MSX Top Speed Thought
So my buddy came up with an idea I liked and I wanted to pass it by you guys.
Why not install the trim system from a Yami into the MSX hull?
More top speed in the up position
Better acceleartion in the down position
Better control in the ugly water.
It seems you change the left grip with the trim assembly.
Plenty of room for the control mechanism to mount.
The cabling is all long enough.
Trim bucket and reverse should be too tough as it's been done on the SL hull.
Maybe even disable the reverse and run the cabling through the factory hole and sinply add a trim bucket.
I'm thinking I'd like the reverse.........just because I want to see if it's doable.

That sounds like a pretty smart buddy of yours.

I don't know what the trim system on a yami looks like but I would be skeptic that it will help improve the ride...I mean Polaris tried a trim system on Womacks SLTX and he told them to junk it after his first few rides with it...not to mention the Genisis has never had one. I know the MSX hull is different but I was lead to believe from my discussion on the issue that the trim system just doesn't work well on a hull bigger than the SL models. But as with anything, it's worth a shot to see what it does...would be interesting!
Oh yeah...I thought someone on this forum before mentioned that reverse is for women

I thought about this same thing on my STXR and I've heard the same arguments about it not working BUT doesn't the Yamaha XLT have trim? if it does how well does it work. Why would it work for them but not anyone else?

Not only does the Yami have it BUT the same company (Robrady design) designed the hulls.
With that in mind and the pictures I have, there's plenty of room for that hull to come out of the water.
This photo is at roughly 70 and look at how much hull is in the water. Yes, great for everyday riding and certain conditions BUT get the nose up in the glass and I'll bet there's at LEAST 1 MPH.

Just for $hits & giggles, you should take one of your Matrix's for a ride with NO sponsons and your apple-bag glued to the grab handle, just to see if the sponsons have any type of noseover effect. Probably not, but it's a free test???? You the man Al, you the man!!!

I vote to give it a try.
If it were me I would remove the reverse and use the reverse cable hole. If the trim worked out, then I would drill a hole for the trim cable and reinstall the reverse bucket.
If it didn't work, you could remove the trim and reinstall the reverse with no extra holes in your hull.

Excellent thought, that's what Kevin and I were thinking when we were looking at the boat. It's funny, the room they left at the pump area was like they had another cable in mind.
