    Missing pressure regulator?!?

    I bought a Seadoo GSX 951cc -98 few days ago. I saw today that the pressue regulator for the water was gone. The guy who had it before, then removed it and bypass it in some way. Is it ok to drive so or do I have to buy a new one?

    Welcome to GH! He probably put a Jetworks kit in it, which, when tuned properly, offers better performance over stock.

    Look at the stinger (tailcone of the pipe) and see if it has a hose coming out of it.

    It is plumbed to the stinger but without a valve?

    Is anything going to the Mid-Pipe fitting?

    It probably has a jet in that fitting at the stinger.

    I can blow right through the "valve" Dont think there is a jet fitted.
    The small black hose goes to the midpipe

    There is no valve in that pic. If there is a jet in the fitting you would still be able to blow air through it (water is much thicker, you see).

    The only way that would work is if the fittings were jetted (known as hard jetting) to restrict the amount of water going into the exhaust flow. Too much water and you will not be able to rev all the way up. If there is not enough water it will not run well down low.

    If it is just dumping water into the pipe through the MP and the stinger with no jet to cut back the flow it is just dumb. Even if hard jetted I am not a fan of the setup.

    IMO, plug that stinger hole and put it back stock with a WCV on the water box.
