Thread: BOV question
02-14-2008, 09:58 AM #1
I have been reading for a while, never posted. Thanks everyone for all the info, Skip, you especially. Anyway, I have two 250's so that mean two of everything. I have ride plates, 1 degree wedges, block off's, pump seal kits, bypass upgrades....
when I was doing the BOV adjustment, I noticed some surface rusting on the internal spring, is this or could this be a problem?
I'm posting a few pictures of some very minor upgrades I did unrelated although the pop up cleats were a task....I know....gay ...right....shrugs, they work well.

Pop up cleats
I've been wanting to put cleats on my Ultra too. Those look great!
How did you do it? Did you just drill through inner liner? I assume you
used a backing plate?
I saw the 2008 Yamaha at Riva the other day. They had pop up cleats
on it too, nice ones with a Yamaha logo. Elliptical in shape, did not stay
up, just pull up and put line on it.
Where did you get those cleats you used? Price?

I didn't "picture document" the process when I did it but I will put together a a post with picures of parts and get it posted. Overtons has the cleats, their about $18 each. yes, drilled through the hull and liner and used the cover plate from the pisser to cover my interior hole.....details to follow if you all want. This should be in projects then.......not performance.

Those cleats look great. I have been thinking about doing the same thing. Did you mount any on the back of the ski?
I'm kinda tired of wraping a rope around the steering to tie mine off

no, I just use the cleat on the rear behind the seat. Overtons has wrap around fenders that work really well.

MKaman, Sorry for Hi-jack....and welcome to the GreenHulk!!
I did cleats on my ski, I used a Accon pop-up cleat, $30 bucks a piece on ebay. It is easy to reach and all you have to do is push the button and it pops-up. Mike

Any new tricks besides the pop up cleats?

Mike, they look nice and easy to reach and clean, that is something that is important, clean, like it was always there and meant to be there. My next project after the mods are amplified waterproof speakers to run off an ipod that cranks loud. speakers have to cut in and mount like they are from the factory...I have a few ideas, have to go see the A/V wholesaler tomorrow.

Pop Up Cleats
All of you guys have done a nice job with these pop up cleats. I never thought of that even though I have found myself many times, face down in seagull droppings, trying to clip a hook onto the bobbing bow eye! I should have known there was a better way! A couple of times when I docked up to a friends boat, I either wrapped line around steering column (which can toast the mirror in a heartbeat when ski rocks in a boat wake) or clipped onto rear U bolts. One time we had drifted too close too shore and my friend had to start boat to crawl back out another 100yds. Towing ski backwards at any speed is not a good idea! I watched in horror as my poor Ultra almost flipped at less than 5mph. Thats one move I never tried again.
Supp: MKaman, how did you mount the Orion cannister?
