    1997 Wave Venture 1100 Spark Arrestor Screens/Performance?

    I have a rebuilt 1100 and been wondering if the spark arrestor screens are really necessary and if people are running without them to get a little more power?

    I realize some will always air on the side of caution and never tell me to run without them or I will blow up in a ball of flame but my question is, are people running without these to get more power? They seem really restrictive.

    I have no problem tuning my carbs to adjust for the flow difference.

    are you talking about aftermarket F/As vs open carbs? or stock airbox minus the screens?

    yes the screens are restrictive and you can remove them, but you will be adding more air, so adjust mixture accordingly

    And take the seat off to vent it or you WILL separate the decks along with your legs and torso.

    This is what I was talking about... Armageddon! Please...

    I ran the ski without the screens and it ran much stronger, better throttle response everything once I dialed the carbs in. Well worth it in my opinion.

    I'm not one to have fuel rolling around in the hull of my boat. Everything is working fine and all vent lines, etc, are in tact. Even if there was a backfire there is no fuel or fume source to ignite to cause some catastrophic event. And, if the case was different and I did have fuel rolling around in the hull and by chance the ski backfired, I'm not sure the "screens" would make any difference anyway...
