    Visibility spout inlet

    What is the easiest way to get rid of the visibility spout? I have read that some just re route the house and zip tie it off and some jb weld the inlet and remove the hose all together. Which way is most effecient?

    Thanks

    i cut off the nipple that the hose clamps to and put Jb weld in the hole. when my ski was apart i also used a die grinder to smooth off the hump in the nozzle that picks up that water.

    the easiest method would be to aquire an 1/8thnpt pipe plug, preferably chrome or alum, or stainless that is allen socket type.

    you could either tap the hole or warm up the pipe plug with heat gun or lighter and thread into hole a little at a time until flush.


    most of us have removed the hose and either fitted a bolt in the hose or filled with JB weld, or grinded down the part on the nozzle and tapped for 1/8, there are quite a few ways...

    but easiest is what I described...

    Can you just zip tie the hose shooting out towards the back? What is the reason to blocking it off?

    how is it easier to tap a hole and find the right threads to fit over filling it with JB weld?
    have you lost your marbles PR?

    i would say they were aiming on purpose. I'd bet 3/4 people who have done anything to their ski's have removed this spout. how .

    hahahahaha, it was easy man! I had a plug kicking around and just threaded it into the soft plastic, if he wants to re-open the spout simply un screw it...


    dood when you find my marbles, please send them to me!

    the absolute easiest way to remove it is to just remove the hose and let the water spray under the deck. if you are looking for more speed out of the deal, then jb weld the nozzle and grind the hump.
