Help! I have a 2001 1100STX DI and have blown two exhaust hoses. It's the
5" hose between the manifold & waterbox. The lines that feed into the bottom of the manifold are clear. There are no warning lights that it's overheating and has a good stream of water out the side. It is not run out of the water for more than 20 seconds. With only 39 hours on the engine, this seems quite premature.
Does anyone out there have any suggestions of what could be checked? Thanks.
