    2013 rxp-x steering

    I am having issues with my rxp-x going straight...seems like I have too keep them turned to the right slightly.

    I took it back to the dealer but I think they half **ed checked it.

    How hard is it to check and fix myself?

    Go to a different dealer and have them check the alignment of the engine. This could be a much bigger problem then what you may think.

    Seems like a few of them every now and then come from the factory miss aligned. This can wear your carbon ring out quick.

    dang...well that's not good.

    Woulld it do this at cruising...seems at cruising it does fun. Get up to about 20mphish it want's to turn, but then again 40 plus it straightens out.

    The T3 hull does react quickly to weight distribution. So its not uncommon to feel some lean or steering correction is needed to go straight.

    When your cruising at 45MPH on calm water does it require you to correct the steering to go straight? If it does there is an issue. If not chances are everything is ok and its just more or less you getting use to the hull.

    How many riding hours you have on the T3 hull?

    There is a fair amount of current where I ride and I have noticed when I am going down the current that I have to steer (very) slightly to the left and when I go up the current, I have to steer (very) slightly to the right.
