    Air inlet

    Curious here. I looked over this 15 PX and noticed that it looks like it has plenty of ventilation but... Do the PXs need any help getting air in? I know it was something everyone was adding to the Yamaha skis. Thinking to add a couple of vents under the rear of the seat.

    Yes they need help. Can use R&D vent kit, frogskinz, or just hole saw and leave em open. Many of us have these on the rear grab handle assembly.

    I'm not so convinced when I added the two rear (open) vents it did anything at all (especially the R&D versions as they have very small open area). The 160-degree thermostat makes a much bigger difference. Don't think I would do the vents again.

    If you ride flat freshwater, you could remove the two long front air vent tubes. They are only held in place with 1 body panel push pin.

    I mostly ride a river. Occasionally will cross a large wake. Wondering if anyone opened up the nostrils on the hood?

    On my ol FZR I was going to add a second set of air ducts. I'll have to look closer at this PX,maybe I can do the same.

    I don't do anything to crazy. Just an occasional wake crossing.
