    Catch can smoke

    Hi all!

    I have a bit of white smoke coming from the catch can at idle... Is it normal?

    Not a lot... But a small continuous white fume... Oil is good... Nothing acting weird...

    Thanks for the help again

    mine always had some breather vapour/smoke, but if it turns to more of it, and thick, then maybe u have dramas...

    before the air intake install, that hose was plumbed back in so u would not have seen it b4

    they are lean from factory, and u have added more air/power. so yes u will be lean. How much and is it damaging, nobody really knows with a reading. If u never intend to push the ski any harder, maybe leave it. Otherwise get an afr and gauge. U need info if its to go much faster safely. The innovate setup with the tiny weatherproof gauge is good. Its so small and light, and attachs with velcro. mine is just under info screen and looks good

    Did you nearly get 200hrs out of the charger ?

    That's trust there, I still won't push mine past 100hrs regardless of what seadoo say they will last

    Yeah, I know But it's still under warranty... So! It's a good way to test what they are saying But the SC is still doing a good job... I've test slip and looks all good... Until now... But, rpm are ~7900rpm but speed is ~70mph... I'm loosing speed and I can't find why... Plugs? SC? Anyway, he's going to the dealer, my friend will check everything + so the manifold upgrade... All this is a bit new for me...

    Stage1 is my limit... I've done 73mph GPS and it's OK for me don't wanna go faster! I'm more looking in acceleration than top speed...
