    drying-up suspension skis after a ride ?

    I've always used shop-vac after every ride to suck up the water in the hull, with the skis that have suspension you can't see anything without removing the battery cover and storage on the back, battery cover is easy enough but the storage one would not be convenient.

    I haven't really looked on over before but would it be possible to either mount a small fan somewhere inside that stayed there. Then when done riding, you open the hatches and plug in the fan?
    Or mount an external fan unit that dropped onto the battery hatch after your ride. Something like a F1 car when they pull into the garage after time trials.

    well depending how much water is in the hull it might take a long time for the fan to do the job and the worse thing is that you cant even see if there is any water in this skis, they are becoming like cars you cant put your hands any where.

    Why do you have so much water in your hull?

    I don't get a drop of water in my as260. It's crazy compared to my other skis that always get water in them

    I always rinse down my engine bay and wet/dry out remaining water. All part of thorough post ride maintenance.

    That's because you own a VXR have you seen a GTX S 155 ? it's like the engine of luxury car looks beautiful but nothing to be seen. It takes me 2-3min on my MR-1 FX HO to dry it up.
