    Yamaha FX HO 2015 - disabling pisser/gay spray!?

    Question from a newbie about disabling the pisser/gay spray on my 2015 FX HO. Keep reading, lots of posts on this topic I know, but I can't find anything related to my model/year of ski, so please help

    I have a chilly bin/cooler semi-permanently mounted on the back of my ski, so the pisser/gay spray is never going to be useful. I also want to run a transducer cable through the hole in the deck, so have two good reasons for wanting rid of it.

    Can I just disconnect the pisser/gay spray and leave the hose flapping in the wind? I'm concerned that it will interfere with the reverse gate. If I disconnect it, does it have to be blocked off in some way, or is it OK to leave it open?

    Also, if anyone can be bothered, what is the correct name for the pisser/gay spray?

    Thanks!

    I disconnected mine from the deck and cut the tube a little shorter and left it. Been like this for 2 years. Not one issue. We pack coolers on the back of my Yamaha as well. Also did this with my old '05 FXHO and had no issues. It's just a visibility thing and I hate it!

    Just pull the hose off completely and you're done. No need to block it off.

    Visibility spout.

    While you're at it, remove the rubber shroud over the pump. You'll have better access for cleaning and maintaining the pump.

    what about a 90 elbow hose so it doesn't shoot straight up on the bottom of the deck?

    Yamaha calls it a Visibiliy Spout.

    It is not a model specific thing to disable.

    Here is how I did mine;
    Yamaha Visibility Spout - block off method using 1/8" NPT plug

    I wanted it permanently blocked in a tidy manner. I also plugged the deck fitting so wave action did not create little water spouts on the rear deck.




    If you would prefer being able to turn it off and on, apparently a PEX plastic inline ball valve fits the factory hose. Cut the hose and splice in the ball valve, with two hose clamps.




    Not my video, but understandable enough.
