    rgard32,
    the 97-98 pros did not come from the factory with the jetworks vavles .they came stock on the 99-00 and the way yours is setup is just like my 2000 .the 99-00 where setup that way because if idle for a long period of time the water will still come out of the pissers and you won't overheat.

    Lugs is correct. The valves in the pic are check valves and not jet works valves. The Jet Works valves are check valves with a cracking preasure of aprox 4-6psi. Pic #1 is 1998 routing and pic #2 is 1999 routing.

    Just posted this on another thread and since i still have the handy link copied, i'll paste it here.

    Randy, and CrazyA both recommended running a single valve ('97-'98 routing)

    I started with 3 like you have yours and ended up going to one valve before even tryin it. The routing can be changed fairly easily.

    It basically has one benefit, it keeps your exhaust and waterbox from filling up with water at idle or low throttle. The engine will seem to have better low end and throttle response cause it isnt working to clear that water when you nail the gas (hole shots etc..)

    You just have to remember that in extended idle periods (no wake zones etc..) that the valve is closed and not cooling your stinger hoses which can weaken and or melt them.

    I rec ride mine and haven't had any problems yet.

    Polaris redesigned the water routing to eliminate flooding the engine. What would happen is at idle the front waterbox would fill up then you pull your craft to the boat launch and if it is a steep ramp the water from the waterbox would travel down the pipes and fill the cylinders with water. Not good. Always clear the water from the exhaust system before trailering up a steep ramp.
