    nozzle bushings

    96 sl900 How much play is there suppost to be up and down for the nozzle. It seems to have more than it should. Maybe an 1/8th to a 1/4 inch of play. This might be why my steering felt a little tight under full throttle. I have not had a chance to take my skis out since I have had trailer issues with the DMV (long story). I will get my new vin plate and title either monday or tuesday and be able to take them out.

    I'd say that's normal.

    Please define steering feels tight at WOT.

    We had another member snap his steering cable when trying to make a turn. He ran aground and fortunately wasn't hurt much.

    I wouldn't suggest riding if you have steering issues, espcially since there's no brakes on these skis.

    it is nice and smooth sitting on the trailer. I was just out there cleaning it. I hope to try it out again this week. Its been since last july since i was able to ride it. I will be carefull until i fully check it out on the water.

    Wouldn't hurt to fully lube all your control cables.
