To Fogg or not to Fogg
Hi to all,
Have recently bought an FZR (done 5 hours) and am rapt with the ski. Have searched the forum on fogging and came across a post which explains spraying fogging oil down the breather tube. Thought yes Ok but there must be a better way.
Previous ski was an RXTX which I did 105 hours mainly in salt water - rode every two to three weeks all year round. I would fog the ski after each ride as a precaution. Very simple on the seadoo as there were nipples (?) on each individual intake manifold. I simply drilled these and connected the three hoses to one central hose. Simple procedure was to place the single hose (which had a end cap when not in use) into a small jar of seadoo fogging oil (later used Castrol 2 stroke oil)... start the ski and run till it billowed smoke then gave it a rev and pulled the lanyard with the throttle still open. Very simple and clean. Seems a common seadoo mod but am surprised its not a widespread topic for the yamaha.
If the yams don't need it then well and good but if they do then how best to install?
Will order the riva power air filter and intake manifold upgrade kit. Considered tapping the ends of the intake manifold as Jerry has done with his Green Hulk FZR build up and using one of these for attaching a barb and hose to enable fogging oil to be sucked in.
Another thought was the R&D Multi Pressure Port Boost Guage / Surge / Adaptor fit... and attaching a fogging oil line to it. Only concern was that it is mounted near the MAP sensor which may not like a fogging oil bath.
Wold be interested in peoples thoughts.
Think the FZR and this forum are fantastic

You're fine just spraying the fogging oil into the little breather hose that goes into the intake. You know it's good and fogged once the engine stalls. No need to get crazy and start adding fogging ports. Just not necessary.

so just spraying some in the battery breather hose is enough

Guess I could have chosen better words, but I was just using what Ed had used to describe the hose.

Thx for the advice hitman.
Using a spray into the intake breather seems an easier alternative.
In Aust I have only ever seen fogging oil for marine applications (or use of 2 stroke oil) so this was the route I took on the RXTX.
Have found that AMSOL makes a Fogging oil (spray) so will have to import another thing... unless I can find some down under.
