    1997 GSI

    I am helping out a friend with his 1997 GSI. It needs an MPEM. Does anyone have one for sale or is there another model and year that will work? Thanks.

    I used to have a 97 GSI and unfortunately it's a one year wonder as far as the MPEM goes you need one specific to that model and year nothing else will work. I needed an MPEM for mine a few years ago and ended up getting a new one from the dealer.

    Unfortunately the owner does not think the ski is worth the price of the MPEM. I did see an aftermarket one on Ebay. It sounds very primitive. Does not need to be programed. You can use any dess key and cannot get data out of it. It is only $140.00. If he gets it , I will let you know how it works out.

    We used to have a '97 GSi also. Same deal....MPEM's are few and far between and the new ones cost too much. I just bought a complete used e-box from an earlier 717 powered machine and wired it up into ours. You will need the wiring schematics and a little electrical knowhow. I used the DESS as the kill switch and mounted an older style pushbutton for start. I mounted the box with rubber straps on topp of the gas tank. We rode it for 2 years like that with no issues.
