    SXR 800 - suggestions to correct teetering and porpoising?

    Picked up a 2004 all stock SXR800 recently after having a 91 JS440 that the kids were fighting over. At about 25 to 30 mph, the 800 ski seems to want to teeter side to side with just the most miniscule shift or chop, plus it seems to porpoise quite a bit at those same speeds even in relatively calm waters. Anybody experienced this and have a suggestion to resolve?

    a longer ride plate will minimize the porpoise but not completely get rid of it the side to side motion could just be your standing position

    check over at PWCtoday.com, they have more stand up riders, or see the links over on the right and click on the X-H20, they are all stand up guys over there... good luck
