Speed Pick Up hose... here is what happened
Well got the new motor in Running according to my GPS 82 MPH lol ya right?.... prob around mid 60's
anyway i was putting the shroud over the Drive Shaft coupler and the shourd spun with the coupler obviously the shroud is the wrong size. But it spun the Speed Pitot hose with it i untangled the mess checked it seemed on until i took it out and noticed the Speedomoter on the MFD was not working and as i got faster water was spitting out of the Handlebars...
so to replace or reattach this hose i have to remove the entire steering colum right?
i didnt see a How to on this does anyone know or can point me in the right direction?

You need to re-thread the clear hose back up to the back of the MFD.
Remove the MFD and look behind, you might get lucky and find the end of the hose within reach.

On my ski it was very easy to re-thread through there. There was plenty of space once I pulled out the storage bucket and popped out the MFD I ran it right along the bad hose pulling the bad one out as I went along.
BTW: Mine got chewed up also when my sleeve came loose last month and entire section stated spinning. Sh*t happens.

Thanks for the help guys!...
so just open the hood take out the storage and unbolt the bolts under the hood? or does the MFD pop out?

It should have 2 spring clips on each side,slide a small screwdriver on each end and pop it out.

and the spring clips are from the inside? going up or on the outside of the steering where the display is? at work atm so trying to get as much info as i can before jumping into it!

You can thread the new hose from inside the ski by taking the storage bucket out once you have removed the MFD. I think there is a diagram on K447's signnature that illustrates how the butter knife should be inserted into the pad to get the MFD out.
Here it is.
