Just another great Geo adventure!...
First off I want to thank God for being alive or not seriously hurt...
Now, what happened today adds to my disaster list with my ski....
About 10 minutes into my riding I was flying at like 55-60mph or so and hit a wake, my finger somehow slipped the throttle and hit the second wake head on, it was like hitting a brick wall. Immediately I hit the steering wheel and hood and fly off the ski at that speed. Hurt like a MOFO I get out of the water feeling a nasty pain in my neck and legs ad I hit the steering wheel with it
I inspect for damage and only find that the front bumper cover thing flew off and the red rubber stiper was half way out...I get to the ramp to pick up a friend and when I open the hood to put her bag in I the pin that locks it in place was broken, I then saw that the hood was broken and the steering wheel base craked! The steering wheel moves up and down as if it was a tilt one ....The base, or whatever it's called is broken
SOOOOO.....How much am I gonna have to spend on this? Hopefully I dont need a new hood and can replace the part that locks in place even though the side of it is broken....And the steering wheel? Is that ALL ONE PIECE or is the base separate from the actual steering wheel?

dude....seriously...i don't even know what to say
It just can't be luck at this point any more.
you'd better start looking for the common denominator, cause right now it's just you.
glad you weren't hurt seriously!
I'm beginning to wish I was your mechanic.

is the steering head the same on the 2004 GTX sc`s compared to the 2005 RXT`s???
I have my stock steering head if it works out for ya, someone has to know, the only thin i don`t have is the plastic thing that the cable adjuster attaches to...PR...
