Thread: Kill switch
05-12-2009, 07:03 PM #1
Has anyone installed a kill switch to the battery or do you know of any quick mod that I can do to make sure the waverunner will not start? This is mainly for security purposes when leaving it in the water overnight.

i pull fuses but the water temp sensor seems quicker.

Assuming its a GPR, they're quite famous for the starter relay sticking and you go chugging along the water at 2 mph trying to figure out how to kill power to the engine. I (and others) have installed a marine cutoff switch on the positive side battery cable. Keeps the scary starter thing from happening and potentially keeps thieves from stealing your ride. Two birds with one stone.

I bought one from Academy - they're about $20 if I remember right.
I used to have it installed on the drivers side (WFO always laughs at me for saying this) of the hull, with panhead bolts going through right behind your left knee. With the overhaul I'm doing right now, I moved it to the midwall on the passenger side.
You will likely have to buy some extra + cable - just hit up Autozone and buy a battery cable, cut it to length, and solder on a new lug.
