    2007 GTX feels "loose"

    My 2007 Sea-Doo GTX (155) feels very loose from about 35-45 MPH. It feels like the rear end is slipping left-right. I ride in the Albemarle sound, so I'm always in at least some chop. This is noticeable when I'm going in a straight line.

    I've not ridden other Sea-Doos, so I don'[t know if this is something specific on my ski, or if it is general to these skis. Is this why folks remove the OPAS?

    The opas paddles can have an affect similar to what your describing in chop.

    I took the handle bars to the nads a few times riding hard in chop with opas. When coming out of the water, even a slight turn of the bars can change your tract quick.

    Mine have been gone for awhile now, never looked back. I have the RE Bo's, no complaints.


    Just for peace of mind you might want give everything a once over, check the intake grate, ride plate, ect make sure none of the bolts are loose or broken.

    If you take them off you will feel like you lost 100 lb off the back...
