    Question Educate me!

    Okay, so after being around skis for about a year now my opinion is that iBR is probably the greatest thing SeaDoo has ever put on a ski. So why do some guys "remove" it? Seems like even if you don't use it, it's not bothering anything...

    The exhaust cooling water has to go through the IBR component first. Sometimes the IBR leaks and sinks the boat. It's also an $1100 part. And some intense riders want to remove the weight and cooling threat if it fails.

    I don't see no exhaust cooling water going through either of mine.

    Okay, so I guess I need even more education. I was under the impression that when using the "B" part of the iBR, it would just bring the reverse bucket down and give some throttle to oppose the forward motion as detected by the GPS. I wouldn't have thought that there were any parts that needed to be cooled and hence be in a position to sink the boat.

    Are you sure you're not talking about the carbon seal?

    Hey, Troy! It was nice to meet you last weekend.

    Nice meeting you also.
    It is my understanding that when the brake is applied, the bucket comes down and then a small amount of throttle is applied by the "I" part of the system.
    Also, I do believe that the IBR system is all electrical, no water is used to cool it or other wise. I also have never heard of a ski sinking due to IBR failure.
    I do know this. I LOVE IT.
