    Why do I need to keep my handlebars turned to go straight?

    At idle speed, handle bars straight and even but as soon as I go up on plane I have to
    keep them turned to go straight. This normal a normal ski phenomenon because of the spinning
    thrust of the jet pump?

    Yes. You need to adjust it so the steering is straight. Disconnect it from the nozzle and line the handlebars in the straight position. Align the nozzle to it by adjusting the bolt at the end of the steering cable. It is the one that attaches to the nozzle. It make take a few adjustments. Shouldn't take too much.

    No No No No...Dont disconnect anything at the steerling nozzle. Look under the seat and see the plastic nut attached to the arm. You can take and give slack in the cable with that. Just loosen the two bolts a little then turn the nut. . Will search for a thread that discusses it.
