    How-To: Front Steering Adjustment

    for RXT... remove panel in front storage by removing black pins....

    for RXP.... remove front storage bin

    this gives you access to the steering adjsutment and stock air box assembly.

    follow the diagrams below... VERY SIMPLE. much safer than adjusting your steering from the rear of the ski near the pump.

    haha... not a stupid question at all!!

    when you add a pump wedge to a ski it knocks the alignment of the steering off by just a little... especially on the 3-seaters with the 2.5 wedge. You can adjsut the steering from the back of the ski, but it's much safer to do it at this location so that the steering rod is still held together with enough threads... Unless you add a pump wedge, it shouldn't be cause for concern.

    only need to perform this when you add something like a pump wedge to the ski... it knocks the alignment out a little bit... not to worry unless onedya your riding and you feel like the handlebars are straight but ur ski is turning...

    Don`t forget to use a straight edge against the steering nozzle and measure from straight edge to flat area of the right and left sides of upper pump mounting studs...when your distances are equal, you have centered steering...
    also pick a reference point from edge of handle bars down to footwell and measure that equally right and left to center handle bar...PR...

    a steering cable end/extention comes with a wedge kit to correct cable lenght/geometry...

    If you are out on the water, take the 10mm socket and loosen up the steering bolts. Then get it close by turning it clockwise or counterclockwise. Then leave the bolts loose and go water test it.

    While out on the water you can easily dial it in by lifting your hood up and grabbing the adjustment knob.

    Then go back to shore and tighten up the retainer bolts...........
