    Ultra Air Intake(s)?

    I know this may be a dumb question, but...The manual says to avoid spraying water into the air intake in the bow while washing. But are there also 2 air intakes under the rear seat? I may have got some water splashed down there when I was hosing her down and I'm wondering if I screwed up.

    The rear vents are required by the USCG to rid the lower engine compartment of a possible accumulation of explosive gasoline vapors. The vapors are heavier than air and settle at the lowest level in an enclosed space.

    I was wondering the same thing. Thanks Richard. My Kawi tech here did modify my air hose after the air box and drilled a small whole just enough to get a lube spray straw through and I lube after every ride as I ride in only salt water. Since I have been doing this, the little pink overflow thingy on the bottom of airbox has not accumulated any water. Oh yeah I now have close to 20 hrs on ski!!! Just wondering if anyone one else has done this mod. Tech stated that it would keep the supercharger lubed and less suseptible to salt corrosion.
