    Similarity of the Genesis (01) and Virage (02)? EDIT: Difference in wiring harnes?

    Hi,

    I'm looking at purchasing second hand parts off a 2002 Virage TXi and just wanted to make sure everything was the same to fit onto my 2001 Genesis i. From my understanding the Genesis is just a 4 seater version of the Virage, so the only difference is the hull design? All running gear, for example; engine, injectors, emm, wiring harness, throttle cables, impeller, should be the same? Did a quick search but could only find discussions on the differences between the MSX 140 and the Genesis.

    Cheers

    Only thing I can think of is the Genesis has the short driveshaft & pump & the Virage runs the long. Other than that I think all the drive line stuff is the same.

    Ah yeah that makes sense except I think you mean that the Genesis runs the longer driveshaft as it is a longer ski haha.

    Didn't even think of the ride plate and intake grate but that's fine I'll be leaving the stock setup on the Genesis.

    Just wanted to make sure that there wasn't anything silly like compression, tuning or wiring that was different. Thanks for that

    Nope, the genesis runs the short shaft & no pump extention. I guess less driveshaft flex under heavier loads.
    Also the coils are mounted to the heads on the Virage & on the hull on the Genesis but they will interchange.

    Difference in wiring harnesses 2001 Genesis i vs 2002 Virage TXi

    What is the go with the difference in wiring harnesses? I'm looking at getting a complete wiring harness with the electrical box for my 2001 Genesis i. I've sourced most of the other parts off a 2002 Virage TXi and then I was sent a photo of the Virage's harness and told that it looks different inside the electrical box. Could anyone confirm they are plug and play and that the 02 Virage harness will work fine in my 01 Genesis?

    There are a bunch of little differences between Virage 2002 TXi wire harness and Genesis. Going from memory;

    2002 Virage TXi does not have PERC electric reverse, so no wire harness for the reverse motor that is in the Genesis.
    EMM mounting locations are different so wire harness lengths are different
    No electrical box on the 2002 Virage TXi, all connections done with waterproof connectors.
    No reverse position indicator wiring in the Virage MFI display connector
    Some other stuff I have forgotten...

    Thanks K447. I might just try and find a complete Genesis harness instead of using parts off the Virage harness.
