    Running without Flame Arrestors

    Two of mine fell off, any problem with running with them off for a day? I ran today with the two off...

    I wouldn't recommend running without the flame arrestor. The main purpose of the flame arrestors is to help prevent sparks or flames from entering your bilge in the event of a backfire.

    The bilge of your PWC is full of gas vapors.

    gas vapors + spark/flame = BOOM (not a good thing)
