    Flushing & IR Holeshot KIT

    Is it okay to flush with an holeshot kit bolted on? (I have no freeflow.)


    If you have the flush connected, there goes no water in the waterbox, cause there is no pressure from the pump?!?
    Am i right?

    I don`t want melt anything.

    thanks

    Yes it is fine to flush your ski with the jetworks. Just blip your throttle everyonce and awhile to get a little water into the waterbox especially while you are idling for an extended time. But i haven't heard of anyone having issues while flushing their ski's. Most of your questions can be answered if you use the search button or look in the How To Sections.

    When you say flushing, I think this means you are in the driveway, not in the lake?

    If this is the case, you can blip that throttle all day, but if that intake grate is not submerged in water, you are not getting water thru the pump, to the dual cooling plate, to the Jetworks valve. The valve is the only water supply into the waterbox.

    Exhaust Flange

    The gasket in between the pipe and the exhaust flange is blocking the water that flowed into it. The water that enters the Waterbox now enters thru the Jetworks valve into the exhaust flange. Water that used to enter the pipe is now directed thru a pisser out the side of the ski, not thru the pipe via the exhaust flange.

    The exhaust flange now has its own supply, thru the dual cooling/pump strainer off of the pump.

    exactly what i mean,, i drive only in the sea and there`s no fresh water so i must flush it with the garden water.

    Would this be a problem?

    Flush

    You can install a T-fitting in the supply line of the flush connection to an on/off valve to a T-fitting between the Jetworks valve and exhaust flange, and use it during the flushing procedure. This is one way of getting around this. I think 02GPR had a post and picture of a similar setup for long idle periods. It would have worked the same way.

    You were correct in your first post.

    This is the first I'm hearing about this. I've always read its ok to flush the ski with the jetworks valve.
