    Quick Question

    Hey guys, I removed the 2 rubber curtain pieces from the rear of my ski that goes on either side of the pump. The bracket at the top that the 2 rubber pieces bolt to....can I just remove that as well if I'm not going to put the rubber pieces back. It's only held in by 2 bolts and seems to serve only as a mounting point for those rubber pieces. The reason I ask is because someone has told me that little metal bracket acts as a support strut for the rear of the ski. Anyone else ever hear this ?

    So you're saying the metal bracket that the 2 rubber pieces mount to at the top of the ski is there for structural support ? Nothing else attaches to this bracket except those rubber pieces.

    The brackets attached to the pump as picture stay in. It help supports the pump.

    I have a SHO, my bracket doesn't attach to my pump, it's just got 2 bolts holding the bracket to the ski and that's it. I'm guessing the FZ's need the extra support for the pump and the SHO doesn't.

    Leave the bracket in place but take out the two rubber pieces! Extra support for the pump and tunnel.

    to clarify----

    FZR/S----leave it in as it provides extra support for the pump

    SHO/HO---you can remove it as it does nothing but hold the rubber curtain in place--once you remove the rubber curtain, it has no purpose
