    run time without a rectifier? 1 hour?

    i have a GTX RFI 2001, i am planning to water test it tomorrow without the rectifier (which is blown) so there will be no charging while i ride.

    I have a brand new fully charged battery. How long do you think i will be able to ride for 1 hour?

    not a long time, that model has heavy power consumption. I'd say 20 minutes tops

    Yep, it will eat right through that battery.

    and whatever you do...

    DO NOT put a full size car battery in your backpack to try to get another hour out of it. As stated..bad idea. Running an RFI/di in limp mode for any length of time _on purpose_ rank right up there in the top ten bad ideas of all times


    <my best " das boat" accent> ( I do a much better gary busey/under seige II)
    "Herr captitan(sic), we can use hydrogen instead of helium, we can make hydrogen on board to refill the gas bags since Herr builders couldn't stop all of the leaks in tme. It's a fine idea if you ask me.

    Point taken, can you explain why it is a bad idea, and why would i be in limp home mode? the jet ski is running normally as far as i can tell, it is just the fact the battery isnt charging?

    to explain further to purpose of the water test is the determine if there are any other issues to deal with before completing the works on this ski.
