    Steering HELP! Not going straight!!!

    I have had a my 03 GP1300R for about a month. Each time I have had it out to the lake I have noticed that I have to turn my handlebars to the right to get it to go straight. I have measured back at the nozzle to make sure that is the same both left and right and it is, is this a sign of a really misaligned ride plate???? It still has the stock plate but anything is possible.

    Welcome to GH. The back nozzle might be straight but the bars are out! Get the nozzle straight with your caliper, then sit on the ski and look at the bars.

    Get the bars straight first, then adjust the nozzle.

    I am also new to this site. I don't know much about your jetski but I do know that my gp1200 is doing the same thing. I figured out that hte problem is caused by the right trim tab being ripped/broken off.

    If your ski is missing one of the trim tabs that could be the same problem. I would give it a look
