    FZS getting a pull to the left @ WOT

    I'm getting a pull to the left @ wot on the FZS...it has been noticeable at the 80mph mark. It reminds me of the GPR's pull over 80. At 84 and being at the back of the ski, it definitely wants to go left. I checked the stock rideplate (no spacer) and intake grate they measure straight..stock sponsons. Is this an acceptable phenomena or am I missing something. I did a search and can't find what I'm looking for. Maybe the nozzle needs to be centered? I just did a bend on the prop, needed more rpm's and am looking to find the left pull before I go back out. Thanks in advance.

    Ever had your transom plate off?? The fz's often have transom plate alignment issues right out of the factory. Not sure if it will cause it to pull, but worth a look.

    Putting in a modded 160mm transom as we speak...this has to be rideplate/intake/handling oriented I would imagine. It definitely pulls left, no doubt about it.

    Thats the same thing I was thinking. If the transome plate is not exactly square with the hull, It'll be like a car needing a front end alignment.

    Also make sure your steering nozzle is centered exactly.

    Fixed! It was the rideplate...should have known better. In other news I am crushing the local drag races...it's not even close with any Sea Doo RXP or FZR stage 2. Heck, I'm even giving them head starts...this 160mm combo is freaking amazing.

    I let a guy who had the 2013 RXP ride the Fireball and he came back saying that it was too fast and crazy for him...I rode his ski and I actually really like the C3 hull, it turns like a mofo and is the best Sea Doo hull I've ever ridden besides the XPL's. They still need another cylinder to compete with me though.

    Yup..I noticed that too..I could just shoot you Coco for that dadgum pump tunnel reinforcement...good Lord that was a pain. It took me 7 hours to get it done! But it's done. My back hurt, my neck hurt...heck I even think my eyelids hurt.

    But it will save your ski from being a coral reef!

    Glad you figured the left pull out was contributed to dragging your left leg in the water....
