    sxr 1500 water box removal

    Started removing my waterbox last night from my 1500. Having it welded. It looks like the entire engine needs to come out. Was hoping to just slide engine forward but no luck. If you have done this, what worked?

    If your looking to do this loosen the engine bolts, remove exhaust manifold. Cut that waterborne open. +3mph

    Got pics of it opened up? Or did you basically cut it and half and get the insides out?

    Re: sxr 1500 water box removal

    I'm not sure why my post says +3 mph. I don't recall posting that. It added mid range. Bad *** growl. Nothing up top. I used a black sharpie to diagram the flow on the outside of the waterbox. You need to be really accurate. It has specific tube lengths, chambers and flow route. If you just cut it might end in disaster. I removed some of the extra baffles. Shortened it 3". Then had my friend weld it up. I have pics somewhere. You can see enough of the internals to diagram safely.

    Lack of interest, so I never posted pics. You will need a skilled guy to weld the box back together. Basically the engine needs to come out. Over hoist helps. Make sure you understand the flow before cutting. Use a sharpie and make everything on the outside of the box. You only need to remove the rear most set of baffles.

    So if you remove the front baffles it screws up the flow? Handling? My buddy cut and removed the front baffles and now his ski rides like itís a pencil. Very unstable and wants to torque to the right when off throttle.

    Im not sure what you are referring to? The baffles Im referring to are inside the water box. If you removed the sponsons its going to be a rough ride.

    Nevermind. He put in a stock water box and didnít fix the problem. My buddy has a 5mil cut back on his 13/17 impeller. Heís gonna shim it to stock and see if that fixes it. He has the jcracing sponsons on his as do I and they work great.
