    FX Cruiser pulling to the right at high speed

    Anyone experience their 2017 FX Cruiser SVHO pulling hard to the right at high speeds? Its not the steering adjustment its the ski trying to turn to the right so we have to continually compensate by turning the handle bars to the opposite direction just to go straight which wears your arms out after a full hour of ocean cruising. Ride plate, impeller, sponsons all stock. only mods on this machine was adding a Lucky 13 pump cone.

    Have you checked under the ski for loose bolts, anything out of position?

    Also make sure both sponsons are firmly attached to the hull, no loose bolts, and are straight.

    Check that everything around both jet pump nozzles (pump nozzle and steering nozzle) is as it should be. That area was taken apart to install the Lucky 13 cone, so there is a chance that something is out of position, bent, perhaps a bolt is missing, not tight, etc.

    It seems unusual to ONLY install a Lucky 13 cone on an otherwise stock machine?

    Did this machine track straight before the Lucky 13 was installed?

    I seem to remember reading something about removing the syphon tube or it will cause the ski to pull. I hope I'm remembering correctly.

    The effect of the bilge siphon tube inside the jet pump nozzles should be minor.

    The OP apparently has a significant issue with pulling to one side, and needing to apply pressure to the handlebar to counter the hull bias. That suggests something is not right with the hull and/or attached parts
