    Something Different on the 250X

    Kristy and I installed running LED's on my ski Friday evening. Each LED (30 in all) was mounted, secured and soldered individually. There really is no real purpose, but we thought it would be cool. Also, it is something that probably no one else would have. Just our own opinion....

    Hey that's neat. It looks like you have a 1 watter under the very front lip of the lid. Is it?

    It's illegal in my state to ride at night, is yours?

    What was your source for the led's? I know you can get them at electronic stores....just looking to see if you have a good online source.

    Thanks for the compliment Earthshaker...

    Right under the front lip of my ski is an electrical hook up for the brake lights on the ski to work simultaneously with the brake lights and turn signals on our trailer.

    It is illegal to ride in South Carolina at night also. The lights are mainly just for looks and something different than anyone else.

    I did order my LED's online at "Oznium.com".

    Hey KristyLynn I'm with you on the lights. I tried to spark some discussion previously about mounting lights and/or depth finder in the mirror housings or discreetly on the bow like you did. I thought maybe it was a faux pax to talk bells and whistles that don't translate to more hp or mph so I dropped it. Its also illegal to operate at night here in WA but I thought a 50watt halogen would be great even so. You never know when you might be stuck out somewhere and that 2 hours leading up to sunset can be phenomenal out here. I've got a strobe I can clip onto my vest but that may not be as visible as even those LEDs. I had a boater come up on me just outside the marina one night and he said he couldn't see the strobe. He thought I was a killer whale at first and he flipped. Of course, the only reason I was out there dead in the water in the first place was cuz I had a Seadoo at the time.

    You brought up a pretty good point. If you had an engine problem close to dark, that light could very well save your azz. If a water cop ever opens his yap, that's the first reason I'd bark at him.

    I wouldn't worry much about the ocasional non performance topic. People here seem to be much more respectful of others opinions...

    We have already been pulled over twice by the lake police. Once in Lake Keowee and last weekend at Lake Greenwood. In Keowee, we were riding without our registration numbers on because we had just purchased the skis a week prior and the registration has not been sent back to us with the proper sticker and numbers. On Greenwood, we were heading back to the docks just cruising at the end of the day kind of slow due to Kristy was running low on fuel. They flipped on the blue lights, asked for Registration, show them our fire extinguisher and show them a whistle. Both times we were legal, but getting pulled over twice just to check us out is crazy. Maybe because they have never seen the 250X's on their lake before....
