    GTR hood adjustment

    when closed the hood of my GTR is shifting to the right (when sitting on the ski) and causing the left side to rub right above the gas cap. when the hood is open it has zero play.

    i dont see or feel a way to adjust it but i folded a wash cloth and stuck it on the left side to see if i could get it to line up correctly and that worked with no play. emailed hyrdoturf to see if i can buy a small square of sticky turf to use.

    not sure what else to look at or try.... suggestions?

    Have you tried to loosen the hinge bolts on the ski side (not the hood side), then adjust it and re-tighten? On all the older skis there is a little slop in these holes for that type of adjustment. They are usually 10mm head bolts with a 10mm nut on the bottom.

    you are talking about #7.. at the front of the ski right? its gotta be that or the latch. there is no play at all when the hood is open.

    The #3 bolts are the ones i would loosen to make a side to side adjustment. That will allow you to rotate #7 slightly to the left to gain clearance with the hood up top by the gas cap.
