    Take Off UMI and go back to Stock?

    Guys has anyone just found that the UMi steering is just not for them and gone back to stock? I ask this because I like mine and all, but everytime I get on a stock set up it feels really nice and I actually can play with it a little more IMO. I have also noticed that I lose 1-2 MPH because of its agressive posture.
    Any thoughts? I am thinking of putting my stock back on with my Riva EXT kit.

    Austin, i cant tell in your pic but if you got the riser why not tilt the bars back towards your body for your liking to be more like stock.
    Also i noticed that one big difference is the width of the stock bars to the bars that come with umi. I shortend my umi bars and it is much better.
    Before i felt like i was driving the school bus.

    I know what you meen. I had the rxx and a rxdi,( same steering as the rxp) the rxx had umi and it definitely puts your weight farther toward the front. I really liked the umi for carving corners and riding aggresive but it was not as comfortable for cruising and makes it harder to get your weight over the rear and still be able to steer because the bars move more level frt to back and the stock move at an upward angle.

    I guess for speed runs we need some extentions to grab
    like they do when doing flips on bikes.

    I do have to agree the umi makes it alot harder to get weight back like you can with stock.
    But what i do like is that i feel like i have better chance of staying on ski in bad sitution with umi. It is hard to hold on to stock bars when there so low if you get your weight were it should not be.

    Now you guys got me wondering how much i am leaving on table with umi on top end.

    What would you do with the throttle? Really though a little taller bar and pulling them back some like you mentioned would help.

    Here is a pic of umi with riser for those that dont know what it looks like.

    With the riser you could tilt both the riser and the bars to likings. You could tilt it as far back as you want but will make it hard to access the glove box, but how cares when your looking for tenths.

    must be some old pics, still got the glove box sticker on . LOL

    sorry for hijacking Austin. If you find your short on parts for the stock unit let me know.

    If your tall enough to get your weight back probably none.

    I agree the rider position of the umi's feels alot more stable. I think because you can squeeze the ski more with your legs to keep planted on the ski.

    I definitely think the pros out way the cons and would love to have some umi's on my ski. correct handle bar setup is key.

    Yea, I have pulled my Rissers back a bit and they feel real good, but just not far enough and if I go to far the look like crap. Maye if I shorten the bars a bit as you said. I know for sure that a stock set up will give more speed with the right rider as it really allows for that 8 or so more inches back on the ski. We all know that allows for lift on the front of the ski and speed will come up.
