    The hook in your hull is at the rear of the ski. Take a straight edge and place it under your ski at the back edge. You will see that it tapers down at the back edge. This taper is called a hook.

    First mod should be OPAS removal with the addition of a Riva intake grate. You won't notice any speed loss.

    In choppy conditions you will probably see a speed gain with the grate due to better hookup.

    Thanks for the info, Opas block off kit and riva intake. I was going to get the BOV first and then the opas block off. I dont think my opas even drop down because I cann't move them by hand.

    They don't drop down, but they still make a world of difference when you remove them.

    Putting a BOV on your ski won't enhance the performance at all. Spend your money on something that will make a difference.

    Your 4 year warranty will cover any supercharger clutch failure.

    Don't let all the talk of failed superchargers throw you into a panicked state. 98% of the superchargers you hear of failing are due to improper installation of the Rotax Racing heavy duty clutch assemblys. It is actually very rare to have a catostrophic failure of a stock clutch.

    Keep in mind that a clutch is a wear item and it will eventually fail (start to slip) Nothing, not even a BOV will prevent this from eventually happening.
