    4th of july breakage! VTS arm help.

    I guess rough waters got the best of my XP.

    I'm looking for somewhere to get the arm that controls the trim, Goes from the hull to the nozzle.

    fwiw, it's a 1998 XPL

    Just cut part of the hard plastic off and drill a hole through it and the metal rod too. You'll see a hole on the rod once you break the rest of the plastic off that can be drill out alittle bigger so you can use a bolt and locknut. Then you just adjust the rod out a few turns more and it's like new again.

    Seadoo came out with a new an improve one cause the old ones like to break at the plastic end. The old was like 9 bucks and the new one is like 30+ bucks.

    Something to try if you can't wait for mail order....... Try Ronnies

    The part that broke is the L shaped part that bolt to the nozzle its self, If I take the rest of that plastic off theres a hole in the rod?

    Yeap there's a small flat piece of metal and a small hole in there once you bust it apart. You can always add some small washers if you can't use what's left as a spacer.
