    FZS with passengers ..?

    I'm looking for info on the Fzs ability to handle passengers. It says it a three person but how stable is it. I'm ridding in lake Champlain in VT it can get rough at times. I would like to get a Yamaha and i dont want the FX. but also looking at a RXT260. It would be for Wife Kid and me. Any info would help..
    I've done a lot of reading but would like some input from people that know...

    I wouldn't ride with 3 people on my fzs.
    It handles 2 pretty good.
    I guess its got a lot to do with the weight of the passengers.
    I ride 3 up better on my 11 rxtx.

    2 adults and a kid on a Fzs no problem! I'm 280 and my wife is 120 and we rode with our 5 year old no problem!

    With the stock ride plate it's fine, but I have the VX plate for speed and it's not as good with a passenger. Our other FZS has the same plate but my son says it actually rides better with a passenger, so who knows.

    Why don't you check out the new 2012 FX SHO? That's the platform you want for extra stability and carrying passengers, in my opinion. I have spent some time on the RXT-X 260 and it's also a very good ski for passengers, but you can't get a 5 year warranty like the Yamaha.

    That's exactly the same riding that I bought my FZS for, though Im only pushing 250... , your other riders are exactly the same.

    For one I didn't like the looks of the FX. I like the racer look and I will not always have passenger on the ski. I need something for the family and something playful for me...
