    Can't answer the best position for your conditions but I read in the owners manual just last night that you can set 2 positions. Sounds easy to do. You can go to the Seadoo website and download it if you do not have the manual.

    Hey Buddy, did you get your ski fixed.

    If so how does that arm pull feel now.??

    Clueless, i will give you my best opinion.
    We have to suppose that our trim nozzle is setup up similar.
    With your setup ( riva grate) your best speed will be at half to slight above half. You can trim up all the way but will loose top end. I found the Riva grate to get quite squirly in the wind or some chop trimed up all the way. Very loose in the back end but not good loose.
    So there really is no need to ride trim all the way up as i can assure you in flat water it is slower.

    In the chop your grate will tend to want to come unhooked or the pump being un loaded with water so to compensate will be to trim down below half +-.

    On holeshot (from idle to Wot) you can put the trim all the way down and nail it and stay hooked up. IF your ski is set up good i find you can trim right below half and nail it and if you lean hard enough can stay hooked with quicker holeshot.
    Whats a nice holeshot is all the way down. Nail it and before you can blink go to preset around half. SEEYA

    The way i set my presets is at right below half or half on down down postion and right above half on the up up on VTS.
    Those are my most common settings for WOT, so i chose those.
    YOu want your settings at ones that you need when you cant see the gauges in my opinon.

    Hope that helped and did not confuse you to much.

    Setting presets

    HOld both up and down on VTS till preset 1 shows in gauge cluster.
    Move the Trim postion in gauge to where you want it per preset 1
    press both up and down at same time (without holding down constantly)
    now preset 2 will show up.
    Move the Trim position in gauge to where you want it per preset 2
    press both up and down at same time (without holding down constantly)

    and your done.

    Now if you press VTS buttons Down Down = preset 1
    If you press VTS button up up = preset 2

    Makes since or no.

    Thanks buddy. I haven't got my ski back from Bruce yet. He had a pretty good show in New Orleans last week and hes short handed. I'll probably get it Monday or Wednsday of next week. Either way, its still a %100 better turn around than my old mechanic. So....for right now, I'm still just dreaming of the arm pull.

    I've found for me that the fastest setting is usually (depending on fuel load) the first click above center. For launches I like it all the way down and after 1 boat length or 3 milliseconds I give the up trim a double tap and hang on for dear life. In the chop I usually run neutral trim and adjust speed to suit unless I'm racing. Then it's a matter of trying to keep the nose down, the pump in the water and the pilot on top.
