    how come i see a lot of strainers being mounted at the front of the boat?

    I noticed a lot of guys having their strainers intalled at the front of the ski, am i wrong but isnt the inlet hose the short one that runs right next to the vts to the ic and the outlet the long one that goes from the ic to the front by the closed end of the exhaust manifold under? Do I have something mixed up, isnt the strainer suppose to be on the inlet hose, the short one im talking about?

    The strainer goes in the line coming from the pump that goes to the IC. Some guys mount the strainer up front to make it easy to get to for cleaning out.

    Thats exactly why i put mine there. I'm replacing the hose from the pump to the IC so i can route it how i need to. I don't think having more hose than stock will make a difference. Just wanted an easy access, easily visible spot.
