    Rxtx 270 pulling to the right

    Hi fellas have this strange problem with my ski it pulled to
    the right at speeds over 80 ks you have to keep pressure
    on the left bar to go strait it also washes of speed
    if I let the bars find the natural level the ski picks up Speed
    but traces in a right ark untill you have to put pressure on the left
    bar to keep it in a strait line been atdealersd at it 3 times no still can't workout
    whats wrong ???????
    Had no issues untill the drive shaft had to be replaced then it was fine
    for a few weeks no its in rideable over 80 ks as I'm constantly
    fighting the steering to keep it on a strait line sorry about typos
    im on my iPhone and can't go back to fix them for some stupid reason

    Easy fix. Raise the iBR gate per Owners Manual. Adjust the steering nozzle cable a couple of turns by loosening the locking nut, put a couple of turns on set screw, retighten locking nut, go and test.

    You can do this with the gate in the upper position, just tight fit to get your wrench in there (first pic). The 2nd picture shows a clear shot of the steering cable (right side) with the iBR gate removed and steering nozzle removed.

    check your intake grate very carefully as it may be slightly bent. I have seen this on skis and it only pulls the ski or steers it at higher speeds

    This has been at the dealer 3 times for the steering problem
    I have recorded the bar position to go strait it's about ten deg to left
    Out of water if I place it 10 deg to left then look at nozzle
    The nozzle in turned slightly left in this position I go strait
    ??? It's got me stuffed and as usual the dealer wants to wipe his hands
    Off the problem when they fixed my pump bolt issues they said
    They had never head of the bolts conning loose BRP has a lot to answer for

    My ski does the same. I played with the steering cable and verified all the pump bolts are secure. The problem still exist.

    Follow JT's & Scott's advice......get a Shop Manual. The steering is adjustable at 2 locations: at the steering noozle and under the handlebar inside the hull.

    The attachment is for a 2008 RXTX but should be the same or similar to your ski.
