    My 300X's Problems?

    Hi Guys,
    My 2012 300x has a few issues that with some at first i thought i wasn't doing something right or it just happened to everyone.
    Anyway the things i have issues with is firstly my cruise control and one touch 5 mile button aren't working. Ive been doing everything like it says to do in the manual. The second problem is a vibration that seems to comes on when i corner hard, im not to sure if everyone gets this or its just me. The last possible problem is when in eco mode im still getting similar top speeds around 100kmph i was just wondering what everyone else was getting in eco mode.
    The ski has 39 hours on it and the problems have all been there from the start
    Thanks

    Join us on a ride. We're out almost every weekend. Happy to swap my 300x with yours so you can feel the difference.

    We'll be out around Pittwater and Ettalong this Sunday, 28 degrees C. Send me a PM if you can make it out and I'll let you know where we meet.

    Cheers, Mal.

    sounds like operator error to me , as it its easy to do it wrong , how are you trying to activate the cruise and what do you do when u hear the beeps ?

    the 5 mile button only barely raises the revs from idle so its very easy to miss it when it activates ,

    yes some have mentioned a vibration

    either way Mal will be able to show you his and you can compare sizes 1 day

    my guess from the very vague info and vid.
    1. you need to push the cruise button hand hold the throttle on at the same time a quick positive push is all that is needed, once activated you can squeeze the throttle hard and use your thumb to increase or decrease speed.
    2. the no wake mode push and hold the button without any throttle.
    3. the vibration is normal guessing its the water against the chines and sponsons.
    4. your eco mode is also normal.
    5. YOU DONT HAVE ANY PROBLEMS!! maybe recheck the operator
    6. has the exhaust filter been changed out or checked? and i still think you have a boost leak or belt slipping.

    Hi Nick,
    Yes ive done all that for the cruise control and no wake button, so i know no it is definately broken.

    Thanks
