    Reverse buket misbehaving!!

    For some reason my reverse bucket is poping down when I spin out the ski. After I spin it out and start accelerating it pops down. I'm lucky I havent blown it off the back of hte ski yet. I have the reverse bucket mod done but I dont think that it is causing the problem. Is there a way to tighten it up so it doesn't pop down so easy? It really scared the hell out of me the first time it happened I thought I broke something then realized it was just in reverse for no reson.

    Is there to much slack in the cable? Does the reverse handle feel sloppy? with the reverse bucket up and into forward position, grab the bucket and pull it down while watching the reverse handle, can you move it substantially before the handle lifts?
    and is your spring on?...PR...

    Spring is on, the handle moves with the bucket. The handel even feels tight when you throw iti in reversebut for some reason when the ass end of the ski is in the water on a launch sometimes it pops down. If I take off the linkage and crank it down a few then hook it back up you think that would help. Although thre really isn't much play in it. I dunno

    Nothing on this huh? Shibby had said that someone that did the reverse bucket mod had this problem but he coudn't remember what tehy had did to fix it. I'll have to take a closer look at it maybe I can come up with something.

    I wouldnt worry about it PR...I have heard of no one else having this problem...

    My only guess is the spring isnt tight...that would be the only cause of the thing snapping shut like that... Good Luck on your search!
