    do you mean clean the intercooler internals or flushing it as part of post ride maintenance / winterization?

    Leave the side caps on (had to say it bc some people think they need to take them off) and just use regular gas. I like to pour it reverse air flow but it doesn't really matter just pour it in and slosh it around, rinse with water and air dry when done

    Yea there is the "free flow" kit that removes the 2nd water box.... what are the disadvantages? I guess you could say that kawi added back the 2nd water box on the 310's to help with the leaning issue. Other then MAYBE leaning a bit like the 300's did i cant see any real negatives to it. Maybe someone else will chime in

    I dont know the specs just that it was a pain to get all the way back there to tighten up the clamps. If you got your intercooler out for a cleaning i would definitely do the free flow at the same time!

    Lol Iíve already put it back in itís that difficult to remove the ic anyway. I want to get my own pipe made up itís a lot cheaper probably look a lot better in polished stainless steel. I dare say the bends and the diameter will be same as the factory one?
