  • 07 X2 Stainless Exhaust tip Problem

    Has anyone had their baffles come out on their stainless exhaust tips? The other day I thought that my engine threw a bearing. (50hrs) It was making a weird knocking sound that came and went. I dropped off the boat at the dealer and they went through the boat and found that the port baffle was rattling really bad and making the knocking sound. Nonetheless; they removed the baffle completely because there is no way to weld it back in place. My question : Is anybody runnig their 07 MC without the baffels in the tips? And will this cause a problem with my engine and how load is it? Keep me posted... I will attach a pic with the baffles in place.

            I'd be sure and get documentation that is is upon their recommendation to run this thing without the baffle!

              As with most motors that you run WFO all the time then straight pipe is okay, but for what we usually use our boats for, pulling wakeboard or skiing then some back pressure is good for torque and efficency.

                    that thing in the middle is a sacrificial anode to protect the metals in the boat from electrolysis. These are needed on boats used in saltwater to prevent the shafts, thruhulls, props, rudders, other stuff from being eaten away. It gets eaten away first to protect the good stuff.

                    essentially a very slight electrical current is generated by the metals being in the water, and some materials are more affected than others. The electricity flow is into the water, and the electrons have to come from somewhere. In this case the anode is grounded to the rudder and shaft, so the anode corrodes instead of the props, shaft, rudder, stainess steel exhaust tips, etc.

                      ok, just didn't recognize it, seems like a strange place to put it. Normally on a boat like that, it'd be on the prop shaft. I know how they work, just couldn't tell what it was.

                        The baffles are installed to protect your engine from taking in water thru your exhast when you slow down coming off plane or from a wave when just sitting. I would replace the exhaust tips with new baffles.

                          Shouldn't that be taken care under the warranty?

                              I went out on the water today with the one baffle missing. It sounded like a race boat taking off. Funny......
