    Steering Stem switch???

    Anyone know what the switch on the bottom of a 2004 r12x steering stem does?

    the switch is depressed when the handlebars are turn max left and right.

    Here is a pic.

    It is the OTAS switch (Off throttle Assisted Steering)
    It activates when the steering is turned full lock with no throttle, it supplies short burst off throttle to assist in turning the ski with no throttle applied by the rider.
    It is an accident avoidence system, mandentory on all skis.

    yep I disconnected that 1st thing. When in waves I want to give it throttle when I want to. I just unmounted it and zip tied it up outta the way. You can test it by letting off the throttle and turning the bars all the way left or right. It applies a bit of throttle.

    Sorry to revive a slightly old thread, but if you are in waves even with the OTAS system still operational how does this prevent you from applying and having throttle when you need it? Thanks

    It doesn't prevent you from applying throttle. It has the potential to apply throttle at an inopportune time (such as apexing a wave),
