    s/c lubrication

    i have re routed the hoses and now the oil overspill and vapor no longer enter my air intake. but i still want to make sure that the paddles inside the s/c are still lubed for protection. What should i spray in the intake to lube the s/c paddles? thank you

    I don't know your situation but removing the hose from the oil separator to the intake tube is not a real good idea for rec riding. ......IMO......If you must i think its yamaha that sells a good fogging spray oil.

    Use fogging oil. I take the pipe off to the intercooler when I do it, so it does not clog up the intercooler.

    Why would you want to remove the top line from the catch can from venting into the intake track??

    It not only servers a purpose to lube the supercharger, but also plays a very big part in creating a slight low pressure in the crankcase ventilation system, and has been proven to reduce chances of , here we go again GIO.

    I say dont be silly reconnect it!!!!! it DOES NOT decrease performance, but WILL improve survival chances on salty water,

    Yes fogging is good to da anyways as a extra step in general maintance / storage .exspecially if your ski is stored in high humidity shed etc

    any ways just my

    you are taking away the suction from the intake to the catch can.

    air intake

    i am using my r-rated intake, and besides the stuff that comes out of my can hose is yellow gunky stuff that sometimes seperates into layers. i have been running a modified seadoo can set up, guess i could run a hose to the intake stake off the can filter
