    00 PRO 785 Trim Display On MFD Does Not Match Trim Position?

    I am running an 8 PIN MFD out of an older SL model or something (not sure) on my 00 PRO 785. The trim gauge display on the MFD does not match the actual trim position. Its never in the same position in relation to each other either. I have held it both up and down until it clicks. Is this because the 785 has a quick trim motor compared to an SL? If so any way around it?

    you are right, it is because the pro has a quicker trim motor..only way to fix it is.. get a new mfd or switch out the trim to the slower one..

    or you can just ride it and figure out where the positions are on your mfd

    The positions are never the same (can't tell by the display where the nozzle actually is) because the nozzle moves faster than the display. The only way I can see doing it is to get them synced in the neutral position and then finding out where on the display is full up and down and not holding the button longer than that. Make sense?

    Thats how it is. You need the MFD designed for the PRO's faster trim motor, no other way to change it.

    Yep, or that... But thats a poor solution if you ask me.

    Ryanbgb22 has this issue now on his SLX, and I dont think its that big of a deal. Id probably just leave it.

    get the nozzle in the middle and wait till noon and unplug the mfd ,wait a minute and plug it back in and then start triming up and counting seconds,,,
    "like 4 seconds from middle is top ect"
    I know its not perfect but i never realy look at my trim i just keep my thumb there and adjust every 2 seconds depending on the ski's ride not what the display says
