    Plugs For 310 Flush Ports

    One of the first things I noticed on my 310X was the open flush ports. This looked like an open invitation to bugs, at least where I live.

    I looked in various hardware stores and was surprised that I couldn't find any male garden hose plugs. I thought I was going to have to buy some from Kawasaki (they're used on the Ultra LX flush ports). However, yesterday I was able to find some suitable plugs made for campers. They're made by Camco, part # 22103. They have little prongs that stick out, making it easy to grip them. They even have a little lanyard so you can tie them down if you wish.

    Dont' forget to take them out when you go riding!

    The Mosquitos here in Texas are big . . . I doubt they'll fit in those Ports to begin with JB

    I plan to, but does water come out of the ports? My dealer said no, that there were check valves inside.

    Water absolutely comes out of them. I wouldn't be putting plugs in - very easy to forget prior to riding.

    Perhaps attach a Remove before Flight bright red safety tag.



    And a reminder label somewhere near the steering, engine start area.

    Gee, do you think my dealer told me wrong???

    If I can remember to put the drain plugs in. I can remember to take the flush plugs out.

    I've cleaned enough mud dauber nests out of peeholes in the past, I don't plan to do it anymore.

    Check out this Thread - and make your decision whether or not "your dealership" knows the SC'd Kawasaki Platform or not:

    http://www.greenhulk.net/forums/showthread.php?t=267606

    Maybe a little reading of your Owner's Manual is in order. If you didn't get one with your machine - they can certainly be had for a few bucks.

    Reference:

    Good Luck !!!

    I would remove those plugs before you overheat your engine and intercooler...its just too easy to forget if you become distracted when launching....any bug would get a 30 second to mars trip upon startup.

    I think the concern was with mud that some bugs carry into the opening, potentially creating a rather solid dirt 'plug' inside the tubing.

    I have encountered mud 'plugs' in my own watercraft openings from time to time, depending on where they were parked and what kinds of bugs wandered by.
