    Blocking the blowoff valve

    I really just don't understand why so many want to block off a safety valve (blow off valve) that's designed to do absolutely nothing unless there is an overpressure situation.

    What gives?

    Why don't peeps test the damn thing first to see if it leaks and adjust first? It's not that hard!

    What happens if your relief valve hose pops off, or you knock it off then go ride? It happened to mrsexy for christ sake.

    Why am i so flipped out? I care, and don't want to hear some rec rider has expensive repair from following to close to the race crowd or does not really understand how the heck it works.

    Don't fix it if it ain't broke. But you won't know it's broke unless you test it!!!

    Question

    So....What`s it test out at...?????
    Come on...Give me some specs...Should I even bother with it.
    If it`s set above 11.4 it`s a useless mod.
    What did yours open at.....Inquiring minds need to know....
    I agree with you statement. Why block it off. It`s just a safety valve.

    If it's leaking, would you replace it or block it off?

    funny you said this . a guy i ride with somtimes is absolutely clueless when it comes to pwc

    we both ride 07 ultra 250's but it seemed he got lucky and got a faster one then i did . when i had the pump wedge and he didnt (he was still bone stock) we raced and it was extremly close i would barely beat him and if i did i only had him by maybe a few tenths of a mile an hour ,
    and somtimes it was a tie

    at that time i was reading the bov adjustment post and i was thinking i wasnt getting full boost so i ordered the r&d boost gauge
    adapter

    my friend also read about the bov and insisted he was going to modify his and i should modify mine too. i told him his machine was running great and not to touch it until he put a gauge on it . i too wasnt going to mess with it until i got to see what the boost gauge said .when i got the boost gauge i realized i WAS getting full boost

    my clueless friend went ahead and "tightened his bov all the way down" and then rode it and reported back to me on how his machine felt so much faster and felt like it was pulling so hard . he said wait till this weekened i will blow right past you

    well the weekend came and we lined up the boats and i beat him by 15 boat lengths . now the poor fool has been taking off the bov and re adjusting it trying to "get it back to stock" i think when he tightend it all the way down he made it leak . now he is too stubborn and cheap to buy a new one

    Why dont you help him out?

    Follow the BOV instruction closely. Use the pictures as a comparison.

    i do try to help him out


    i call him a fool because i spend hours on the phone with him trying to help him and he tells me "i dont know anything about pwc and everything i do know i read on the internet"
    he thinks researching things on the internet is stupid .

    yes i call him a fool . you would have to know the guy to understand why . whenever you give him advice he tells you that your wrong and his way is best .funny thing is he is almost always wrong and the results prove it .

    i hate to break it to you skip but not everyone is smart and rational , there are some fools out there and this guy is one of them
