    Putting my ski back together. Still have salt in inter cooler from panama city. What can I clean it out with? Keep in mind I live in Midwest so I can't find something like salt away. Thanks

    I'd probably try hot water initially and try to disolve some of that salt. I'd then probably use fuel and let it dry (but you might be able to skip the fuel step if you haven't got any oil in there). Just keep flushing it though with lots of hot water, that's what I'd do.

    Cut a hose connect other end to flushing port, pour vinegar into hose then flush as per normal starting off with slow running water for a couple of mins them turn tape to mid pressure for a few more mins.

    I only use vinegar in-between 5 to 8 days of riding (just normal flushing every other day and keep flushing till i cant taste salt)



    You can also flush engine
    (Works similar to salt away but a lot cheaper).

    I only undertake above in-between 5 to 8 days of riding (just normal flushing every other day and keep flushing till i cant taste salt)



    You can also flush engine same as above 1 to 1 and 1/12 L of vinegar

    Boating people have been doing this for years (Works similar to salt away but a lot cheaper).
