    FX HO Water flow question

    Hi,
    I have a 05 FX HO. The side two water spouts do not pump water during flushing. Should they? The right (starboard) side doesn't pump when running, should it? Thanks

    Hi there. I own a 2006 FX-HO. The fitting on the left is a water bypass from the exhaust manifold, you will see water flowing out of this one while underway byt not necessary while flushing. The fitting on the right side however is a bypass off the thermostat housing, you will see water flowing out of this one while underway once the thermostat reaches operating temperature and opens up to give the rider proper operation feedback. I hope this helps, Julio...

    CurtS,

    Julio is correct! Water should come out of the port side if you don't have the nose of the ski too high. Lower the nose of the ski and water should freely flow. Check out this video I made, you can see that after I dropped the nose of the ski


    Of the starboard side, there won't be water coming out on the hose. I have seen steam venting once in a great while on the water but no water.

    Thanks I was very concerned about this. Also, the water sprout is not near as high as my old Yamaha. Is that normal as well?

    Thanks CurtS!
    When I bought my Waverunner I had no idea what I need to do.
    After I learned the little I did, I figured I show this to help people like myself!

    I wanted to post this on GH but this site is mainly high performance and perhaps this is very armature!
