    Yamaha visibility spout

    I know everyone disconnects the visibility spout on the yamaha's because of looks but i'm just curious does it help performance in anyway or does it hurt performance in anyway??

    Just for looks and to not spray others. There is no gain performance wise.

    Yea, that is true. But I would say the syphon is what gives you the gain not the spout. Then again not everyone gets a gain.


    Lets just say I have both deleted on my ski.

    You get a gain if you machine the inside of the nozzle and remove the raised area that directs the water out of the visibility spout.

    You get further gains if you remove the syphon tube and fill in the area.
