GP1300R Bilge pump questions
I have searched about this and have seen some major contradictions, so I thought I would ask.
The stock bilge pump on an 03 GP1300R is a 500 gph Rule Pump. I believe this is the same for all 1300's. I know it goes on for 20 seconds at start up and 20 seconds after the motor is stopped.
My question is... Does the pump remain on when the ski is running, does it cycle on/off, does it have a sensor to turn on. or does it stay off. (My old Polaris 350 gph pump was great, it was on all the time and had a switch.)
I recently removed the syphon tube for the Jetworks Mod and my hull has been staying dry without it. I just want to make sure I know how this existing pump works before I decide to go with a larger pump or duckbills.

The bilge pump is always on when the engine is running. I rewired mine with an on/off switch

I think it cycles on/off every 2 minutes when water shorts out the switch it turns on and expells the water.
Some of the higher end Rule pumps do it every 20 seconds. (25S-6wc).
You could always test it with a pail of water.

be careful about any permanent mounting as I have seen these pumps go out quite often in fishing boats. not so much in PWC's but they are the same product and i think alot of ski guys don't pay attention to theres as much as the boat guys. when i went to put my tunnel reinforcement kit in i found the neck broke on the oulet fitting, the break was inside the hose so not readily visible, lots of wave pounding tends to break these. mine was still under warranty so i got a new one from Yami. i wired mine to a toggle so i can run it only when needed (lasts longer).
