    Gp1800 Silence low fuel ??

    On the GP1800 or the VX Cruiser HO,
    How do you silence the overheat/low fuel alarm??
    I tried all the buttons that are available and nothing.

    Unlike the Fx's with the little mode/select buttons in front of helm ,,Im lost.

    As somebody else wrote

    I ended up sticking some tape over the buzzer under helm..

    That must be annoying as hell, The gauge of the GP's is honestly such a let down.

    Can't tell if you are being serious. I'm sorry. Best way....don't overheat. Keep fuel in tank. I've ran the hell out of my GP from island to island and never hit low fuel warning but if I did I would be glad to be aware of it. I agree however that the gauges could be better and fuel could read more accurately.

    It's a serious questions for me. I live on the lake so fuel levels don't concern me. I can make it back and refuel no problem.i don't need a 30 second annoying alarm tho.

    I have never gotten an overheat (even on hose) But low fuel -I hit almost every time.
    Supper annoying when low on fuel and flushing at home --AAARRGGG

    All their gauges need help (always did)

    2 bars at a time fuel level-What crack smoker came up with that and did his pill popping boss really think that was a Good idea....

    Non adjustable "No Wake"-- Why Not,,,

    But we are asking too much from a company that can't put sealant on right to make hulls waterproof.----DOOOHHH

    ohh ok. I gotcha. I agree about the two bars thing. That's one reason a needle gauge would be great. We can always stop and idle and check accurately. I hate digital fuel gauges on anything.

    As for the alarm, I haven't heard it but if its that ridiculous and piercing and constant and that is a little crazy. I just needs to be loud enough that the rider hears it when riding hard. That may have been their thinking lol. What if something happens at 5,000 rpm or more?
    idk.

    the fuel warning on these ski's sucks. SD's would give you an "intermittent" warning. this thing just wails like a fire alarm(annoying) if i can muffle the beeper that would be great.

    I think the FZ gauges, although hard to read look phenomenal, Love looking at them!

    Here we're always hitting the low fuel alarm after long rides, there is still a lot of range left ofcourse but I can't imagine enduring it for the periods we do here. I've easily gone 5 mins plus on the low fuel beeping. Maybe you could disconnect the beeper? although that has its downsides. How do you check for codes then?

    I put a piece of Hydro Turf over the buzzer to muffle it.

    Cant hear much over the Megaboom mounted between bars and dash now anyway..
    Still a flashing light on dash.

    Codes come up by themselves (had a Ride reverse code pop on me when I installed Trim)
    I use the remote to activate lock and unlock a few times -Seems to clear codes faster..

    If they run hot or low oil doesn't the rpm's get lowered automatically??
