    FX SHO Grip Vibration

    I have come across a few threads from folks contending there is some vibrations being transmitted to the FX SHO grips.

    For those that have ridden an SHO, could you please comment on this..

    Please use the information and chart below to help me use my own experiences to weigh in on your experiences

    I have ridden a SeaDoo 2000 GTX, SeaDoo 2001 GTX-DI, SeaDoo 2005 GTX 4-Tech, and Yammi VX110 Deluxe. The two strokes were more than acceptable even after all day riding and the 4 strokes where just plain smooth.

    On a scale of 1-10, here is how I would rate vibration of the above crafts

    (1- can't feel anything) (10 - buzzes and hand is numb after 5 minutes)


    2000 GTX - 4
    2001 GTX -DI 4
    2005 GTX - 4tech 3
    2007 VX110 Delu2xe 3
    Honda 1000 motorcycle 1
    My SHO expecations 3


    So, existing SHO riders, would you rate the SHO on this scale...

    Thank you!

    Not that I have ridden one. But a guy who did commented on the same thing after a ride on the Cruiser. Said his hands were numb. Was a guy on PWCToday.com.

    jtskier11...

    I posted the same thing at PWCToday as well. That is were I saw the thread...

    Hope I can get some data on this... if this were truly an issue, have to believe we've heard about it by now... ??

    In any case, thanks for the tip...

    There is a vibration, but I don't find it a problem.
    No way would your hands become numb or anywhere near it.
    I've been on a couple of long rides on mine and I never think about it.
    I do remember the talk about it some weeks back, but since then have not thought about it again----so it can't be too bad----can it?

    Fully agree re. GPR. I had my GPR from '01 and it was no better or worse than my SHO.

    I was out on my own in the ocean here a couple of weeks ago in choppy stuff and it seemed to go okay. Much better than GPR that would have been jumping all over the place---as they do. The swells were not 3ft though---maybe 2?

    The only race I've had was with about 3 hours up on it, an RXT that was a couple years old. It was very even. Steve's RXT has been GPSd at 66 on several occasions, so I guess SHO does about 66.

    Hope that helps.

    All stock grips suck. They are made to be durable...not protect your hands.

    Upgrade to ODI's for $20.
