    2004 FX HO Cruiser Pilot Outlet

    What should the output on this pilot outlook look like? I'm new to this ski and my old 1999 xlt760 produced a steady stream and this one is a bit sporadic out the port side. I've not see anything out the starboard side. What is normal for this ski?

    Thanks...

    Its sporadic till you get up to speed, once on plane it should be a steady stream. Are you having cooling issues??

    No, no cooling issues that I've noted. I've only been out twice on it. Being that the outlet shoots straight down I can't really see it. When I flushed it in the driveway it would come out sporadically until I increased the rpm's significantly. It took a couple of minutes initially before anything came out. I guess I'm just used to seeing how it works on my older xlt760 with it's steady stream at all rpm's.

    That just means your thermostat is working properly.

    Oh, so I assume when it's fully warmed up the thermostat opens allowing more water flow through the outlet?

    Have you replaced the impeller housing on this ski yet?

    No. Like I mentioned, I just got this ski. Is that something that should be normally replaced over a specific time? I'd like to replace all the normal maintenance items that should be done on a time schedule so I'll know I'm at zero time.
