    Speedo wiring

    Is it possible to convert the yamaha speedo pickup to work with the SD gauges? IT would make installing the sender on the rideplae a WHOLE lot easier. 00 gpr- 05 rxp.

    thanks

    The speedo can work, but the temp gauge is in the SD speedo.

    So, you gain a worthless, not every accurate speedo, that drags the water, and doesn't read over 70mph (SD doesn't go over 70) and you lose the water temp function...which is VERY helpful in tuning.


    What I've done on my latest conversion for the Red Devil, is install the SD speedo housing, pulled up tight to the feedthru hole and removed the speedo wheel completely. If it actually went over 70mph I would have installed it... well maybe not.

    I just want the gauge to look like it's working and not beep at me all the time I'm sensitive

    but really, this one has 3 wires. I don't think my 05 donor has a temp gauge. or do they all have them?

    Yes, they all have the temp sensor built into the speedo gauge.

    Another option is to just go by the dealer and have them turn the feature off. It's programmable.

    took 2 hours to get that goddam thing off. Why in the hell did they use a tube of silicone on the speed sender, but none on the training wheels or the DRAIN PLUGS

    I'll see if I can make a cool adaptor to fit teh gpr plate. otherwise it;s getting tiestrapped to the hull

    on second thought, I need some ideas on getting this big as sensor mounted to the plate. It bothers me to leave it dangaling. What have you guys done? Pictures please!!!!!

    Has anyone tried to use the older style speedo's that came on the 98-02ish SD ski's ? Much smaller profile and has the three leads coming out of it just like the RXP one does.
