    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...

    On the hose it may be only a drop or two, or only water vapor coming out the port side depending on your water pressure. You won't see anything out of the starboard side on the hose unless you have lots of water pressure. The starboard side only opens up when the ski reaches a certain temperature, so you are usually riding it and don't see it happen. As long as the overheat alarm is not going off, you are probably OK. You can put the nose of the ski down, and clamp off the water inlet line if you want to put more water into the system on the hose. You loose a lot of water out of the inlet line on the hose.

    Thanks! All makes sense now.
