I read the upgrade instructions at:
but there's not mention of how to reconnect the battery cables. Since the batteries are disconnected now, I don't remember how they were originally connected, but I think they were connected in parallel. I think this means that each red battery cable is supposed to carry 6 volts on it. I can't really connect both 6-volt red (positive) cables together and connect up to a 12-volt battery, can I?
What am I misunderstanding?

If they were previously wired in parallel, then you should have no problem attaching both hot wires to the single positive post, but they will both be carrying 12 volts, not 6.

I just assumed that they would use one large standard battery if they needed 12 volts. But why would SeaDoo doo this? What's the advantage?
Does each engine have an alternator? Is there a separate charging circuit for each? By connecting them together am I risking both charging circuits if one of them goes south?

I'm NEVER going to remove the oil tank again if possible, though. It was really tough to get the oil filler hose to the tank back onto both flanges and tightened down. I'll try removing the exhaust system, first. It's gotta be easier.
