    Kanaflex WITHOUT a filter?

    Thinking of trying this setup, securing the end of the hose under the steering assembly, without a cleaner.
    Has anyone tried this in heavy surf? Any issues with water ingestion?

    just doo it

    you will be just fine, ran this set-up last season with eriks help and no issues. you should pick up rpm by removing the filter also!

    No Probs

    I run this setup offshore. Haven't run in heavy surf yet, but 3-4 chop no problems. Filter seems like a waste if end is tucked up in the front.

    I've been running this setup for 2 yrs in the ocean & I ride it hard with NO water ingestion what so ever!
    pic 1 is how I run it now.

    Pic 2 is what I ran for about a month & then decided I wanted ALL fresh air & not a mix of hot & cold so I went with pic 1.

    Several people have measured RPM with and without a filter and note little or no change. I would not recommend it personally because something in the engine compartment could easily cause your charger to become an extremely expensive paper weight. Any plastic, glue, debris etc.. @ 50,000 RPM = byebye. It's not worth the risk to me! I would recommend ou812's setup though. I have seen it work perfect on a couple different skis and it will block debris.
