    Crazy question

    How are you guys doing. First post so please have some mercy..lol..
    I have an 2003 GP1300r and dont have the owners manual. On the left hand side of the handlebars, what is the lever for. It looks like it moves but mines seems to be stuck all theway down. Would that affect the ski from starting. Is that like a gear selector or something.. new to this and not sure.

    Were should i start to get it to move. clue less, couldnt search because i dint know what it was called.

    Thanks for the help.

    Download an Owners Manual and save it on your computer.

    Yeah that is a crazy question The ski does not have neutral once started it moves forward unless something is wrong with the drive line the new seadoos have neutral but your ski does not, right side throttle left side steering nozzle trim if after pulling the trigger it wont move the cable is probably rusted and frozen you need a new cable somewhere in the trim system you need to trace it down remember when running fast it will be very hard to turn because of the jet thrust going thru the nozzle.

    open the front hood, remove the bin and there is a lever inside on the left side of the ski (if facing forward), see if that's rusted up
