RXP-X 260 steering issues?
I remember reading some posts from guys stating that their RXP-X 260's seemed to steer one direction or another even when the handle bars were straight. Just curious if any one having this problem has noticed their ski leaning slightly to one side when floating still in the water with the motor off?

i think mine is just a tad lower on the left at idle, not bad though maybe 1/4" maybe when the waterbox is full of water from idling for awhile it will lean a little, i wouldnt worry about it unless its drastic

I just finished the 10 hour break-in period on my 2012 RXP-X 260. The ski is very fast and I am mostly happy but I am having an issue with the steering. I have to turn the bar slightly to the left while at full speed to keep the ski straight. Additionally, when going slow (~20 MPG) the ski will barely turn left but will turn right just fine. The only way to make the ski turn left at slow speed is punch it, which make the ski lean hard left. I think if I adjust the steering to straighten the bars at full speed this help the slow turning as well.
Anybody else have the same problem?

No solutions to this problem? My 14 rxp x 260 is doing the same. . Pulls to the right and leans left bad when two people are on it

I'm taking it to the local dealer tomorrow. Really depressed I'm having so many issues with the first time ride. . On top of the steering issue my glove box won't stay shut. Any thoughts? And is water supposed to get behind that clear plastic piece on the top?
