    Here is the wiring diagram, and exactly how I had the ACR and manual combiner switch wired.

    My new wiring setup will be a little different. I'm going to have the engine go directly to the...

    Thanks. I've got an ACR, which operated in this way with my combiner switch before the switch broke. I just wanted to make sure your combiner application still used the ACR and there were no...

    On the bilge pump issue, if you are anchoring and getting off the ski to dive, that is when you will need the bilge pump most. The only time my hull gets enough water in it to kick off the bilge...

    I'm with you all on the bilge pump. I have a Rule 1100 GPH wired directly to the battery as noted on it's own bolt. The Deka battery is nice in that it allows multiple bolts and connections to a...

    Texas Jet Ski Fishing

    Figured I would share this with the fishing enthusiasts on here.

    Our latest video fishing on our Waverunner in the Gulf of Mexico.

    As Rivera noted, this is blocked off in the valve cover. Nothing goes there. Shine a light inside the port and you'll see that it's solid aluminum.

    The boondocks transducer mount on the boarding step is almost identical to what I've got (from a local source, though). I'd recommend it and would expect it to read at up to 50 mph, depending on the...

    I use a Garmin Echomap 63cv (also old but it only cost about $300 for the unit and transducer). I've got 1.5 inch ram ball mount with the two inch arm mounted directly to the plastic part of the...

    Oh, good. Yeah, we've got a few videos that give you an idea of the setup and the ride. I think that was like 3.5 ft, 4 seconds, and was a tough ride--but primarily because it was freezing cold...

    You shouldn't have any concerns about the reliability of an FX. I fish offshore on a 2012 FXSHO and frequently go 20-30 miles offshore on my own without hesitation regarding the reliability of the...

    I fish a 2012 fxsho offshore in the gulf out of Texas and would strongly recommend the FX hull. I've also ridden the vx in the gulf and you'll be limiting yourself with it. It takes a lot more work...

    How much for the glove compartment? Just the plastic box, not the lid and latch, but I could do it all if you didn't want to split it.

    I've got a 2012 FX SHO, and other than the larger section where the paint is removed, I have scratches and scuffs on the hull that look almost identical to yours in the same spots. I don't do...

    Surprisingly good news. I ran the ski all day yesterday fishing and trolling. Put 6 hours on the ski and about 50-60 miles and ran through nearly an entire tank of gas, and I now have no further...

    The Dealer told me that there is water present, but running it on the hose, no more water was added that they could see. They told me to change the oil and keep riding it until there was more water....

    The strap doesn't fit because the box and strap were designed for SLA batteries, but you have an AGM. I have that exact battery from Advanced Auto and it is the right battery.

    Agreed on this. I go to the Texas Yamaha South location and have nothing but good things to say about their warranty service. It typically takes them at least 3 weeks to do anything, but that's...

    I've got a 2 year YES warranty that began in July 2019 on a 2012 fx sho. I bought the ski used from the dealer last year, and they offered it then, but said if it was a year older they couldn't offer...

    I'm the second owner, and bought it in August of last year from the local dealer with 110 hours, and it's got 155 hours on it now. Previous owner used it primarily in salt water, and so do I.

    Thanks, all. Any harm in running it hard today to see if the water burns off?

    The water on the hose was from a tap in Houston. The water from the tap is right around 50 degrees, but I couldn't...

    This is not the oil cooler on my ski just from looking at it.

    And I figured out what that plastic piece is. It was glued to the valve cover over the timing chain.

    I will take a look at the oil cooler and how to pull it for pressure testing before running in the water again.

    Also, when I was going to put the valve cover back on, I noticed this random plastic...

    I'm not sure on the type of oil cooler, but I believe the oil cooler water flows out the left (port) and the intercooler on the right side (starboard). I didn't notice an oily sheen in the water,...
