What is needed to start a ski?
It has now been determined that my skis will not be replaced/repaired by insurance. Lawyers could care less about a non-injury case and the degenerate fck who wrecked me doesn't have any assets worth suing anyway.
So...It's time to get to work.
I've got a garage that's empty except for a new engine hoist, my tools, 2 busted up skis, a shop cart, and busted up trailer. First step. I need to make sure the motors of both skis weren't damage from all the slamming and flipping. RXT should fire up as soon as I find the key. But what do I need in order to start the RXP-X. Motor and electrical wise, everything should be intact except for the gauge cluster. Is the gauge cluster necessary in order to start the ski? I previously thought it was only for display purposes? The steering column is snapped and the only thing holding the handles and finger throttles is the wiring coming up out of the ski. So it's also possible that one of those wires might be shorted out or unattached somewhere.
But for now my main question is: Would the ski normally be able to click, beep, turn on, or anything at all, without a gauge cluster connected?

damn man sorry to hear that...i dont see why it wouldnt start without the gauge cluster working. if the wires are the only thing that held your bars on, theres a good chance you will have a shorted/displaced wire. best of luck brotha!

That sucks he didnt have insurance and yours isnt going to kick in. BTW have you checked with your home owners insurance? May be worth a call.
Best of luck to you

Yes, you need the cluster attached to start the ski. It is a security feature that started in 2006, to keep people from swapping clusters to reduce apparent hours.

You might be better off parting the px out if it's that much damage save yourself some time
