    Vehicle-down Sensor help

    so me and my buddy were working on his 260x and long story, we removed the Vehicle-down Sensor and once we opened it we dropped what ever was inside that black box inside the ski and we have not been able to recover it, is there any way to operate the craft with out this sensor or do i need to buy a new one?

    Its a hall effect sensor... there a wheel that has a groove in it. If the ski tilts more than 130 degrees in either direction , the wheel closes the circuit magnetically, and shuts off the fuel. Open it back up and make sure the open part of the wheel is facing up. If not you got to find a way to "trick" the pcm into thinking its right side up. Only bad part is if you do flip it will keep running. More information regarding this senso is in the fuel system section of the manual.
