Gauge Covers (boost, afr, etc.)
Hey guys, I am looking to find something that I can use to slide over my gauges during storage or when I am not using them. They are mostly water proof, but sometimes we get random rain storms that will pound them with water and leave moisture in the gauges. I was thinking something like silicone caps that come on intercooler ends, but I have no idea where to find them. I looked on google, but couldn't find anything useful. Any help would be appreciated.

The Sea Doo cover for the RXP-X is pretty nice and towable. Maybe just cover the whole ski and keep everything clean and free from taking a beating from the elements.
Nearest one to the camera is the 12-13 RXP-X cover

I have the ski covered while it's at home, but I am just looking for something to cover my after market gauges while out riding or when the ski just happens to not be covered.

Maybe you can use PVC tubing caps? But i'm afraid if you put caps on the gauges this will cause humidity to be kept inside and ... causing more issue to your gauges ... What brand are those gauges?

The gauges are innovate. It's funny because the covers that fit on the end of the out intercoolers, fit the gauges. I just need to figure out where to find them lol

I see what you did. (Figuratively ) put a couple of solo cup over them when they are parked.

Weird, I left mine outside during rain and the boost gauges is no longer working... No display and there humidity inside where the display is... I don't know if the fuse is ok... I'll check this later... What you guys think? It's not supposed to handle water?

When I first had my innovate afr gauge installed (thanks slow91 and whoever helped wire it up so clean) and took the ski out it got some moisture in it.. Just some condensation right under the lens.. I let it dry out real good and sealed the front and back of the gauge with clear silicone.. For the front, you can't even tell its got silicone on it, just put a fine bead around the face of the gauge and wiped all excess off, leaving just enough to fill the small hairline gap between the lens and the gauge.. 100+ hours and no more moisture.. Even hosing it off at full blast.. Will be doing the same whenever I get around to installing a boost gauge
