    Quick question about 4" intake

    When you guys install a 4" intake on your ski's do you remove the factory vent hoses or leave them. Getting kinda crowded under there.

    Part number 4-flexible hose.

    Thanks in advance!!!

    Yes it is a great advantage to bring the larger dimension.

    I guess my only concern is I ride in rough water and the ocean alot and I was worried about water splashing around inside the ski without them. I never really looked to see how wet they were after a ride. the only advantage I see from the tubes is that if water does come in it directs it to the bottom of the hull.

    They are to direct water to bottom but mainly to keep water out if you turn the ski over.

    I ditched mine last season, no difference noted when riding. I mainly ride in smooth waters but have taken the ski out in the Bay a few times. In the really rough waters the ski would pick up a tiny bit of water but thats normal. Nothing inside the hull appeared to be wet, just a tiny bit of water in the bottom of the hull. My finances ski has these tubes installed still and her ski took on the same amount of water mine did.

    I have a few pre-filter covers in stock for the 4" intake that help with peace of mind
