    intake noise

    Hi guys i have got a ??, when i shut my throttle off or come un-hooked i am getting a chirping noise come up the intake, sounds almost like a turbo blowing off bit like a rally car sounds. I have heard this on youtube on other skis but was wondering is this my clutch doing too much work and therfore going to wear down my metals alot faster?? Any thoughts? R88

    Question

    Jerry i just found a thread that sorta helped out, i was looking for the wrong thing hence the new thread. The noise seems to be associated with the ex ic, and you said that it was normal. What i want to know is if because of the ex ic I am going to wear my washers faster than normal?? Or is it just that i can hear the noise because of the ex ic. I ride in the sea 100% and it is never flat so the clutch has a lot of work to do on my ski and I dont want to have to put a new set of washers in each season to keep the correct slip moment. Would a blow off valve help to save my washers??? Thanks R88

    you just hear the noise more, that is your clutch washers working
    try not to unhook so much, get a RIVA grate , maybe its got more of a scoop to it??
    and feather the throttle when you are unhooking to ease the amount of slippage when the pump unhooks /rehooks

Thanks for your reply but what i really wnt to know is if i fitt a Good blow off vave not a cheap 1, will this help my washers to last longer?? Thanks again R88
