    too much bounce on my RXT

    I removed the OPAS and have a wedge installed. The Front of my ski is bouncing too much even at WOT and going across a little ripple. It seemed like it stayed down and hooked before my mods.
    Still waiting for my RE block offs.
    There was someone (sorry I forget your name, you had your son with you)at the shipbottom ride with an RXT. It seemed you didn't have as much bounce as my ski. Do you have a Wedge and is your OPAS removed?

    just a lil video from shipbottom

    What wedge are running 2 or 2.5 degree? My RXT with the 2 degree doesn't bounce until 69mph. My GTXSC had a 2.5 and it would bounce depending on fuel/storage load.

    I had the same problem on my RXP. The RE's will solve your problem.

    Same problem here. I took off the wedge as it was not really doing anything positive until I got the RE's. Wedge is back on with the RE's and no bounce...

    The bounce on my RXT when I installed the wedge but before the RE was bad, I smacked my forehead a few too many times on the steering pad. But the REs fixed the problem and could not be happier.

    if the hole in offset bushing in the steering nozzle is not toward the rear of the ski, turn it around.

    His name is Jeff, but he doesn't post here...just likes to ride fast.

    He has the Riva wedge and his OPAS is removed and replaced with the Riva block offs. Sponsons are Works.
