    This is what the trunk and engine shell looks like popped on an iS ski

    Just thought Id put these up for other iS owners. Didn't see many pics like it. Better step by step instructions are needed (if not up already somewhere).


    You can see here how the front of the moving deck is tilted down inside the bow.

    This gives you access to remove the shell that covers the engine (shown removed here)

    Closer view. The lower part of the air box (seen here, black square) can be removed giving you access to the throttle body/super charger and the rear of the engine.

    If I hadn't have sunk so much time n money into my suspension ski, it would be long gone by now. It is crazy, either you have to lift the trunk or, as I have now, split it in two halves FFS!!

    Major throttle body design flaw on these skis when riding in salt water that causes you to have to split it...only way to get to it. Seems like most people it happens too right at the 3 year mark from what I gather.

    I was thinking that too but I think you need to pull the shell to get to that super charger inlet A and B Im not sure it would properly lubricate it. I had to remove the TB, take it apart and lube 3 places that I don't think fogging would get to. Saw one guy on here actually rigged up a 1/4" tube to the throttle body that he sprays oil into from under the seat without taking anything apart. Duh BRP.
