Need help on 2000 XL1200 Exhaust

    Hello - I just bought a 2000 XL1200 basket case. The engine and all parts came in a big box. I'm reassembling it and I think I am missing some exhaust parts in the rear of the ski. The only parts I have is the aluminum muffler, a rubber tube to the tube that goes out the hull. The exploded view shows a "resonator" and a "water tank" and some other tubes - I seem to be missing all. I can't imagine that stuff fitting back there. Can someone be kind enough with a 2000 XL1200 take a couple digital pic of their exhaust part in the rear of their ski?

    maybe it's a free flow tube? does it fit to the muffler (waterbox) and reach the back of the hull on the other side? or is it 150mm long and fits to a second rubber?

    Yes - it does look like someone installed a Riva Free Flow tubes on my ski. I've not delt with the free flow tubes before. I was going to buy all the parts to return this to the factory setup but that's like $500! Are the free flow tubes safe to run? Is there higher risk of getting water back into the engine? This is basically our family's ski so I don't want to take a chance it flood.

    No worries on water coming in through the exhaust. It will be louder which can be annoying.

    That's a great idea. However, when I try it says I need at least 20 post before I can post in the classifieds - crap. I guess this counts as one more.
