No I leave it in the garage and just slide it on and off when I need to flushDo you just leave it dangling out like that while riding?
No problems at all it's just about 10 sec more work them the $30 quick flush kit cause u have to push it on the flush connectionSo has this custom system worked perfectly well. Any problems that you have encountered or things you need to look out for?
Your going to have more repairs if you listen to whoever told you that flushing isnt necessary in brackish water. The Spark uses closed loop cooling for the motor but the exhaust absolutely should be flushed after riding in brackish water.We were told since we ride in Brackish water, we did not need a flush kit but since the recalls, we decided since they were both in the shop anyway, to get flush kits put on both!
Don;t want a letter telling us they now need them or damage done because we were told they don;t need flushing!
Seems like there are a lot of issues that are cropping up as more people put more hours on the Spark so we are being aggressive of trying to think of everything we can do in one visit to the repair shop!
YesIs it ok to use full water pressure when flushing?
brackish water still has salt in it, not as much as salt water but salt is still very corrosive, don't forget to rinse the pump components at the back and the aluminum engine mounts under your ski also, if you are running in fresh water that is clean you really don't need to flush, but if there is debris in the water or if you run near sand bars it still is a good idea, I usually don't flush because the water I run in is pretty clean, but I still flush if I am going from one body of water to another to prevent the spread of invasive plants and organisms!From TK423 on this thread:

I agree. many here where I ride were shocked to hear I was told I did not need to flush!
Maybe I don't need to but it can not hurt and again SAFETY first, then making sure we don't do something stupid to cause more repairs to be done to our BRAND NEW SKIS!
Thank goodness for the people on here who know their stuff and care about other riders safety and good maintenance to keep the skis on the water and out of the repair shop!
