    The water seperator is on the vent side not the supply side. You will need a fuel filter for each pick up that you use though.

    The seperator is on the vent, not the return.

    regarding the fuel/water seperators

    now that I'm working on multiple brands of skis, I find it odd that this fuel water seperator is on the vent line and the fuel filter is inside the tank on both feed lines. I was sure this was a mistake in the parts drawing, but now I see proof postive that the drawing are correct and my thinking was wrong.

    I would think there would be one standard design that would prevent fuel spillage AND tank collapse.

    Still scratching my head on this one. I prefer the polaris setup where there is a big ole easy gotten to easy to change fuel /water filter.

    anyhow, I've taken to adding an inline filter to all of my repairs since it seems sand is a bigger issue here in NM then it ever was in miami ( our sand is much finer and often windblown, so it seems to find it's way into the carbs more readily)

    I don't miss water with salt water problems the least bit.

    that is the water trap on the vent line to prevent water from entering the tank! the Yami filters are supposed to be water separators by design due to the oval shape

    OH! I prefer the Polaris style also! all three of my yamis have them!
