    almost sucked a paper towel thru my sc !!

    I'm an idiot,replacing battery, pulled filter element off riva tube,stuck a paper towel in the end just to be safe.....

    put the new battery in and started the friggin thing,when i remember,no more paper towel sticking out the end

    pulled the tube, and it was just about to enter the sc!!

    how ugly would it have been if it had in jested it??

    i can't be "in a hurry" when i work on this thing

    try stopping to make a fuel adjustment on your regulator while out testing and take your motorcross gloves off lay them over your TORNADO rear air making the adjustment and then going to put your seat back knowing you cant find the other glove and thinking its in the water because your rushing and then lighting your boat only to turn your motocross glove into confetty when u gas it.......... not only DESTROYING your PROTOTYPE RACE supercharger but blow so much motocross glove confetty up inside your intercooler you think its junk as well until u FINALLY get it cleaned out....first thing that came to my mind was COMPLETE F**KING IDIOT...it really SUCKED I CAN ASSURE U!!!!!!!!!...long story short u got LCUKY........ PERIOD!!!!!!!!

    You would have been cleaning a bunched of paper towel mulch out of your IC.
    Paper towel isn't too bad. I know of one ding dong who sucked up a mx glove ( I see he beat me to the post^^^^^) and another dingaling that sucked up a shop towel even after I reminded him to remove it from his intake after seeing it in a pic he sent me.
    Heard of another dude that sucked a coke can all the way through his front intake. LOL
    I also know someone who sucked a paper towel down into his motor after placing it around the cam chain to avoid getting anything in his motor and after he bolted the valve cover back on and fired it up. Ended up having to pull the motor to clean it out.

    I can tell you!... your intercooler will look as if it's full of snow

    Funniest thing I've ever seen... was riding with a buddy who sucked up a doctor pepper bottle, cap first... through a 4" PVC front air intake. The charger wheel completely ground the top of the cap off. Didn't hurt anything.... but the ski sure did run like shit with that in there, and it took forever to get that thing out of that PVC intake

    Fortunately I left this guy in the outlet of the SC and all it did was hang out in the IC for a little while.

    be glad it was not piece of dynamat! It souned expensive and was expensive. It happened when testing a new external intake set up. The fron thood was covered with dynamat to deaden the banging plastic in rough water.

    You guys really shouldn't use your intercoolers as filters. Lol
    you got to keep your Hull free of debris when running no pre filter.
