    This is safe for riding if exhaust flush falls out?

    I tried to attach a filter for salt away with their piece of shit chinese hose attachment. Well the exhaust flush fell out and won't go back in!

    I am guessing this area is sealed off on the inside considering how easily the seal came off... but I wanted to ask here before I call BRP or find out the hard way.

    Itís a 2 person job to put it back on , itís got a plastic nut on the back inside the ski to hold the flush port in place , if you look closely the seal is on the outside along with the flush port.

    fuck sakes, I just checked and it goes straight to everything. What a piece of shit design. I posted without popping the seat up. How do I even reach it without taking half the parts out???

    Use a long broom stick and push against the rear but hence I said it was a 2 person job , one holding broom stick and the other using a ratchet with extension to screw it back on , or take it all apart and dive in. This hardly ever happens and only happens more when flush port adapter are screwed on to
    Hard vs hand snug .

    Just telling you how to fix it, you can jump backflips all day for all I care , you asked a question in a public forum if you did not wants the answer then donít ask and take it to a repair shop that can properly handle it .

    Yea its going to a repair shop, so if I sink in the middle of the ocean, I know who to sue if I survive. Atleast this shit broke on land in my garage! I barely even put any energy into turning the chinese junk filter that got stuck in it until it popped out. It was probably due for a break and this was a good sign it happened far away from water.

    Itís not broke, you unscrewed it by over torquing it. Your fuck up.

    Similar thing happened with my port drain plug. Went to remove the plug and the entire drain neck assembly, part number 292001315 came out.

    Apparently, there is a bushing (plastic nut) on the other side of the hull, part number 292001371 that holds the neck assembly in place.

    https://www.sportshops.com.br/pecas-...ginal-brp.html

    The problem, as you've discovered is actually getting access to the bushing. For mine, it happened to be under the iBR - big PITA.

    What I did was screw the assembly back in as much as I could (it wouldn't tighten completely) and seal it off with RTV. Been like that for years with no problems.

    This is why I love those access panels on my S3.
