    You can't use the starter because the bilge will only run when you push the start button. Tie it into the battery with an inline fuse, no fire extinguisher necessary

    There should be a power wire to the starter, then a REM (Smaller gauge), The power wire should be hot all the time (Larger gauge), the REM Should energize the coil to pull the plunger (when you hit start), engaging the rotor.. In theory you could hit the Hot all the time wire, and ground on the starter case and it should work the same as hitting the Battery terminals.

    Re: Hooking your bilge straight to the stator?

    If you want it to run anytime the ski is running you need a latching relay I believe the Polaris lr22 relay is used for this purpose it senses AC voltage off of one leg of the stator and will run a 12v device. They used to come in the Polaris bilge pump kits.
    Y'all know me, still the same O.G. but I been low-key
    hated on by most these &^$$@s with no cheese, no deals and no G's, no wheels and no keys, no boats, no snowmobiles, and no skis, mad at me cause I can finally afford to provide my family with groceries

    WWSRD , What would Speed Racer do ?

    Well I have the rotary switch from blowsion installed and hooked up to the bilge.

    I had the bilge wired up to the starter like you talked about. It seems like the large red cable running from the starter to the battery would be hot all the time if itís hooked directly to the battery? In theory that red cable is just an extension of the positive terminal of the battery no?

    Just out of curiosity, why don't people run automatic bilge pumps on Ski's..? There must be a reason I can't think of.
