    Handling improvement question

    Took my PX out for a slow cruise yesterday with my brother (on his FZS), and kept the speed around 25-30 mph where that weird side-leaning thing is most noticeable. It's like the ski leans to one side or the other, and you cant recover without accelerating or turning into the leaning side. Would adjusting the sponsons help this? Intake grate? Another beer?

    I think everybody has this problem with T3 hull. It's worse when 2up I noticed. Try trimming up. Sponsons No grate No another beer Yes!

    Same here. My solution is to accelerate to 30-35 - until it stops to lean, then slow down to whatever speed and it stays straight/balanced. Seems to work for me.

    If 2 up is the worst, where is the best? Just wondering where to set it for when friends want to drive my ski (with the learner key)

    Under 30MPH you'll get a lean until you and your rider know how to compensate for it before it happens. My girl and I when we first got the ski it was annoying. By the end of the season we had no issues what so ever with two up. T3 hull reacts to weight distribution very quickly.

    You'll get the hang of it.

    Instead of following the other person at 25-30, you may want to lead at 35+. The person you were following most likely knows your skis weak point and was screwing with you to show off his Yamaha's ability to low speed cruise.
