SXR Hood Storage ? Ghetto or Whoaa ?

Always bothered me that there is no storage for a T-Shirt, registration so you do not have to open hood if stopped by Enforcement etc. I used RTV to seal this vinyl permit protector witb a ziploc seal. Usure how I like it but I wanna see how it functions. Best thing is it is easily reversable.

I just have always liked the idea of a dry shirt and especially for my kids not having to worry bout removing the hood for the papers if stopped.

I came up with this solution. It will hold a bottle of oil,a phone,your registration and other things.

Oh man, that plate is a "blow off valve", if you were to have a backfire into the engine compartment or flashfire, that lid is designed to "blow" off to allow the pressure to escape. I have never known and SXR to do that, but I had a waterbox explode once on a 550 and it busted my hull and hood................

Pressure can still go out of the two air intake tubes.

LOL, if you say so........... By the time any of the pressure made it out, your hood hooks would be bent, hood latch trashed and either hull or hood cracked. I had a flash fire once on an old 550 with the hood off. It blew me off my feet back into the water.

The Whistle belongs attached to your life jacket, won't help ya when you're disconnected with Ski, per USCG.

You plan to mix that oil by feel or look? I know you switched to injection.

Sorry, but using the blow out of the SXR for that is silly. They make packs you can attach to the handlepole. I ride with a backpack and ditch it when I got to the riding area, or half way and pick it back up on the way home.

interesting, I never knew that, looks like a cool idea though
