    iS drifting backwards in Neutral

    Enough to be a problem now. Is there any mechanical adjustment to the bucket that can be done?

    There is a setting in BUDS that shows the dealer if the gate is adjusted correctly so that Neutral is neutral.

    Get it hooked up to BUDS.

    The angle it goes in to neutral can then be addressed,

    Cool. Thx. I was one of the skis dropped by a faulty iCatch and had the bucket replaced. Too bad there isn't a user defined option.

    I had the same question with my new 2010 RXT X. I don't think you can adjust the system to give you a perfectly stationary position with neutral selected. I've found that the ski will creep forward or sometimes backward. I asked my dealer about this and he said there is no mechanical adjustment and the ECU controls the position of the gate.

    After some practice I've found that I can put the ski exactly where I want it when approaching the gas dock in our marina. I don't find a bit of creep to be a problem. User adjustment would be nice though.

    Your dealer is wrong... Tell him to read the service manual. Starting on Page 421. (2010 RXT) It will tell him what to check, how to do it, and how to hook up and reads BUDS.

    Thanks for the details! I'm not having problems docking, but she is moving fast enough backwards in neutral that it's sometimes hard to tell the difference between N and R. My big deal is the milling. I hate to constantly make adjustments to keep it still.

    No way thats correct. mine sits still. it WILL turn in a circle but it doesn't go forward/backward.

    It wasn't so bad with the first bucket, but this is a replacement and it got worse. I'll get in touch with my dealer with your information and keep you updated on what happens.
