    Ok I know this is a real greenhorn question?! but...

    Ok guys I feel a bit stupid to ask this but would like to know before my rxp melts between my legs!

    I have a 2005 rxp 215 s/c i/c. i noticed on its maiden voyage that there are 2 holes on the right hand side at the front.... pisser holes..... and found that nothing comes out of them... I have riddenthe ski about 20 hours now and have no probs with over heating. Even on a trailer and hose the pisser is dry, but there is water coming from my pump housing and exhaust which is now a riva rear exit.

    I just took it for granted that nothing comes from these. I followed one tube and its only 2 feet long if that and is just open in teh bottom of the hull, as for the other it disappears.

    Obviously the engine is fine as it is a closed system but this is cooling for the exhaust only, again i have water flowing from the exhaust tip so i guess this is ok?

    only asking as my 2001 RX has a nice arching water feature from the front whilst in the sea and on a hose?

    any ideas to put my mind at rest? cheers

    One is a fuel tank vent and the other is a battery vent

    Few, thats good news, thanks for the info, least I'll sleep well at night knowing I'm not gonna melt my manifold or summit!

    The loose one must be the battery vent, the guy I bought ski from changed the battery and couldnt even tighten the terminals properly, so I had no chance of him refitting the fume tube!

    Haha, definitely not a stupid question. I was cleaning my ski last night and saw those. I too was wondering what they were.
