    Jetworks Valve?

    Been reading about Jetworks valves quite a bit. Looking for personal opinion on wether I should get one for my 94 SLT or not? Looks like they are available in 3/8" and 1/4" - Would I get the same size as the ID of the water line?

    Thanks in advance!!

    IMO they are a great piece, but NOT for a recreational ski.

    really more for a race boat, to keep the exh dry, while on line. on a rec ski, they can cause couplers / hose etc to over heat, OR if you set them lighter, so you are spraying water at lower RPM's then they are not giving you the full benefit.

    I installed one on my Pro 1200 to replace the stock one. I used clear hose with it so I could look and see if there was water flowing. It stopped flow at idle, and I would imagine if you were idling for a long time that it would overheat the exhaust couplers. I do have a silicone coupler on mine, that will hold up to a little more heat. The thing I noticed while watching water flow is that about 1/4 throttle it would let water flow. I think it will work if you are idling for an extended period to throttle up every 30 seconds or so to get the water flowing and cool the exhaust. Someone chime in here if my thinking is incorrect. I don't want to be cooking hoses.

    I agree with Ziggy, save your money on your ski,you won"t notice a difference for the money.

    The idea was to keep your waterbox dry for starts on the race course, You have your holders lift the back of the 2 stroke out of the water and you rev the engine up and blow the waterbox out, then while you wait, the waterbox doesnt fill back up with water, then the start band snaps you can nail your throttle and get a better hole shot on the next guy, because your waterbox/muffler is dry,
    no need for recreational riders,
