    310X Knock Sensor

    Here is a couple pics of the knock sensor on 310X engine - just above/between the starter and oil cooler on the RH side of the engine.





    When the knock sensor activates, there would be few symptoms you would notice as following:
    1. Engine runs at Limp Home mode - 3000 rpm max. Boat speed maybe 7-8 mph only.
    2. Beeping sound (just like when fuel level is too low).
    3. "dEtO" flashing on the meter - meaning "detonation".
    etc.

    Has anyone's 310X experienced the knock sensor activating yet?

    Nothing from the sunny state
    I think the strategy on the knock circuit makes sense to me...As most people will ignore a light or just reset the buzzer..... but to limit the power till u re cycle the ignition makes a CLEAR message to the rider that ssomething is wrong

    I wouldn't be if I'm here to help [/QUOTE]. Didn't mean to be disrespectful, I just thought you might be joking.




    Why and what do you find strange?[/QUOTE] Going into a limp mode (8km) instead of reducing REV's/LOAD just below knock level with alert warning or only alert warning and let rider back off.



    As I said just my humble opinion using a limp mode seems over the top

    Over the top? People cried when they detonated an engine to death with no knock sensor, now your saying its over the top they have one with a function that actually prevents that from happening!? Hahahaha

    Are you a lawyer? Try rereading my comments above "over the top" comment

    I have not experienced this; the Ski has run at full power at all times.

    This is good info to know, thanks MGM. I was wondering in the back of my mind exactly how this might work. I for one am glad the Knock Sensor is on there. It's just another example of how Kawasaki has made this Ski even more User Friendly . . . and still kept razor sharp performance intact. JB
