    Flushing a ski that won't turn on? Possible?

    Hey guys, long story short I've had some kind of IBR failure that is stopping the ski from starting at all.

    My dealer can't even look at the thing for a week and it's sitting with a waterbox full of salt water after stopping and being towed back to the ramp.

    Is there any way (short of taking the whole waterbox itself out) to get most of the crappy water out in the meantime?

    Also I don't seem to have a fogging port on top of my engine like my old 08 did, how are you supposed to fog these things properly without taking the spark plugs out?

    Thanks

    I'd be more worried about flushing the salt out of the IC vs the waterbox. You could disconnect your water lines off your mid pipe to flush your IC without filling up your waterbox while the engines not running.

    That port on your 08 wasn't for engine fogging.... it's for throttle body lubrication.

    Ahh ok I might do that tonight then. I don't suppose there's a picture to reference the correct lines to remove and where?

    I'd take off the mods you did to the ski and make it 100% stock again before bringing it to the stealership.
    They will void your whole warranty with mods..

    Already tuned it back to stock. Apart from that it's pretty much just filled ride plate holes. Still trying to find 4" Kana locally to do my air filter, hanger & SC adapter

    Haha, good thing I haven't put the vtechtuned sticker on yet.

    Can I just take the hoses off my I/C and blast water through one to wash it out without damaging anything?
