Battery & CDI Box relocation
Was able to move the black box and relocate the battery using mostly all existing parts and a sawzall. This may not be for everybody and does take some time along with the addition of longer spark plug wires. While I was at it, installed a battery cutoff switch which is a must when running an Advent ignition.

This modification allows me to access the mixture screws on the carbs. The high speeds are on the bottom with the Novi carbs making it very difficult to adjust.

This also is the key to not cracking your pto triple pipe on a 1200 boat.
What did you use for plug wires?

I just used the highest grade Accel wires at the at the local parts store. Surely there is better grade from Jegs or Summit but I wanted to run it that day. The Seadoo coils are on this boat so it was a farely easy job.

Another benefit to this mod was how much easier to clean the inside of the hull. Was able to get the can of CRC-56 down and lubricate all the carbs and dry the hull with towels.
50 miles of riding in the heavy 2' chop in Tampa Bay and everything worked perfect.

Duke Great Job!! I have had this on my list for quite some time. QuickMick used to make SST brackets for the relocation. I bought billet battery trays a year ago they are still sitting on my shelf. I have longer battery cables from an xlt installed in one of my skis already. other than spark plug wires did you have to lenghthen anything else?
