    The winds finally died down yesterday, so we hit the lake with the new exhaust configuration.

    I could barely tell a difference inside the boat. The tone was a little deeper, but it was not appreciably louder.

    My riders noticed a difference in the sound from behind the boat, and commented that it was louder.

    I think overall, the sound is not an issue, imho.

    So any chance of hearing it on a vid? I know we won't get the before and after but still always love that sound.

    Glad to hear it's not too crazy loud though!

    I'd have to record it someplace behind the boat, and I don't think I'm good enough to keep my recorder dry

    Default Exhaust Replacement

    I am in the same situation as you were. My exhaust is leaking and I have to do something.
    I was wondering if you tried it out yet and found out how the sound is?
    Also, does the pipe get to hot?
    Thanks

    Sorry, I just saw your last posts about the sound, that's great, but still wondering if the new exhaust pipe gets to hot?

    I haven't actually done any testing to see how hot the pipe gets, but I'm sure it's warm. I've been careful to route everything clear of the pipes. I don't think it'd get too hot, as the mufflers look to be made of PVC and or plastic. I think I've even read where some people have used PVC in this area?

    Once the motor is off, they get water in the pipes to cool them down, as well.

    Good luck.

    Thanks for the info.
    I'm going to go the same route as you because I just priced new mufflers and they are $325 each and mine are leaking enough that I have to do something.
    So I will get the short end flanged out to 3 1/2 inches and the angle to 45 deg. like you said.
    I will let you know how it goes.
    Thanks

    An easier solution might be to just run pvc or the exhaust rubber tubing jmo. you could use a 3 or 4 inch copper 45 to make the bend as well
