    +1 Toss 'em
    Much easier to wash the pump and work on it

    Hi guys i removed them, now i could spray salt-away in there too. This came about installing my new Jims performance ride plate and the rubber thing got wedged inbetween the ride plate and hull. they had to go
    thanks again

    Just remember to leave the metal support bracket in place. It may appear to just be an anchor point for the flaps, but actually helps support the nozzle.

    Yes-apparently the quieten the exhaust noise by 1 decibel-that's their only use-and to stop you cleaning/greasing the pump properly!
