    does the 04 gp1300r have the ablity to charge battery with a speaker system??????????

    just trying to find out if the ski could handle the power being used for a small set up with a 150 watts worth of power. do I need to make another spot for a second stand alone battery? some tips would be nice if anyone has a setup and yes pics would be great.

    I would think that the charging coil would not have enough to compensate for the drain. unlike a car which varies amperage depending on load, wave runner load is pretty constant.

    I did some research on this not to long ago and thought about doing it myself and from what I understand you need a set up that draws low amps from the battery for the charging system not to be affected there use to be a kit for pwc's and I think the system only drew like 2 amps but I don't think you cant get it any more kicker makes the PXi50.2 that is made for atv's motorcycles and smaller charging systems that with some DC gold's would be a good set up to try IMO.

    The word I got on this issue long ago was that the manufacturers deliberately left the chargeing systems weak to keep down cost and more importantly to keep owners from installing running lights on these boats. No running lights makes them illegal to run at night.

    Can you imagine the liability issues if some knuckle heads were riding these things wide open after dark?
