Default Silent choice Y pipe leaking water

as rpm goes up, i hav a small leak from the pivot pin in the Y pipe, so water leaks inside the bilge
and i tolerate no water in my bilge, like nothing.
Are these leak fixable? Or i need to buy new y pipes?

The rubber boots on mine have always covered those pins. Possible yours are too high? Those pins are near the top of the y pipe. The replacements don’t use the pins but have nubs that snap into those holes.

Times 2. I also had a leak on a new boat I purchased last year. Flapper was removed per service buliten and the rubber boot was to high and not covering pin.

Call Corsa Marine, there are two o rings on the shaft that need replaced, most likely they will send them n/c

For future reference, that is your diverter valve not y-pipe.

Yep they leak there. See one to 5 every year leak. Sometimes after the heat builds up they stop leaking. Sometimes once again.
