    Water inside exhaust normal??

    Hi Guys,

    As part of my 2010 RXT shaft replacement, I took out the exhaust for some extra working space inside the hull...

    Is it normal for the exhaust to have a bit of water in it ??

    Hahahaha...

    Ok, so I studied the workshop manual and cam to the conclusion that it's normal as the water actually gets injected into the exhaust

    Hehehehe... I thought the exhaust cooling worked on a heat exchange principle, where the water was actually kept separate from the exhaust gasses... But we all know what happens with assumptions

    Technically speaking, the reason why BRP injects the water in the box is to lubricate the bearings.
