Couldnt wait for UMI, RXP steering set up w/pics
So I get a little gung ho when it comes to my RXP. So one day last week I decided I didnt like the stock steering anymore, and wanted to go with a more sporty set-up. I knew I didnt want to go full umi, just throttle, bars and VTS housing.
I called UMI and they pretty much had nothing in stock. The VTS housing was 4-6 wait for production . By this time I already had everything ripped apart. Luckily Riva had the finger throttle in stock that I wanted, but unfortunetly no housing....
So after staring at pictures of the UMI housing set-up, I thought to myself, I can do that. Luckily at work we have bridgeport milling machines and a good stock of metal. So the next day I found some 60/61 6" aluminum round stock, cut two inches off the end then cut a cheese like wedge out of it. Chocked it up in the bridgeport, and after two days of on and off work and trial and error, I came up with this. I think it looks pretty good, and functions perfectly..
Please let me know what you think of my set up..
New alarm location, with a few new pieces and some polished stock pieces for the bars..
New bracket and location, looks pretty cool to and functions great.
The new look of my 07 ski
Now I just have to get it on the water and I cant wait for that...
Thanks to everyone on this board for their knowledge and help for everything, I appreciate it..

Thanks a lot guys..that means a lot, truly. I dont think I would want to sell them cause I make them at work hehe. Let me know what you are looking for though and maybe I can do something for yah.
All in all I think it was 62 bucks for the pro taper bars which are really nice, and 70 for the throttle, so It only cost me a fraction of the price of a whole UMI set-up and Iam completly happy with it.
Thanks again guys..really.
