    300X Ultra -Nothing on intercooler after 30hrs

    30 hrs on ski most of them raced. Very Suprised to see how clean my intercooler is! Zero build up with stock catch can. I flush it on occasion with plain water no soap. Wonder why everyone else has gummed up ones could it be the aftermarket catch cans?

    The harder you ride the better it will be when u ride soft more build up occurs. Also u have very dry air in Vegas. That will help allot as well.

    Very nice... some have said that the harder you ride them the less oil you get- could be something to that seeing as you mostly raced yours.

    Yea i was expecting alot of build up since its the first time i was gonna clean it. Looks like i wont be doing any cleaning today =)
    Guess the racing and hard riding is true about build up

    On a side note does the routing of the blue cable runnning under the water box look correct? Looks like its rubbing a bit on the hull.

    I fog for 10+ seconds after EVERY ride... I pulled off my BOV and it was "well oiled" so I suspect my I/C will be fairly fouled at 27 hours. I have read MANY threads here about the stock catch can construction. The oil I'm seeing on the BOV is VERY light. Much like the fogging oil. I’m running 20W50 Mobil 1 in the engine. My Ultra 300X is ridden recreationally, and sees lots hard acceleration bursts on an inland lake (Lake Cumberland). I'll have mine apart for the 25 hour maintenance very soon. I am seeing the RPMs starting to creep lower (RPM = 7850 Max) as time progresses.

    Takes to long to burn off and really has no benefit unless your in salt water or high humidty areas. Las Vegas is dry so fogging is pointless for me. My rpms are at 7870 max but i have some mods and ecu reflash

    I'm pretty sure that cable goes under the the water box through the plastic liner. I'd have to go look at mine to confirm but pretty sure it does not run on top like that.
