Exhaust under water stalls ?????

I have a 08 teryx and it seems everytime i get the exhaust under water it dies. I have muzzy duals on it, but it did the same thing with the stock exhaust. Is the only fix to snorkel the exhaust out. Or am i having another problem instead of the exhaust. Its really tickin me off because its got me 4 or five times now.

It's not the exhaust, if your getting in that deep you are probably getting the coils or plug wires wet and shorting out. As long as the engine is still running water wont get back in the engine unless its getting in the intake, but if it dies under water you should pull the plugs and make sure it did suck water into the cylinders. So it sounds like your just getting something electrical wet and shorting out.

I would love to know about your fix. I had the same problem this weekend. I have dragon fire CDI and dragon fire hot coils. Do you think die electric grease on the conectors will fix this or is ther some other trick

Grease will solve all your problems. I always run my machines in the water, even balls deep sometimes and have no problems stalling.

eez, yes, you do want the die electric grease in the spark plug boots, I do it to all the trucks I tune up at work to keep water and crap out, and it helps taking the boot back off. I was also thinking that there may be something going on with the carbs, they work on vacuum and when the ehaust is under water it might affect the slides. Mabey some one that under stands these carbs/engines better can chime in on that.
