X power supply
I will try this as no one had answer on my thread.
I need to power the boost gauge on T-X.
Can i use any solid purple wire as we have done on previous models, or anyone that has put boost gauge on 08 or X ski, were did you splice into power.
thanks someone knows.

Steven, any purple wire will work. Purple wires are switched on and off with the lanyard. There is about a 20 second delay though once you pull the lanyard.

I hooked mine up to the purple wire on the buds connector. I used a single strand wire and stripped it back about a half inch then I stuck it in the back of the buds connector through the O-ring were the purple wire enters the connector. This worked out perfect because there was no cutting or splicing neccesary.
Steven if you need a pic of how I did this I can post one for you tommorrow.

Heres the pics for those of you that want to hook up to a switched power source without splicing. I found this easiest if you have a single strand wire as it is stiffer and easier to poke through the o-ring on the connector. Once you poke the wire in and make contact all you need to do is add a zip tie to keep it from getting pulled out. I have been running mine like this for a while and have never had it come unhooked,
I hope this helps. I know the pics aren't the best.

looks great! thanks for the pics! so u plugged it straight into the back of the solid purple wire correct?

Yes! I dont know if the connector is the same on the x boats but any purple wire will work on any connector. You may have to fish the wire around a bit to get good contact.
