Well took the top of and when I putted it back on yesterday I saw that the locking mechanism for the main harness was broken (the big connecter, the small is fine)... Now it's duct taped in place but seems a little loose. What should I do? Will it be ok to ride this way and if it somehow comes loose while riding, will it stop by pulling the key?

Here is a pic of the duct taped version:


And here is the broken tab/locking mechanism (male connecter):


Female connecter:



I tried the zip tie/ cable tie idea, and it works really great! That thing will probably do it!:) thanks!
Pics:


And finally, while looking in there I noticed this metal piece at the bottom of the ski. What is it? Something the dealer dropped when they did the 50hr service? (My finger to give you some idea of the size)

The rectangular nut looks like it came from the battery post. They probably lost it unhooking the battery and just put another one in.

As for the plug. You should be able to order a new plug. You will also need to get the extraction tool for that type of plug. The wires should be able to be removed from the broken plug and transferred to a new one without putting new ends on the wires.


In the service manual, they show you how to remove the wires from the connector.

Look under "Connector Information" in the service manual.

Yeah I agree, looks like it came from the battery post. Can I find the service manual on the Internet?

I can verify that it is nut to hold the battery terminal on the battery. So if you are going to remove your battery for the winter, after disconnecting the terminals, PUT THE SCREWS BACK IN THE BATTERY POST BEFORE REMOVING THE BATTERY. It took me almost an hour to find the battery nut in the hull of the ski, and it is not magnetized. TRUST ME.

Downloads the service manual for 15$ good to have it if any thing happens. But my other questions, will it stop by pulling the key if the cables somehow comes loose? And if it doesn't stop, how can I stop it?

As said above good advice
I say the dealer probably lost it and couldn't find it and replaced it


With the zip tie I would run it longways on the connector from top to bottom so half way on the connectors about 5th wire push it through and the same place on bottom then tighten not to hard just enough to stop it coming apart due to weight and vibrations
