    Question BOV Fitt 1 or not???

    Hi all im fitting a external i/c to my RXP. Wat are your views on blow off valves, would you fitt one or not. I have read mixed views on this subject. Im aware of the benefits concerning wear to the clutch washers, but was wondering if there were any other major pro's or con's to having 1 on my ski.
    Any help would be great thanks

    I have seen too many of them leak and cause problems.

    Also, the Rotax engineers didn't install BOV's on our skis for a reason. They are not needed. Just my opinion for what it's worth.

    Guys how about those people running b-kits and c-kits. Will it be needed with those set-ups since so much boost is present?.....

    I would say no since the supercharger/clutch set up remains the same, however I thing a BOV is recommended for the turbo set ups

    No way, even more reason not to run a BOV.

    Our superchargers have a clutch. No need for a BOV.
