    Syphon tube removal ?

    Can I remove my syphon tube but still keep my stock bilge pump? I have done searches and it seems u pick up a couple rpms. If i can what do I do with the tube that is connected to it? disconnect and leave it hanging?

    If you remove the siphon tube you will loose all suction for the stock bilge. So, to answer your question, no, you can not take the tube out and retain the stock siphon bilge. Put an electric in and you will never regret it.

    I dont know about you guys but I never see water in my 2007 GP1300. After I ride it is always bone dry. If we remove that syphon tube and the plastic bilge in the main compartment we still have the electric one in the back that it comes with. Is that enough. That is an electric one right?

    I know some people don't like them, but if you remove the syphon tube I would add duckbills. I would also rig your stock electric bilge up for manual/automatic operation. I removed the syphon, and I would have been down a day at Mudbug if I hadn't had the duckbills. Darn mystery water.

    You can use that hose from the tube as a feed line for a Jetworks kit.

    Just remove the syphon and you'll be fine because the electric one will still work but if you wanna be extra safe then just rig your electric pump with a manual on/off switch.

    Just so you know, the GPR 1200's do NOT have an electric pump stock.

    I thought we were talking about an 07 1300?

    On my 07 the electric bilge is in constant operation so i wouldn't see any prob removing the tube...

    if im not mistaken I think the bilge only turns on when you start it and when you turn it off.
