    Planet removal from 2000 Virage 1200

    Need some ideas here from those that have done this...

    Removed all the plant stuff from my virage 1200 as it was cracking and coming apart.

    So I picked up a plastic "hose" from a virage 700.. The length and bends are almost perfect to go from the Water box to the very last baffle/outlet that I left in the ski.

    #1: The flexible rubber coupler on the water box outlet (1200) is a little large for the virage 700 "hose". Can I just tighten it down a bit?

    #2: The 700 "hose" is a little small (I.D.) to fit over the 1200 baffle/outlet. I've read some people have heated them and shoved together.
    - What about a coupler here? could I add one?

    Just looking for ideas from anybody that has gone this route.

    Thanks!
    Trey

    On my MSX,I used a couple of different hoses and used a piece of Aluminum Tubing to connect, you could use steel ,but might have to change out every few years if you run salt. If you can use a heat gun to warn it might be able to stretch it big enough, and if too big try double clamoing it with 2 clamps with the screw on different sides.

    If it is FI, I think I'd try and get a replacement box.

    Thanks for the input.

    The double clamp on the waterbox side was my plan. The pass through hull side I'm still trying to decide what to do since both sides of the junction are harder plastic with no real give. A few people have mention heating the tube from the 700. It just seems like a rubber coupler and some clamps would be easier. And since the two hoses being joined are hard sided do I need a metal sleeve or anything?

    Yes,

    But the "hose" from the 700 doesn't look exactly like that. But, its the same basic idea.

    Somebody commented on my first project thread and said they had done the heat and shove method.... I need to look back through there.

    Bout time to get these ready for the season...


    Also,

    Question:

    Last year at the end of the season we had our little guy and spare time has almost been non-existant. Before it got "coldish" here in TExas I pulled the batteries and fogged the cylinders in the MSX and the virage... But sadly, I didn't put in stabil or anything in the tank or run anything through the carbs or inj on the MSX. So they have gas that has been there since last September in them.

    What all should I do for this season?
    MSX: New Plugs and Let er rip?

    Virage:
    Carb Clean?
    It still has the gray lines so I guess I should replace those?


    Thanks!

    Got the 700 tube on using the stock water box coupler on the "exit" side of the tube... Now I just need to pick up another coupler for the waterbox side.
