This is a very stupid question lol.
Do 4 stroke pwc have air filters
I read the whole owners manual and not once did they mention about any air filter for servicing etc. so I'm guessing they don't, I'll like to know for sure.

Thanks

No, I don't believe there is any marine application that uses the standard air breathing filter system that you'd see in a car per se. Probably because there's not much chance of picking up sand from the road as you drive.......
Most, if not all, marine intake systems have a flame arrester, made in many different ways. My 787 uses a stainless mess screen at the intake of the carbs. This is to prevent a fire in the engine compartment in the event there is fuel present and my engine backfires.
I didn't see a flame arrestor in the 4 TEC engine but there is a lot of distance between the intake and the supercharger, referred to as a silencer.
I hope this answers your question.
