    UMI Steering install problems... any how to thread links?

    I am having a few problems installing a UMI system in my 2006 GPR. The plate has 4 holes that are arranged in a square pattern. The hull has six holes four of which are close, the lower two look to line up and the upper two are too wide... do you have to drill the hull? Any pictures of installed UMI systems?

    Thank you.


    Anyone know if you can use the UMI and off throttle steering?

    You will have to drill 2 new holes through the top deck and through the backing plate. FYI the backing plate is SS so it is really hard to drill, I had the machinist at work do it.

    As far as the off throttle stuff, I relocated it on the inside of the ski out of the way.

    It can be done and you will be glad you did when you are finished.

    That looks really really good... is that a stock backing plate?

    Another stupid question... does your off throttle steering still work? Or is it just there so that you don't throw an error code?
