    Forward/Reverse lever isnt smooth? Grinding Noise?

    After addressing some steering play issues on my 300X i noticed the forward and reverse lever is not smooth and almost feels like its grinding. I cant imagine it changing if it was in the water and again i didnt have a new 300x to compare it to. I just got the ski sunday and have not had the chance to ride it yet. The dealer i purchased it from is in california and im in las vegas so taking it back down to them isnt a option Ski is brand new 0 hrs... Think they could have damaged something loading it onto the trailer? Was something not greased ?

    I added some grease to the two surfaces the first day I got the ski home. It was one of the first thing I noticed too. I helped alot just to add some lube. Oh yeah, The dragging action you are feeling is right below the handle. You can fix it without removing anything.
