    white smoke or black smoke? white smoke is just condensation working its way out. black smoke could be bad.

    IF the ski had been winterized or lubed by foogging injection it will blow white smoke the first time you start it up.

    I rode my P=X 2 weeks ago and today ( for other reasons ) I finally flushed the ski.

    It was blowing white steam / smoke like crazy. I was worried too because I sucked up some huge rocks, ruined the prop and veins blah blah...........

    I took the rocks out, bolted up the pump just to flush it and the white steam / smoke had me concerned as well. I chalked it up to either ride plate steam, or fuel stabilizer burn off............

    OR... just a super bent prop........... Sounds like this is normal. Good to hear.

    If you suspect a leaking intercooler, just bypass the inlet & outlet water hoses and take it for a ride. If the white smoke (steam) goes away you will know for sure. If you presure test it, pull the IC, block outlet, apply air or water pressure and check for leaks. If you use air, put IC in a bucket of water and look for air bubbles. If you use water, look for drips out of the IC... Ron
