    Caution - Flush hose crimp loose

    Wanted to give a warning about the flush hose connector.
    I maintain my skis to the extreme and every time I came back I noticed water salt deposit all over waterbox and in the rear of the ski. I would clean it, spray it, but it was back after every ride. I took the baffles and exhaust hoses out for inspection. They all looked good and saw no problems.

    After looking the area over with what it could be, I saw the flush hose above this area and remember a friend flooding his FZR because the hose going to the flush port came off. Sure enough mine was loose. With a slight tug it came right off!!! This also explained why when I flushed my ski, I had water spraying everywhere. I checked it and the same thing! I put a hose clamp on and should be good to go. I have not tested it yet, but I am sure this is the problem.
