    GPR Air intake hoses

    Is there any technical reason to keep the hoses on the air intakes on GPR, the ones up front? I know they are to reduce water coming in while inverted, but do most guys here remove them? They are a good restriction to air flow which is a bit limited on the GPR anyway and our 1390's are needing more air.

    I chunk em... or remove the bottom plastic "ball" pieces and just run them to either side of the tank for rough water conditions

    Not sure of the "ball" pieces you are referring to. My hoses are open on the ends, they just criss cross and lay on top of the tank.
