    Loss of Steering 260X

    Lost steering today. Handlebars and nozzle turn independently. Broken cable? I was lucky because it was pouring rain but no wind and no chop with 15 miles to go. Ski ran surprisingly straight but with left pull as speed increased. I had to repeatedly correct by slowing, letting KSS take over which nosed me right, then back on throttle.

    There was a factory recall on the steering cable from Kawaski. Did you have yours checked ?

    I dont think so. Definitely not in last 3 years. I think cable is 2009 original.

    Yes, thats what it was. Picked up ski today. Got new cable courtesy of GTPP. Got great Kawi service.

    I actually cannot recall whether cable was replaced before under a recall. But, if so, its been a few years.

    My steering column is still frozen in up position and steering is a little stiff. Plan to ride tomorrow and then check for bushing wear. Still have my TBM steering sitting in garage so I have an option.
