2017 Flite 17m Help!

Postby knot_moving » Wed Jan 31, 2018 2:12 am

I pulled my LE bladder out to fix a couple pinhole leaks. I am in a hotel with only the bladder & it would help me a lot to know:
When normally inflating the kite, is the inflate valve to the right or left of the center strut valve?

-- this way I know which side of the bladder to look for the leak in. I know roughly where it is but only roughly.

As per this picture of a 2017 Flite it would appear to be on the left of center strut when pumping...hope this helps you...good luck fixing the leaks

Your photo is not from a 2017 model as per help question
It's from an older model

Here's a photo of a 2015 Flite

Pullstrings is correct, it is on the left side (as you pump). Good luck with it, M!

I don't think your photo is from a 2017 model....mine is
Yep, his pic is from a 2014 or maybe 2015. They changed to a higher flow valve a couple of years ago. :thumb:
