    Bilge pump switch

    I have an after market handlebar setup on my rxp. Im looking for a handlebar mount for a 3way switch to hook up my bilge pump, but i have not found exactly what im looking for. Ive found many switches that would work, they are just not 3way. Has anybody used or tried something like this?

    Why do you need the bilge pump switch up on the handlebar?

    How often during a ride do you expect to activate the bilge pump?

    Three way switch, so you are using a bilge pump with automatic water sensing, correct? While riding you would just have the pump set to automatic mode, I expect.

    You would only need to access the switch if you decided to force the bilge pump on manually, correct?

    Correct. I guess it doesnt HAVE to be on the handlebars. I was just going to install another switch there to turn on my afr/boost gauges so i was going to add another for the pump. Not super important but i would like the bilge pump on a 3 way switch. Not liking the idea of switches inside the front compartment because i store my phone wallet and keys there,it could be activated easily accidentally

    Also, as for hooking up an lc-2, should I install a switch to reset the power to the lc2 when the gauge glitches out? Or, do i just need a switch for the gauge to reset the gauge only?

    If you must have a switch, put it on the mid-wall under the rear seat.

    Out of the way but not that hard to access should the need arise.

    I have a switch mounted to my handlebars are it works great. It is just the 2 way switch that comes in the Riva kit. If you are using a bulge pump with 3 wires (ground, auto and on) then just use the switch to trigger the “on” wire and leave the auto connected to the skis power system for auto use.
