    update on hose issue

    ok i have a few pics, cant really tell where its at, but its the hose directly underneath the coolant tank, i was told it was the inlet to the supercharger, i would recommend upgrading the clamp asap, cause gulf coast has tightned down on the normal one goood and its still blowin off like nobodies business. and there are a few pics of my very un-professional work on fillin the ride plate holes, updates to follow!!

    So I'm not quite getting it. I know there's been a problem with hoses either being loose or regardless blowing off. I'm not sure what these pics represent. A replacement clamp? Or is that the stock clamp in the 3rd pic and the last, is that the hose in question? Just wasn't too clear on what we're supposed to be doing as the best fix for this problem.

    the clamps that come on the ski are just the normal plain jane hose clamps, the one in the 3rd and 4th pics are of the stock clamps. i bought at the local hardware store, NOT at a home depot or lowes
    , cause all they had were the same weaker ones, a wider, thicker, steel clamp. The stock ones can only be tightened so much before they start breaking those metal teeth things. With the more durable ones, you can tighten down basically as hard as you can and that will fix the problem. I have the new ones on, and got on it for a few runs, and didnt blow it off as of now, thats the only fix i can think of, since the pipe that the hose goes on to is smooth, and doesnt have a lip on it to help secure the hose to it, im not sure why sea-doo did that

    I tightened the worm gear clamps before I went out riding for the first time. After riding for two times, I saw water around the waterbox clamps. I took the hoses off to find out what was going on. I found out that even with the worm gear hose clamps tightened, the waterbox would twist and turn pretty freely. This was even with the bungy cord around the waterbox. I took Franko's advice and changed out all the worm gear hose clamps to T-Bolts. The waterbox does not move at all.

    I noticed the exact same thing. With the T-bolt clamps, all the slop is gone. I only have 2 hours on the ski with the T-bolt clamps, so I don't know if this is the fix yet. But it is certainly better than it was with the worm drive clamps.

    And the SC actually touches the waterbox. With engine movement, I'm sure the SC pushes the waterbox and contributes to its movement and hence exacerbates the hose problem.
