Groco Strainer & SHO
Installed a strainer on The SHO, first surprise was the water line was 5/8 not 3/4. So after a quick trip to the local home depot to get some 5/8 barb to 3/4 mip elbows & about 6 ' of heater hose. The install went very easy. There is only about 10" of OEM hose from the inlet barb off the pump. It connects to the fitting that includes the flush adapter & the the split where it sends water to the engine & intercooler. I completely removed this hose. You then need 2 pieces of hose almost 3' each. The water flow through the strainer flows from left to right in the photo, the hoses route in an x pattern to put less of a strain on the hose. I used Pure poly-Urethane to mount the bracket to the side of the engine bay, I use this at work all the time & is one of the strongest adhesives I've found that is easy to work with.

When are we going to ride? I want to check out your ski and maybe have a friendly race. Nice strainer installed. I hear I should do the same thing on my RXP-X.
