Groco Intercooler Strainer
Is this part a must have? I do go near beach areas often. I am assuming it keeps sand from the intercooler obviously. Where does it install, does anyone have a pic of the location??

YES! Just get about 2 ft of 3/4 heater hose to go from pump bulkhead to the inlet side of the strainer and use the stock hose on the other side.

Thanks! A picture is worth a million words
How bout the deep fuel pickup. Should I order or do the homemade version I have seen on here? I dont mind buying it if it makes it easier and faster to install.
How do you get to the top of the tank. Looks like removing the glove box? anyone have pics of this procedure? Sorry about the newbie questions, I have read the FAQs Tech section and did not see it anywhere. When I refueled it only took 14 gallons so about 7 gallons was unused just like the manual says.

if you open up the stock intercooler the water flow ways are larger than the fitting on the pump . but that would help keep out sea weed. The kawasaki intercooler core dosnt have the cooling fins on the water flow sides it just like a car radiator

I had a sudden drop in cooling water discharge on my Ultra. Normally
at idle there is a flow, now it is just about stopped. If you hit the
throttle it flows, but not at same rate.
I ran in salt water and did not flush after one day of running. Was back
in salt the next and then fresh water flush.
Clogged cooling passages? Clogged hose? Clogged Intercooler?
Would running dishwasher detegent help? Maybe a radiator flush type
BTW - where does the cooling water enter? From one of those back
hoses above the pump? Or is it that fitting on the pump tunnel pointing down?

i only ride in salt.Many times i was very tired or in very remotes places to flush my Ultra.This ski is really hard core built,i had absolutely no problem with cooling.
Once, i opened my intercooler because i suspected some cloging from oil overfill but it was like new.NO sign of salt anywhere.If you decide to open it there is a small trick to re-use the old red o-rings.
