    It just doesn't read fuel level at all? Fill the tank and then check for resistance to the pink and black wire to the rear of the guage it should show 33 ohms full. If it stays near 240 ohms when the tank is full, the float probably became saturated and will no longer float. The float number should be 2872860.

    One other thing you can check real quick is voltage to the guage, while the engine is running see if you have 12+ volts between the red/white and black wires. Don't let the engine run without water too long.

    The second paragraph of course will not apply to your ride.

    Limp Mode

    I have a 1996 SL 780, I went into my voltage box and unplugged the grey wire and it by passed the rev limiter.

    I like having my rev limiter. When you hit a wake a full throttle and your ski comes unhooked form the water there is a good chance that you will over rev it. Well that is when rods and other parts start coming apart.

    Use a multimeter and test the two wires going to the sending unit. These are the ohms from a 94 but it should be the same. All you need to do is remove the sending unit, put one test lead on each of the wires. Then turn it upside down for full reading and right side up for empty. You should get something close to these #'s. If not then you have a bad sender.



    260 empty
    55 full

    If you have the sender unit out of the tank you can test it by turning the gauge upside down. One end will give you a reading of roughly 33 ohms the other direction will give you roughly 220-240.
    You have the tube style which if bad just needs the float replaced.

    The rev limiter was only useful when you were getting low on gas, other then that, it doesnt really matter. The models after 1996 starting using fuel reserves instead. The jetski runs like a top ever since!
