Need Help on Waverunner VX Air Intake Restrictor Removal
I have a 2014 VX and am having a very hard time removing the air intake Ribbon/Restrictor/Flame Arrestor. I have pried around the edges with a standard screw driver as per some of the Youtube vids but its really not doing that much. After one hour I gave up. I'm now considering removing the intake manifold to gain better access to it and drilling it out, but I don't know how to remove the intake manifold. I've removed the fuel rod and the 2 manifold bolts on the underneath side, but I just can't get a tool on the 2 hose clamps per cylinder that seem to be holding the manifold on. Do I need some kind of special tool? Also, it I appears that the lower of the 2 hose clamps is only accessible from underneath. How the heck do you reach it?
Any help would be greatly appreciated,
