    What are you using to pinch for towing?

    I have a 2013 GTR, but I assume all the new skis have the same size hose to pinch.

    most guys just add a valve.. turn off for towing and turn on for riding.. but make sure you dont forget to turn on for riding..

    i know some guys tie the lanyard for the key to the valve and have it hang out of the seat so when you reach for the key to start the machine you remember to turn the valve to open.

    Thanks, after doing more reading I found the valve information and picked one up from Homedepot on my lunch break. I just hope I don't have to use it.

    Those new gtr skis are near bullet proof.

    Since the GTR is closed loop cooling, what water are you getting from the pump that needs to be blocked off during towing?

    The coolant hose that runs from the pump to the exhaust. When towing it will fill the entire exhaust system w water and then the engine will fill w water

    here you go. if you trace it, it should go to the front underside of the exhaust manifold. thats the one you need to put the valve in
