    OUCH i hate getting stuck out on our lake, had it happen to me a couple times, but theres always someone to tow you in. Breaking down out in the middle of nowhere would stuck esp. if you were alone.
    Would you notice excessive wear on the belt before this break would occur just thinking about another thing to add to my pre-riding checklist.

    look at the belts for cracks in the grooves bottom side, and also the top side. burp the start and look some more. do this a few times.
    I forget who posted but some said to disconnect something, and you should be able to get a few more MPH when your belt is broken. Maybe they can chime in.

    disconnect air intake hose at the throttlebody it will allow the motor to breath free

    if you read the post its what you can do if your s/c belt breaks leaving you stuck on the water it allows your motor to run without the s/c like a normal aspirated lx. or would you rather try and signal someone for a tow?

    tell you wot Corey, I'll give you a race with no blower heheheh

    Disconnecting the hose is the best way to get home with some good speed and safetly, as some times when coming in with waves you will need that extra power removing the hose will give!!

    as for not being good for the engine

    their is NO difference on the intake quality than if the blower was connected!!!!!!

    if you remove the hose between the charger output too the cooler

    you will still have some protection to stop small bird's getting caught in the throttle blade!

    At the end of the day just remove 1 clamp, and ride home with dignity and on have a ULTRA 140 ish

    or get towed and fill the engine with water , unless you carry pipe clamps to clamp off water inlets
