Thread: Bucking

  1. #1


    Will somebody explain to me exactly what "bucking" is and what causes it? I keep seeing it referenced in the threads and do not quite understand what it means.

    Bucking is an issue for people riding Yamaha pwc's. It happens when you have the idea of selling your Yamaha and buying a Seadoo, the Yamaha's clever ecu sense your thoughts and throws you off (bucks you off)!
    On a serious note it is an issue more commonly found on the FZR/FZS range of Yamaha pwc's. Their is a sticky in this forum for you to read all about it and the solution is to change your intake grate to a more suitable item.

    its when you ride at wot and let off the throttle of a fzr fzs. the ski starts to wriggle and become unstable like a bucking bronco hence the name. alot have been injured when this happens. changing the grate for an after market one cures the issue.
