    I have a 99 GSXL that had a non-functioning fuel baffle and this method worked like a charm. I don't understand why the top section had to be cut out so I just cut the bottom section where the fuse was located. Took out the fuse and soldered the joint and now it works beautifully. I was also a little scheptical about the plastic welding but the idea of using the zip tie as a filler also worked perfectly. Saved me lots of $$$!!!! Thanks!

    AWESOME ! glad it worked for you ! yeah the top cut was just for me to inspect the connections at the top. But, the lower cut is where the fuse is at.
    Glad the plastic welding worked well for you also !

    Did this repair and it worked great!! Only thing I saw was that when testing the float does not recongize fast movements of the floater. Also on the circuit board I had a little hard time getting the solder to stick because the board we sweating a bit, but finally got it. Took the ski out and it works great!!! Thanks!!!!!!!!

    PLease listen to this quote ,rather than spend so much time fixing a fuel gauge,yet go and leave the bum grey fuel line from seadoo all in place,If it hasnt plugged your carb filters up partially yet ,it is because you have never put fuel in your doo,anywhere there is a restriction or a connection of the intake fuel line such as going into petcock or going into carb,if you cut open theend of the fuel lines you will see the clear inside is turning into a softish green slimy mess,And even if you clean and rebuild your carbs it will gunk up again very soon unless you replace that grey fuel line with true alchol resistant black fuel line,PS if you do it yourself you can get it much cheaper at an auto parts store ,because it doesnt say boat on it,yet is ten times better than the sea-doo grey POO!!!>Marvin

    I just bought a working baffle for $5 (+$6 shipping) on ebay. 3 hours later I had it in my 98 GSXL and it works great!


    If anyone has figured out a way to rip open the speed sensor and fix it lemme know!
