    2007 Speedster 150 what hose to clamp when towing?

    I looked at the manual and I swear the hose that it shows is not present in the engine compartment. It shows a hose coming out of the bottom where the fiberglass intake is but there is not hose there! The dealer's mechanic pointed to a hose that was going into the metal pipe(sorry I am nb to what is what. Here are some photos the first is the manual and the rest are pics of the engine compartment with where the mechanic said to clamp off. Can anyone verify if this is correct?

    It should be the hose that is coming directly from the pump.

    your mechanic's an idiot.

    actually i see now how you were confused by the manual, it does sorta look like its pointing to that "ICS" cable, it's actually reffering to the hose next to it on the right. Just be glad your boat doesn have the ICS system, its pure junk.

    normally the hose that you clamp off has a red band around it so you can easily identify it

    The funny thing was that he did point to another hose but not sure which one then he said oh no! its this one that needs to be clamped and when I read the manual it looked different that is why I asked on this forum.

    Thanks for the help!
