    61x temp senor wires, any harm in running in limp mode?

    I was thinking of ways to let the kids burble around at low rpm to let them get a bit of experience controlling the craft without getting enough speed up to be too dangerous.
    If I was to fit a keyswitch that would short out the water temp sensor that would trigger limp mode and a 3000rpm rev limit. Would deliberately running in this mode do any damage to the engine?

    It won't hurt the engine. The only thing I can think of is "possibly" it may eventually damage to the CDI. I have seen them get stuck in limp mode.

    What about making up a throttle stop, to just limit throttle movement?

    I thought about a throttle stop, but an electrical keyswitch would be quicker and easier to switch between modes.

    Like Zigler says, just zip tie a stopper/spacer on the Grip just under the Throttle Lever.
