    310 / 300 Intercooler Maintenance

    I have 70 hours on 310. I have done all the routine inspections / maintenance so far; the Ski runs super and has been great in all aspects.

    I have not touched the Intercooler; The Manual does not mention any maintenance to the Intercooler. The oil level does not change (up or down). Are there any tell tale signs that would indicate the Intercooler needs a cleaning? Thanks. JB

    Clean it once JB now and maybe once a year after that. ...
    nothing more than a preventative step to maintain good engine rpm...

    You can pull one of your intercooler hoses off to inspect the inside of the hose to see if it is "oil coated" - Probably recommend the one going to the Throttle Body.

    Takes an hour or less to clean that intercooler - go at it JB.

    Congrats on your 70 hour - free of problems - interval !!!

    I just clocked 30 hours last week and did the exhaust / Inter-cooler check up.
    I was surprised that the Inter-cooler was oil free....

    I have not checked Intercooler yet Olomana. I have been on my motorcycles more lately so my efforts have been there. Your Intercooler looks great! I can't remember, is that Intercooler from a 300 or 310? JB

    its not a 100% fix but much better, just done mine at over 35hrs and it was lightly oiled and needed doing.

    Ah ha. So this must be the primary reason why all Ultras should be using the latest catch can? JB

    no not a must but it does make a difference. i would say cuts cleaning times requirements to double on the earlier.
