It can leak on any ski, but the problem is primarily found on the VX model due to the design of the joint pipe connection, and the sealant that Yamaha uses. The 760 has a different type of seal, but it may still leak.
I can tell you from past posts, and other guys that have done the repair, the it will not work trying to just add sealant (at least on the VX model). To completely fix the leak you have to completely remove the seal, clean it and use a good quality marine sealant to fix it. You may not have to remove the engine, but you will probably need to pull it forward enough to be able to get the joint apart and cleaned.
