    Gauge Placement Pros and Cons

    One of my winter projects is adding Innovate Boost and AFR gauges to my '06 RXP. Fuel pressure gauge will be inside the hull, attached to the FPR, so I'm really thinking I'll only need to place 2 gauges.

    Anyone care to chime in with the pros and cons of the following three placement ideas?

    1) RXPJay's mounts - fit in mirror (obvious "con" is you lose the mirror)

    2) Jlew's glove box pod - (obvious "con" is the glove box won't open as far... but HOW far?)

    3) Under steering column pod seen here: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Seadoo-RXP-R...498673&vxp=mtr (obvious "con" is again the glove box won't open as far, but how much will it open?)

    Thanks in advance for any insight from those who have any experience with all these.

    Steve

    I have the glove box pod on an 05 RXT and it opens plenty far to get in there, and I have fairly large hands. The fitment is great, the wires and line from the intake are hidden. Just my .02

    RXPJAys for sure on an RXP! He's got a picture of my afr gauge in my 07 on one of his threads.. I never used the mirrors anyway.. My fiancé would to fix her hair before we went into a bar or somewhere, I told her to carry a mirror if she needs it.. Afr and boost in RXPJays anodized black pods, on a yellow 07 hood with black RXPX mirror housings, love em

    Here is my old 2008 RXPX...I would just remove the lid if I wanted to view them...All liquid filled Autometer gauges and I used Autometers kit to tilt them forward. A/F was in the handlebar pad

    That's a nice setup, but I'm installing a bilge pump switch in the bottom of the glove box.

    The ONLY thing making me hesitate on Jay's awesome mirror pods is that unlike many riders, I actually DO use the mirrors. I ride with my teenage kids a lot when we're out at our cabin, and they tend to be behind me as we ride on the river, so I'm often checking the mirrors to make sure I know where they are...

    There is a switch for the bildge if you look close...
