    Keep an eye on these strainers guys. The smaller it is, the more the pump pressure will affect the durability of it. Pump pressure goes up with RPMs, so if you're in the 9,000+ rev range you should inspect it even more often or just switch out to a larger one.

    If you are going to run that little strainer keep a close eye on it. It likely can't handle the pump pressure this Yamaha pump puts out.

    Thanks. Is the one Jerry recommends a good one for 8600?

    The one I linked--- Temperature Rating, 150 PSI @70 degrees F, 100 PSI @125 Degrees F.

    I was told by Fizzle the Yamaha can peak at 75psi on a direct feed line.

    and I don't see my riding the ski in 125 degree water.

    It's not the outside water temp you need to worry about. The temp under the seat gets to be 165 degrees +
    Keep in mind your engine is operating at 180 degrees, and can get hotter under prolonged periods of WOT, which heats up the air under the seat.
