    Best Bilge Switch for X2 with UMI Racing Handlebars ?

    My wife's 1988 X2 has the X2 vertical Kawasaki start/stop switch on the left handle bar. It also has a motorcycle hand brake type lever for the nozzle trim on the left handle bar. I am not sure that there is enough room between the start/stop switch and the handlebar grip on the left for a Blowsion universal bilge switch:

    It had a 29-year-old pushbutton round three-wire bilge switch of a type I have never seen before which was mounted below the UMI Racing horizontal brace. And it finally failed this afternoon, almost sinking the ski.

    what you pictured is the best switch available. It is Mil -pec & very nice. I had one on my last x2.
    the 3 button s/s sw. you have is likely from an stx, Ultra etc. The yellow was to control trim on some models. It's a big switch overall.

    IMO the 2nd best Bilge on the market is the Rotary 3 way switch. Blowsion & someone else makes it. same thing from like 3 co's.
    These are about $35, waterproof, etc.

    TIP: mount it on the left side so you dont have to left of throttle to turn on/off. I wire it so middle is off, Left & Right position are on.

    Raider I went with this switch because it is an aluminum body and is not very tall which I can put in the exact same place as the existing switch:

    We will see if it holds up as well as the prior switch did. BTW I did put the Blowsion switches for the Superjet (horizontal under the Yamaha start/stop switch) and the 550sx (horizontal under the Kawasaki start/stop switch).
