why does my ski "pull"
the best way i can put it is if my ski were a car it would need an alignment... i almost find my self struggling with it to keep it straight.. i went out yesterday and had to keep the handle bars slight left and i felt like if i let the bars go straight i would start curving to the right. does that make any sense?? i recently removed the OPAS for the riva block offs and i kind of remember the ski doing it before i did this and after.
i just seriously dont know if its mental or if its really happening.
anyone have a similar problem?

Have you checked the nozzle to see if it is straight when your handlebars are straight ? Might need to adjust your steering.

I've had a pump bolt break before and caused a ski to pull.
Check the other bolts that hold it together also.

Are you running an R&D grate? Mine pulls to the right so i have to hold it left a bit. Im told its normal with the R&D grates.

This is a 5 minute fix.
Get a 10mm and 11mm wrench, remove the steering linkage bolt #53 at the right side of the steering nozzle. Loosen nut # 51, turn the turnbuckle #52 about 2-3 turns turns, retighten #51 nut, go test it.

Somebody didn't properly adjust it when it was replaced or the factory didn't do it.
GET R DONE...
