    Loose steering on SHO

    Anyone else had any problems with their steering being loose on the SHO? How loose would it have to be before tightening it up? Thanks

    Every Yamaha I have ever gone up to and wiggled the handle bars on has had a very little bit of play. I never notice it when I'm riding the ski, but I thought mine was messed up so starting checking all the FX's, FZ's and they all do it! So does my 2004 GPR. Wouldnt sweat it.

    Got it also. Went to the dealer but they have no clue. Nobody noticed before...
    It difference per ski. Mine pretty loose, it doesn't feel good when riding.
    Took a look in the service manual and tried to disassamble the steering unit, but it can't be adjusted. The bushings are sort of fixed.
    I think it can only get worse...

    Wiggle the steering nozzle. There is where your play is IMO.
