    96XP Steering Cable with UMI

    I am installing a UMI steering system on my ski, and I noticed there is some drag on the cable when turning. Did any of you guys with this setup on your skis have to move the cable around? I noticed mine is ziptied to a standoff on the hull near the carbs. Not quite sure if this is the stock location which may be why I am having issues.

    BTW adjusting the nozzle center is a bitch! I must have spent half an hour messing with it and its still not close enough. I am getting there but now I am finding its getting some resistance from the cable which is what is worrying me.

    You will have to mess with that knob that is threaded on your steering cable in order to straighten out your steering. It's easy. The knob inside the hull and the fitting that is on the end of the cable attached to the nozzle.

    Yeah, I got into it more last night. Seadoo service manual said to use a straight edge across the nozzle and measure to the hull. I got it straightened out. It looks straight, but I guess I will find out

    I had to cut the tie straps and move the steering cable so that it runs up next to the oil tank instead of around it to relieve the pressure on the line
