    How to remove water from bottom of 550sx hull after riding?

    How do you purge out the water that resides in the hull of a 550sx after riding? In this case its ~1-2 in spots. I know some got in from the round air opening in the hood.

    When I wash my 550 bilge I just take the filter off a shop vac and suck the water out. Not sure if there is a better way but that is how I do it.

    I use a shop vac on our skis after riding as well. Gets the hulls almost completely dry.

    I agree, shop vac and then a smaller hose attached to get into hard to reach areas.

    Ok, makes sense... better than leaving the water inside,

    I use a sponge, you'll get it all and it can travel with you anywhere.
    Never argue with an idiot, they will drag you down to their level then beat you with experience.
