    Quick Question

    How long can I run a '01 GP 1200R on the water hose adapter before hurting the ski. I know the manual says for just a few minutes, but you know how manuals are. Just wanted some real world experiance. thanks ahead!

    The adapter runs water to the engine...but there is not enough water flowing over the pump to keep the bearings cool. I would limit it to 5 minutes....if it were my ski.

    Where the hose goes in to the block is where I conect a hose. I have one just the right sized. That way all the water is going in to the motor. I ran my BIG BLOCK at a idle for 15 min for a part of the first break in. Now the bearings in th pump are now getting cooled? so I I would idle only.
