    If there is no spring and ball, then it is just a nice shiny piece in your tubing. You can run it, but you are not getting the advantages that the valve provides. With the ball and spring, it controls the amount of water that goes into your waterbox when idling, so that when you gun it, there isnt a bunch of water in the waterbox that it has to kick out.

    Coolant upgrade

    Polaris had a Service Bulletin to remove the spring and ball. Do not put it back in run it without it or even better yet remove the complete valve.

    Any questions PM me [email protected]

    I'm curious. Did the Bulletin say why?

    The reason why they had the bulletin to remove it was because the valve came with a rubber ball type stop which will stick in place if you let the ski sit to long. Thus when you go to ride it, no water gets to the stinger and you'll have problems. The fix was to get the metal type ball that the jet works valve now uses. If you run your ski often than you really don't have to worry about it. Just to be safe, I rub a thin layer of grease on the rubber ball so it keeps it from sticking in place. I would just get a hold of Jet Works and have them send you the right ball type and use the valve.
