    What is this??

    I have a 04 gp1300r like the name says and my question is what is the LARGE red cable that runs along the bottom of the ski from front to back? It sits on the bottom of the ski next to engine but does not go to it.... (its on the power valve side so you know where to look). I thought it was the trim cable but the cable looks to large for just a trim cable but I don't know.

    That is the trim cable housing.

    Thank you. I see it is rusting in a spot were it goes under the battery towards to back of the ski. How easy to install a new cable or how much to get it fixed?

    Try cleaning it with WD40. You should find the rust is from something that rusted near it.

    The housing is very tough. Unless it got "rubbed through" by vibration it should be fine.
    -The fact that it runs the length of the boat and includes a thru-hull fitting dont change it unless it's frozen inside.
