    Need advice on GP1300R trim system

    Since I'm still very new at jetskis, I thought I should ask you guys about this.

    Can you give me some tips on using the trim system? Like when it should be set, in each particular setting? Can it be changed while underway?


    Right now, I can't tell a great deal different really. I usually run with 1 click down (bow up a little). And if I want to play around and get really wet, I'll do full up (bow down all the way).

    But I really don't know how to properly use each setting, and how I can take advantage of the system.

    Sounds like you got it down to me
    just play around with it alittle I like mine in neutral or bow low when cutting corners at higher speeds and when in a straight line bring the bow up for lift and high speed
    also bow down at take off then trim the bow up for a good hole shot.
    good luck have fun

    So then it is ok to make changes while moving?

    For some reason I was thinking you weren't supposed to do that, but as I read more about trims, it seemed to be useless without being able to, which is why I asked these questions.

    Bow up for wake jumping is cool too.
    I like to blip the throttle off the wake too for the added lift.
    Bow down would give you less lift.

    It is o.k. to use it while underway. Sometimes you may have to let off the throttle to adjust it at higher speeds because the force of the water makes it difficult to turn it up or down.
