    My squirter isn't squirting ;-(

    Dumb questions I know:

    What do you call that hole in the rear deck where the FX HO squirts a water jet up into the air ?

    Aside from identifying my location, is there any other reason for this feature ? (LOL- have fun with that)

    Is it prone to blockage, or am I just lucky ?

    Is there a benefit to permanantly plugging it ?

    Are there laws that require it ?

    I had to say it...... That sure sounds like a personal problem and they sell pills for that.....


    Seriously, if your pisser isn't working, the hose clamp probably fell off.

    They usually do not get blocked up,

    you can JB weld the opening, take off the hose, and grind the little nub in the nozzle flush to the nozzle.

    No laws about it. It is a Yamaha safety feature......

    jb weld works with anything. It does come in different forms. You want the one that comes in 2 tube that you can mix together. After taking off your nozzle you can duct tape the inside so it doesn't spill through. Then just mix some jb weld up and pour it in the top of the fitting and fill to the top. Then just let dry. After dried peel the tape off and it'll alredy be smooth.

    It is a visibility spout. Safety feature Yamaha put on their PWC.
    You can plug it with JB WELD like mentioned, it won't hurt anything.
