    Flushing 2013 FZS SHO

    My buddy ran his ski in a little salt water for the first time yesterday and is worried about salt water sitting in his intercooler. He claims that when he flushes his ski that it only flushes the exhaust system and engine cooling system bacause he doesn't see water comming out of his IC pisser. Can one of the Yamaha pros answer this and what all gets flushed when running it on the hose? Thanks.

    If you crimp the hose slightly going to your engine in front of the y connector while running you will see water coming out of the intercooler hose and you will have water also coming out of the oil cooler line.

    You don't see the water coming out of the intercooler because the hose doesnt have enough water pressure. Jim is right about crimping the line in the ski.

    So do you think turning up the water pressure on the hose will help or will it not come out the pisser without crimping off the Y?

    I have quite high water pressure at home and it still didn't flow out of the intercooler pisser on my SHO unless I put a finger over the engine side outlet, which I did instead of crimping the hose (just alternated every few seconds to not let engine get hot).

    Different on the SVHO, both sides flow easily...

    Used a Y off a Honda Aquatrax ski it has a ball check that still allows system to drain but helps direct water into motor and not let much out strainer

    I tried putting my finger over the engine outlet....still nothing came out.

    Water goes to least resistance so that will be out the strainer on the pump.......some does go through motor but most out strainer

    Mmmm... It didn't flow with massive pressure definitely passed thru... must be more of a difference than I thought between FX & FZ... May have to move to other options..
