Why is the reverse on the right side??!!
I am interested in the 2008 Yami SHO's but my wife is wrestling with the idea of the reverse being on the right side.
Can somone tell me why would they place a reverse on the same side as the throttle? It doesn't make any sense. And for those of you who have gotten used to it, do you use your left hand to reach over and manuver or do you have certain way of using reverse and throttle with right hand?
Is this something that we can adjust to? Thanks

You cant "accidentally" engage reverse while cruising along .

I am not sure how the FX reverse compares to the XLT and SUV which are the same. I do know if you do not have it engaged all the way and hit the throttle it will bend the shaft on the reverse cable. I know from experience. I assume this is why it is on the same side. keeps people from pulling the throttle while engaging reverse.

I used to wonder why myself and kindof wished it was like the Seadoo's but after reading this thread, I'm now happy it is on the same side as my throttle. Ingenious decision on Yammi's part.

Just Yammis attempt to idiot proof their skis. They are the loan manufacturer still insisting on putting the lever on the wrong side. Even Kawi switched it to the left side on their new Ultra.
Is it easy to get used to using?? Probably not, especially for those who shift when the throttle is half open !!
