Quick shift trim system
I recently purchased a 96 Yamaha waveraider with the 3 position QSTS, but can find no info about this. Can anyone tell me about the 3 settings?

If it works, pulling it back lifts the nose of the ski bringing it higher out of the water giving less stability but more top speed, putting it in the middle lowers the nose a bit which gives better handling but reduces top speed, finally all the way forward drops the nose of the ski which slows the top speed of the ski down but provides a better handling craft. Best to play with it and get a feel for the ski, but I think the manual recommends not changing position above 3000 rpms (not sure on rpms, someone else might have that information)

Hm, didn't know that about the RPM limit for changing the position. Good to know.

Huh i didnt no about the rpm thing either. I always just try to muscle it whenever im goin along at WOT but i mostly ride with the nose up. Once you get used to the ski handling doesnt matter to much i dont think.

Page 4-16 in manual. It is 3000 rpm, thought so but couldn't remember if I was confusing it with my 1300 manual....

Thanks for the info!
Out of curiosity, do you have a digital copy of the owner's manual?

mine never seemed to make a difference. I took mine off and put a drop nozzle kit on it. Mainly so I could run different grips. The factory replacement grip for the quick trim is around 100 bucks just for that side. Mine had seen better days and I was not going to pay that price for that grip. I can drop the nozzle quickly this way with the pull of the lever if I decide too. It does not move the nozzle as much as the factory one how ever.

I have the digital copy of the 95 Wave Venture but not the raider. I have the ragged out old hard copy which came with the raider when I bought a month ago.
I will probably score a wave raider manual off ebay in the near future. 5 bucks isn't too bad, but the 7 dollars shipping sucks...LOL

I'm new to PWC and am looking to familiarize myself with the maintenance of them. I have a service manual but cannot locate an Owners Manual.. any help would be appreciated.
