    Flame Arrestor Removal on a T-X 260

    I just received a Riva Flame Arrestor Removal Kit from my in laws as a gift..

    has anyone removed the flame arrestor without taking the intake completely off the ski?

    there is plenty of room to get a cordless in there and there seems to be a "divot" where you need to drill out right in the center to line the bit up.

    my question is..
    do absolutely need to remove the intake?
    or
    Can I just drill it out and vacuum it out while still in place?

    That thought crossed my mind as well when I was looking at mine the other day...but your really want to get it right in the center and square. It's not that big a deal to take it off and do it right.

    You NEED to remove it so that you can thoroughly clean all the small plastic shavings out of the manifold. Do you really want to take the chance and get that shit in your valves, injectors and pistons??

    My flame arrestor was pretty grungy...can only imagine how clogged up the one is on my TX260 4 years old

    Only takes a few minutes to pull the manifold. Not worth the hassle of doing it on the ski, as well as the risk of shit in your motor.
