    Dunno! its my first ski and the bloke who i bought it off said to keep the trim control to o and i wanted to check that by taking all the cabling off that it didnt set itelf different might seem a silly question to you but if you was to ask me a question about quantum physics that might seem silly to me

    Is this on a GPR? If you remove the trim cable, what's going to keep the nozzle properly located? Maybe I'm missing something...

    Im thinking you wouldnt really want to loose your trim control just for the look of some handlebars. Im not sure what the Rius trim set up is but im sure there using 7/8s bars like everyone else. Do you ride in chop at all? Leave your trim functioning! Its kinda like removing your seat so you can fit a bigger fire extinguisher in its place... or something

    Thanks for your replys guys but i think your missing the point, the ski has auto trim control, you dont need to touch the standard hand control trim at all, apparantly they come standard with limited edition Rius skis, it is a blue anodised trim plate with a spring ujamadangle thingy attached to it altering the steering nozzle when you come off the power and then again when you nail it sort of thing

    YEH thats the kiddie!!! it works really well, that was the reason for my first enquiry so with this auto trim i should be able to dismantle the trim control right through, ive been on to some tech guys here on this small island and they say no probs so ill give it a go now that i have got the new grips and umi finger throttle they will go well with the gold renthalls and polished steering assembly
