    Engine exhaust Flushing!

    Is there are problem with screwing a garden hose into the exhaust cooling pick up hose in the back of the ski?

    It seems easier, no clamp, no adapter, dont have to remove seats (no big deal).

    Noi issue at all. I do that as well. It is just a bit more difficult getting the hose on there when everything is dark in there........

    Go for it

    The Limited is the only ski in the lineup that has the under seat flush attatchment...personally I hate it...It is never secure seems to pop off.Best thing to do is get a metal quick connect and screw it on and leave it..Makes it so much easier than trying to twist the whole hose...

    I noticed that the first time I did it, now I dont even look...I let my hands do the looking for me...I just grab the inlet with my right hand, and hose in my left, mate them up, and ... um...screw it!

    Use one of those snap on quick disconnect fittings. The male end can stay screwed into the pump area flush hole. The female end is on the garden hose...helps to have one with an on-off lever on it. Easier to turn on water from there once engine is started than to have to run over to the hose faucet.

    Ive started using the flush in the back as opposed to the underseat one. Most of the water exited the rear flush opening when I used the underseat one. It seems like a better flush. What do guys think?

    The rear flush is the best way to go !!
