    Skier tow bar for 98 yamaha 1200 XL: where?

    Anyone know of where I can get a tow bar setup for this machine? I'd like to get the rope out of the water while tubing the kids. The only thing I saw was something on Overtons for 350 bucks. Too much. Any other ideas?

    Jig,

    I have the same problem. I bought another stainless u-bolt with backing plate. Going to mount it close up to the seat like the new skis. Also saw that "booster ball" by Sportstuff. Set it mid-line and it keeps the towrope up out of the water in addition to acting as a shock-absorber.
    I won't be taking the skis for a couple of weeks, but I'll try to add another post to let you know how it goes.
