    kanaflex trouble

    well after having the 4 inch kana on for a while, i noticed that at the sc intake where it makes the turn going into the sc inlet looks like it is getting hot and starting to lose its shape! like it melting almost. anyway is there any kind of metal 90 degree elbow that i can replace it with, are any of you guys seeing this too?

    its been on for a few seasons, but it is really starting to lose its circumfrence. the only thing keeping it open is the the springs in the kana. you should be good for a while.

ID:	274662are yall running these 90's on your skis, no fitting issues as far as the 90 having to be trimmed for proper fit? i assume the flow of air is being severly interupted from the shape of this.

    Your problem is not heat. The Kanaflex hose is made from EDPM rubber and is not compatible with petroleum oil.

    Oil from the front SC seal or your blow by hose if you are not running a catch can. Does the hose have any oil in it? Silicone is not compatibly with petroleum as well.

    Look at the picture in post #488 here: http://www.greenhulk.net/forums/show...96#post1956196

    www.siliconeintakes.com

    90* elbow 4"
    SS coupler 4"
    4" T-bolt clamps - 3
    R&D SC adaptor


    You definitely got something bad going on there!
