    Steering/Handling Issues 2002 4-TEC GTX

    It seems that my ski when accelerating wants to pull hard to either bout left or right. What's puzzling is that it does not always happen, sometimes it steers fine. All Steering linkage looks good and the steering assist paddles appear fine....Any ideas would be greatly appreciated....thanks in advance......Click image for larger version.

    +1, the OPAS paddles maybe sticking in down postition. Best thing to is block them up in the up postition. Also check hoses inside ski that go to the OPAS on either side. At the pump there is a hose on top of the exit nozzle that feeds OPAS. The fitting at the nozzle has a screen in it that may need cleaned.

    Is the ski taking on water? Check those OPAS hoses for sure inside ski.

    Let me add one other to look at. Check the plastic nut holding steering cable at pumpshoe.
