Hey,
I know this is a known issue with the bubble control panels. I am looking for someone that has swapped out the rocker switch panel that skeeter has as a replacement. Would this be something i could do or should i have a boat shop do it? Also, what do you think of the new rocker panels? Skeeter gave me these two part#s:

91112322
91111092

Any advise is appreciated!

I am about to take this on as well. I am lucky and only needing to order the control panel and the bezel. I have been told that it is just plug and play. I

Recently did this to my step-dad's 2006 zx250. We built a panel and ordered custom rockers to make it our self instead of buying from skeeter. We were pleased with it. I will post of picture of the final result. I have a spreadsheet with all the wire colors as well if anyone needs it. Feel free to call me 405-317-0721 if you have any questions about it.

I had a 2006 zx225 and had to place them and it wasnt tuff at all. The new rocker switches come with a diagram thats super easy to follow. The worse part for me was cutting the insert hole bigger. I wound up using a dremel tool to do it. I used a dry erase marker to outline the size of the new panel on the dash so I didnt cut it too big. If I can do the install anybody can!

i actually have a good panel -- i did mine because something in the control box on the firewall would stick every once in a while (it would work perfect a hundred times and then not --there must be relays in the box because you can feel em click when its working correctly} -- bought mine from fun and sun and was not to bad to install

I know it sucks to spend the money, but at the end of the day if its not whats causing your problems its going to break anytime so you might as well put the new ones on and be done with it. Whats yours doing wrong? When mine went out it turned the power off on its own and turned the livewells on and off for no reason.

Just did it on my '06 ZX200. It's a panel with rocker switches, all marked nice and neat. As far as hooking up, it's plug and play.
There are a couple of extra wires so check everything out after you hook it up, but it's easy to take care of.
As far as install, you need to create your own mounting screws or studs. The new switch panel has none.
You have to order through a dealer, but it's not a big deal. Costs about $325.00.
