    give more stability at high speed to a RXT X 260 RS

    I'm looking to give more stability and poise to my RXT X 260 RS model eurpean at high speed. This weekend I had the opportunity to test the Yamaha FZR and this seemed much more stable.
    The FZR had a plaque and a check for R & D but had the series sponson.
    Both bikes tested in the open sea with some waves of 0.30 to 0.50 meters
    For now I charge for my RXT X 260 RS water entry of R & D to see if something thus improved the stability of my pwc.
    any more advice?
    thanks

    You could try the new RXT-X 260 Sponsons & Trim Tabs that come on the 2012 models, other than that set you trim just below 1/2 and max out.

    It all comes down to rider ability in the rough stuff. You have a slight advantage with the longer ski.

    Adjustable Rear Sponsons

    An efficient design that improves cornering stability. 3-position adjustable for your skill level and riding environment: higher for a more playful freeride experience or lower for more aggressive turning. Winglet feature enhances lean angles during turning

    sponsons are these?
    Someone has tested and give more stability at sea?
    I need help please, I want more stability in my RXT X 260 RS at high speed.
    thanks

    Those sponsons are for 2012's is that what you have?

    WHen in the rough chop do you have the steering raised as high as it will go and are standing up with your feet about 2/3 back?

    As posted above trim should be 1/2 or less, IMO.

    I don't run offshore but have run some very rough lakes 70-75 mph and this works for me.

    I know you are going to call me crazy but I usually run with my girlfriend back, she loves the jet ski as much or more than me, speed does not scare you, but that's the problem when riding two high speed and the bike becomes unstable, despite playing with the trim in search of better navigation.

    You identified your own problem and the solution is to get HER a ski for herself!

    To right! These ski's may be built to carry 3 people but when riding 3 up the handling characteristics change a lot!
