    Hey Skip, breather pipe question or two...

    Rumor is there was a K-Tech for silicone in the breather pipe.

    1) My dealer claims they've seen nothing about it
    2) When you put on the R&D kit do you remove this factory breather pipe anyway?

    I was wondering about the silicone issue too. My dealer doesn't know about it either (actually they don't know much about skis or anything really, ha ha - thats what happens when the owner comes from the used car industry i suppose)

    My dealer or I have not heard of this memo or Tech Update.

    The breather does stay in place.

    I have access to all K-Tech as soon as they come out and have seen nothing yet but it may be in a up-coming issue. The information may be at Kawi but yet to hit the K-Tech publication.

    I have seen the memo and read it. Basically, the breather hole my be clogged with silicone. Check and clean if it is.

    When I took my ski back for service for the second time (cavitation, gas in oil, smoking, rough idiling) on 9-18-07, the tech said he had read the K-teck memo on this and said it could of cause some of my problems. Still haven't heard back from him. Of course, this was literally hours before the R & D kit came out.

    113 post is all I remember. If you have seen other maybe it was deleted because it was part of another oil thread.

    If you check this and find that yours is blocked, be carefull with the silicone when you reinstall the vent tube. It looks like they put too much on the flange at the base of the tube to begin with so be carefull not to repeat the same thing the Kawi factory did.
