Found this hose disconnected.
After some advice on a second hand RXP X 260 I just picked up. Was having a look around in the engine bay and found an oil breather hose disconnected. As seen in the pic. The end where the arrow is pointing was hanging loose.
Question is, I obviously don't know how long its been like this, so is there any possible damage occurred or anything else I should check further?

the only damage could come from something getting in the intake hose
even water is not good for the motor and enough can seriously damage the motor

If it were mine, I would remove large elbow that attaches to SC and with a light and mirror, look in to view the SC wheel. If water had been getting in there over time, the impeller will look crusty. That hose fits onto the fitting pretty tight so I can't see how this just popped-off.
Does it have the stock airbox above the gas tank and does it appear untouched?
How many hours on ski and did owner say if the SC was rebuilt?

Yeah all the air box etc is stock.
it does not take that much force to remove the plastic bung from the rubber elbow.
will take it off at the weekend and have a look at the sc wheel, presume it should look clean and not corroded in anyway?
i doubt from the height of the hole etc much water would have ever entered the engine.

My bet is someone took it off while they were checking out the SC. Just forgot to put it back on. Maybe someone looking before they bought?

Be glad it was that, I also recently got my PX and while I was cleaning the engine compartment the left bailer hose that is right after the IBR module came off, What a PITA to put a clamp on that sucker...

Same thing happened to me , where it fits into the big hose it had softened. The bigger hose was replaced and doesnt pop out anymore.
