    150 speedster compartment lid

    Does anyone else have a problem with their 150 speedster compartment lid infront of steering wheel staying up. Does anyone know where I can get a stronger piston or fix it so it will stay up

    I have the same problem on my Sportster... but it's a completely different design, so I can't help you much. I don't even have a piston at all, just the tension of the hinge mechanism. I recommend a stick.

    John, I have the same problem. My boat is in new shape and I think the piston isnt stiff enough. Make sure you dont slam anything in there...Its comes down with some force...

    I've got this problem too, I would love to find out who manufactured this strut (and the ones for the rear compartment) and order the next size up in strength.

    I had the same problem, If you slide the boot back and i think turn it clockwise it should stiffin the shock up. i did it to mine its not much better but it doesnt fall on my hand anymore

    This is dangerous.. I think this should be a safety recall for every speedster boat. They need to find a new piston. Is anybody know how safety recall works ?
