    Hole in resonator 2008 RXTX

    I recently ran my 2008 RXTX 255 in shallow water and it over heated and almost sank. I removed the seat noticed smoke coming from the engine bay that smelt like burning plastic. I noticed a hole melted through the exhaust resonator. I also noticed the EGTS was popped out of the muffler. Any other plastic parts in the exhaust I should check? It still starts and idles but then I notice the burnt plastic smell after about 10 sec of idling. Any other areas I need to check? Thanks for the help?

    Pull the pump and clean the strainer. Probably plugged solid

    The stock plastic exhaust components are an issue and prone to leaking. This is why I'm a huge advocate of going with a rear exhaust. It eliminates this issue, plus it sounds and looks great. This is the exhaust you'd need for your ski

    Thanks for the advice! I’ll look into a straight pipe. Since the straight pipe is metal; in the event the same circumstance happened, where would all the pressure go? I’d assume a hose or clamp would bust?

    are y’all aware of any plastic exhaust parts that are on the left side of the motor? When I started the ski on the trailer I noticed smoke coming from that area that smelt like plastic.
