    After market flame arrestors ?

    Just looking at getting abit more out of my 98 xp ltd and after market flame arrestors and re jetting seems the first step.

    I do a lot of ocean riding and wave jumping and my ski takes on a fair bit of water. Are there any problems of increased chance of water ingestion with aftermrket arrestors compared to the stock arrestor ?



    P.S - was aiming at following "bens secret mods" that seems to be the way to go - any comments ?

    Plug the ports in the front of the ski and get outerwear for the filters. I'm sure the chances of ingestion are going to be greater. My 2 cents, and plans for the summer

    Plus one for Pro K's and Outerwears and a re-jet.... Ohh and for blocking up the two front ports.

    Thanks to SURFnTURF for sorting out the filters and my jetting for me!

    PROK Filters are about the only one's universally recommended for performance applications.

    However, the 'blue' pre-filters which may come with them are for dust, not water. Water will go right through them.
    If water ingestion is your concern then you need to get a set of the same pre-filters which are 'Black',, those are the water repellent ones which still allow for the best flow.
    Their part number is 006-585 for the XPL Mikuni 46mm Carbs. PROK F/A's
