    Not that important really.. Do you ride in fresh or salt water, its advised that you leave the crankcase hose routed to the intake if you ride in salt water..

    It's definitely not needed on a bone stock ski... and questionable on a lightly modded ski... but a definite need for a medium to heavily modded ski!!!

    I ride mostly on a river. some visits out to the sea but pretty rare. Only mods this summer will be 4" intake system and riva intake grate.

    If your planning to keep your stock IC & charger... just plumb your breather hose into your new air intake somehow... and be done with it

    Cut a slit/hole in the Kanaflex and stick the breather hose nipple in.

    Where in Milford are you?

    You dont need it.

    IMO, youre better off without it if you ride in saltwater. The oil will go back into your supercharger and lube it up.

    So what happens to Christina's old GSX? Selling it? Or did you sell it already?

    I just put a slit in the Kanaflex and popped that hose end in the slit and it's fine.
