    250x Trim Control

    Hi guys just had the 08 model 250x for a few weeks now. Its run in and I've already hit 70 mph (no mods).
    A question - does the 250x have a trim control or is it automatic ? Or doesn't it need one.

    Thanks,
    Joe - from down under.

    Thats it, I'm moving to Australia. Absolutely everything runs faster down there.

    Totally amazing unless your reading the Stock Speedo and if so then your still doing good but not what you think its going. For the sake of keeping the chatter to a minimum we'll go with the speedo on the dash.



    Welcome to the forum.

    To answer your question then yes a trim plate is out now and a lever to operate the trim is comming shortly. Its the TBM plate. Gives you the speed gain of a Riva but with the ability to trim it down.

    Skip,
    Can you explain more about the comment you made regarding reading the stock speedo on the ski ? Aren't they that accurate ? At the moment that is the only speed device that I have available to me so I get my readings from that. The reading in Kph is 112 @ 8570 rpm. The 112 kph is converted to 70 mph. Thanks.

    The Speedo (A.K.A Dreemometer) is notorious for giving inaccurate readings. Typically they run a few MPH faster. Hence the comment from Skip! Most of the folks here post GPS #'s, which are supposed to be accurate. No biggie, you have stock ski, should do 65-68 MPH.

    Thanks. Appreciate the info.
    65-68 mph down under still fast on the water !

    + dreamometer only reads to 70mph 112kms so even if you do manage to get more speed out of it it will still only read as above.
