    by moving it outside do you mean you drilled a whole ? or just used a longer hose ? i though about drilling it seadoo style but i'd rather not mess up with the hull

    anyone try a little Teflon tape on the adapter nozzle? I've always just let it leak, was never bad enough to bother me.

    The reducer in the cooling system puts a big load on the fitting. You have 35-50 psi in your hose but the water cooling line tapers to less then a pencil. If you are experiencing a leak, it's most likely because you have your water turned on full blast. Turn it down to 50% and see what happenes...

    I do have the water turned on full blast I didn't know I wasn't supposed to. There is no harm i guess in doing that ? there still enough water flowing through ?

    We don't flush our skis. My partner does occasionally, but I only hook to the hose if Im running it longer then 10 15 seconds for testing.. But this is what I do, on the off chance I did flush the ski.. Its not that you aren't "supposed to" turn the pressure down and the manual def doesn't say you should. But think about it, if the pressurized fitting is leaking, then simply lower the pressure. There is still more then enough water flowing through to cool the motor. The stock hose is long enough, but I lengthened mine a foot or so with some clear tubing and the flush lines routed it out the back.
