    how does the FZS achieve 500lb capacity?

    how does the FZS..same hull as FSR..achieve the extra passenger capacity? Does it affect handling? I'm wondering why buy the R if the S gives me the flexibility to carry more wt for other things like fishing etc...

    anyone know? They both handle the same, right ? (when i did a search , the review thread stated they ran the same and handled the same)

    thanks
    Dave

    AFAIK it is only due to the change in the seat between the two.

    the rear seat gives it 170 lbs of capacity? I notice the sho and ho are the sames dimensions.. yet they are supposed to be better in chop.

    I know with the honda's..the F and R have same hull dims but drastically diffent v angle..the R is more aggressive and better at turning..and it happens to rollover easier. Dimensions dont tell the whole story. Thats why i was asking...because it appears the hull charateristics of the FZR and S are the same.

    So maybe the R is good for 529 also but because it's seat isn't big enough for three then it's downrated to 360?

    I'm thinkin' i could get the R and it would hold a boatload of extras if i wanted to take it camping or on a trip...is my thinking right?

    Nothing to do with hull or any improvements. Legal/Regulation stuff determined by the advertised rider capacity of the ski. FZS and FZR are the exact same ski just with different trim. Think RXT and GTX Limited...
