Trim options for X4 hulls
My VTS module quit working some time ago. I now use alligator clips and connect the motor directly to the battery to bump it up and then reverse polarity to bring it down. It works but its getting old..
I remembered from an HX that I owned years ago a dial in the back of the ski that allowed you to adjust trim manually. Is something like this adaptable to the X4? If so, what modifications are involved? What skis came with this manual trim setup besides the HX?
It seems to me that if it worked, everyone would be doing it because a manual trim setup like that is the most reliable thing out there... and I havent heard anything about it on this board.. but I admit that I dont come in the 2-stroke section as much as I used to and I have not searched it.
Are there aftermarket manual trim systems?
LMK if you guys have any ideas...

I dont care enough about the ski to invest in a new one- if I remember correctly they are $200 or more- and I dont want to buy a used one and have it burn out again.
Do you have a link to the $50 one? Ill consider it.
I would still prefer to go to something manual that I dont have to worry about or fuss with ever again.

if thats the case and you don't want to purchase a new unit, then hook up a 3 position momentary switch and mount it on your hull.

im pretty sure that what you are talking about is on the older X4 models. Like the SPs (?). Last year when I had my XP, my dad's friend had a teal SP (94/95 I think) and I remember looking at it and it had a dial next to the pump. If that's the case I would assume you could do something like that on the XP, maybe its a whole new pump setup though which would make it difficult...
