    mmm guessing he means the water side of the i/c, but having two inlets you would need two strainers. but a could flush after each ride should be sufficient.

    But there is NO problems recorded about dirty water circuits in the cooler circuit !!
    Obviously he has read 2 different topics and confused him self then

    cause to clean the cooler as we know you NEED to remove

    otherwise the water/salt-a-way will flush/clean the cooler water circuit

    nope.... its gotta come out... the only thing you would be doing at that point is flushing the cooling circuits like what has already been mentioned.... its not the hard to do unless you forget about one of the cooling hoses on the bottom of the intercooler....

    What solvents, if any, can be safely used to clean intercooler? What solvents, if any, will damage the i/c? I know we have discussed this before but the topic always comes back and I'm still not sure what to conclude.

    I know that many recommend cleaning i/c with hot water and dishwater detergent. But this alone did not remove the thick mocha mix that fouled my 07 Ultra (w GIO).

    No problems with i/c fouling on my 09 but:

    Even with no GIO, should the i/c be periodically removed and flushed? If so, how often?

    My 07 had a Groco filter on i/c and I used to marvel at the seaweed salad trapped in strainer after every ride. But just out of curiosity, how vulnerable is the i/c to fouling from the small, vegetative detritus? How critical is the i/c strainer for those who ride in places with a lot of small debris? When I look inside the i/c I see tons of little nooks and crannies where stufff could get trapped but is the water moving through with sufficient force that vegatative matter will just blow through anyway?

    Its easy to install the groco but if the hose ever pops off, or you screw the groco cup in slightly askew, you can take water into the hull very quickly so I'm wondering whether its "required" preventive measure or purely elective for the afficiando?
