    Fresh air

    Hey guys just wanna make sure if it's ok to cut these hoses back. If I understand correctly it will help more free air in the hull. Am I correct? The ones under the rear seat. Guess I'm just bored lol. Cleaning everything up figured I'd ask

    Hoses are for if ski is upside down. Keeps point of entry for water, (instead of air) above upside down water line.
    An always at your own risk proposition. If you never, or have never had your ski upside down then you should be ok. Key word is should.

    I'm sure you knew that already. Many adjust the rear seat post so the seat is "Up" a bit when it latches and remove the hoses allowing the potential for more air flow, along with taking the panel off in the front under MFD allows more through the entire hull.

    Ya I figured. Thanks. Saw others did it. Wanted to double check. We do jump high and verticals and ride in the storms coming up the cost. Prolly shouldn't push it. I'll think about it. Never did roll ot over yet

    Adjusting the seat post is a myth!! Theres plenty of room there. I have removed the tubes but as mentioned above, the ski will fill with water instantly if it is ever rolled. Do at your own risk and peril

    I removed mine and yes engine heat is removed as could feel coming out if you were to stop the ski ...

    But like others have mentioned if you flip her you can certainly use that water path ...

    The type of riding you do Eric probably best to leave on...

    You can add Flow -rites or Frog Skinz Vents which do not allow water thru only air, Jerry sells the Flow rites.

    There are a few threads on skis that use them and where to install them ,mostly somewhere high on the top part of the hull as heat rises..

    Youll have to make a 2 inch hole somewhere...
