    Tip over sensor?

    That sensor that slows down your engine when you get vertical sucks when jumping. Has anyone bypass that switch yet?

    its there for a reason ... oil gets displaced when u get vertical or tip and the motor doesnt get proper lubrication .. it is one of the best things seadoo has ever done ... learn to live with it it has already saved your motor .. trust me

    The Rotax Racing ECU doesn't act up like that when you get vertical.

    Whatever... That is not the reason they install that switch.. trust me or otherwise they have a design flaw in the motor if that was the purpose.

    I agree with crazed but if you want to bypass it, short the two wires together on the sensor and the computer will always think it's level.

    That thing is another annoying SeaDoo gimmick, along with the mats, the thumb throttle, ridiculous steering, DESS and OPAS.

    If you tip your ski over there's a good chance you bailed already and the lanyard already shut the motor off.

    Pointless.

    according to the manual when tipped over a valve of some kind closes and prevents oil from entering the intake manifold. Makes sense to me

    Then why doesn't pulling the lanyard do it?

    it does. The valve is normally closed when the lanyard is off.

    the tip over sensor is there for those "slow" rollovers where the rider rolls it over but doesn't go far and the lanyard is still attached.

    The tip over sensor is a mercury switch mounted to the side of the mpem bracket. it is a normally closed switch, so if you decide to bypass it, all the needs to be done is short the two wires together. I was going to play around with it, but I really don't do much jumping. I've done enough jumping to encounter the "tops bogg" though and it sucks! I'm not sure it's just the action of going vertical however.

    I was goofing around this weekend and decided to test it out. I had my brother in law, who is about 6'2" and 260 lbs stand on the back of the ski, and lean back as far as he can holding on the grab handle, while I leaned back as far as I could hammering the throttle with the trim all the way up. The ski was literally vertical 30 plus seconds two or three times without encountering the "topps bogg", so I'm not 100% sure that's what's triggering it.

    could be the mercury switch is goofing up during the free-fall part of the jumping regardless of the attitude of the ski. But until someone who does alot of jumping tries bypassing it it's hard to tell.

    If you do bypass it, and you get into a rollover situation, make a consious effort to pull the lanyard as quick as possible. Water in your oil will ruin your day.
