    UMI on RXP

    So has anyone ever installed UMI and regretted it ? I splurged a little on my project RXP and cant stand it. The handlebars are way to far forward and the bars have to be straight while the hood is being closed. I did order some 3.5" Rox risers to help pull the bars up and back a little but havent tried them yet.

    Just curious how others feel about it.

    Its great for closed course racing or burning up the twisties where we want the weight more forward. For the average rec rider that likes to be back further and more concerned about top speed they're not so great but once you get them setup right for you and get used to them I think you'll enjoy the tight smooth steering. The hood deal is a pia. IMO, it's hard to beat the x-steering set-up for an aggresive rec rider.

    You will love it, as Speed said the X setup is good for a aggresive rec rider but the UMI is better in my opinion apart from the issue with the hood and having to have the bars straight to get the hood up.

    Problems solved (I hope). Added 3.5" Rox risers. They are almost identical to the X bars now. Probably will want to move them up a little bit more but because they are tilted back it clears the hood no problem. I wish they made a 2.5" but oh well.

    Anyone have a clue on a good way to run the cable and wiring so its not so fugly.

    I like the raised look you got there...I like mine but I have not ridden a ski (that I remember anyway) with the stock steering. On a side note...I agree; my only gripe is the damn bars have to be straight to not hit the hood. Im already missing some paint

    Had UMI bars and then went to the X system. By far the best.
