Post from Chris Hill (UK Ozone dist) taken from UK site kiteboarder.co.uk - http://www.kiteboarder.co.uk/kitesurfin ... hp?t=12416


Hello everyone,
I have some useful resorces here for you if your interested in the Instinct or maybe you are one of the lucky people to own one and need to keep abreast of developments.

Firstly, http://www.flyozone.com/kitesurf/newsarch/newsarch.asp this link will take you to all the news and topics on the Instinct and there is also plenty of detailed pictures to drool over

We have recieved a few queries from some shops and public relating to 'What size bar can go on what size kite' So here is the definative answer.
IMPORTANT POINTS:
• Instinct 7 and 9m MUST ONLY be used on a 50cm bar
• Instinct 11 and 13m MUST ONLY be used on a 60cm bar
This is IMPERTIVIVE that everyone understands these points. The bars are set up differently and have different length chicken-loop lines which effects the depower ability.
THE KITES DO NOT FLY TO FACTORY TRIM FOR SAFETY IF YOU USE THE WRONG SIZE BAR

7m Instinct uses a 50cm bar with 25m lines
9m Instinct uses a 50cm bar with 25m lines
11m Instinct uses a 60cm bar with 25m lines
13m Instinct uses a 60cm bar with 27m lines

If you need help with identifying the struts on your Instinct for any reason this diagram is available via this link.

Bridle Modification for all Instincts
After many hundreds of hours of testing Ozone have decided to remove one of the bridle lines that connect from the 'Y'Bridle group to the centre strut. This is to aid in water re-launching.
This mod needs no tools and takes only 5 minutes to do, pdf instructions can be dowloaded from this link: http://www.flyozone.com/pdf/Instinct_St ... emoval.pdf

Safety leash attachment
To make sure you secure the safety systems properly and that you are using the correct method for your skill level please check the lataest version of the Instinct manual http://www.flyozone.com/pdf/instinct-ma ... _final.pdf

Ozone have also developed an optional safety kit which will allow you to flag the kite out completely via the 5th line. This will be of most use to beginers and schools as well as anyone wanting the the highest level of security available.
The first of these kits will be available in the UK from next week.
More info on this is available here:
http://www.flyozone.com/pdf/safety_kit.pdf

Well, that just about wraps it up for now. I will keep updating the forum with any new information and developments from Ozone but if you have any queries or questions please don't hesitate to mail me instinct@surface-tension.co.uk

Am guessing the lines are extended by 1m, because 1m is the amount the 5th line needs to be pulled, used to be about 3m on old C kite 5th lines, but Bows are a lot flatter so dont need as much.

Dont know about span lines.

Can't quite make out from the photo how the purple line coming in from right is connected there ?

Pretty sure mine just has the purple line coming in from left (leader line) looped through the other two.

ie. pass the purple line from left, through purple line from right, through red line from top, then back through itself.

Hope that helps. :-?
