    Left hand turn rev drop

    Our 300x is now box stock with no scom and stock ride plate. Everything is ok until it goes left and then the revs drop to 5500 any ideas

    The nature of the clockwise prop spin, when turning left you are fighting against the water coming into the pump, when turning right you are using that as an advantage. Left turn lower RPM, right turn Higher RPM.

    5500 though is way low however. I have noticed a few hundred rpm loss during a sweeping turn but never what you are seeing. as Nicjak said, "how hard are you turning"

    Since some people have no sense of humor..... why not start with the obvious thing
    Is the throttle cable routing is not correct......
    A bit more info like what rpms will it do when steering straight ahead.....?
    Is it under warranty ?

    I hate to be technical but I think we should use proper nautical terms, port or starboard, because otherwise it gets confusing.
