    welcome to the kawi family, I am a new kawi owner myself.

    Have you done any general maintenance on your ski yet?

    Thanks. No time yet, by the time I get home it's too late to do anything. Gonna try and do some cleaning up on it over the weekend. I still have to register it and all.

    What does the side Pisser do? Is this used to indicate the water cooling system is working correctly? Sorry for the noob question.

    No dumb questions! Yes, it indicates water flow. It isn't foolproof, as you can still have a cooling water blockage and get water out the pisser.

    Ok all,

    Did a spark plug replacement using the recommended plugs and .7-.8 gap. I got a good used Trim Cable but no hull seal, which is ordered. I wanted to verify my ski pisses and got nothing. I traced the hose to what looks like a solenoid, then traced the wires back to a silver box (looks like the brain-not sure what it is called). Anyways, in my tracing, my hand just bumped a couple of the couplers and they snapped off. Can these be bought? Also, does this silver box control that pisser solenoid?

    All hoses were verified clear, so no debris. I also removed the hose going to the solenoid and started up the ski and water started coming out of the hose so I assume my cooling system is working.

    The 'solenoid' is actually the overheat sensor. When the water in there gets too hot, it triggers the ignition module (in the silver box) to go into 'limp mode' to prevent engine damage.

    The plastic inserts are available from Kawasaki, about $3 each. You'll have to remove the plastic ends from the wires to change them. You can stick a pin into each connector to unlock it and pull it out of the plastic plug.l

    You really need these plastic inserts, they keep water out of the electrical system if you should flood the hull, or even just tip it over.l
