    2000 GP1200R Trim

    Hoping someone could help me out. The trim on my jetski requires great force to turn it. I was wondering if anyone else has had these issues? I cant see the cable binding anywhere.

    Any help would be great. Thanks

    You can isolate which cable it is by removing the red trim cable from the pulley in the front storage area behind the bucket. If the trim is still difficult its one of the 2 upper cables, if not its the big red one.

    My trim will stiffen up when the ski has been sitting. I just spray wd-40 behind the purple piece on the trim and twist til it frees up. It seems so simple but the river i ride in is nasty.
    At same time i do the trim i'll squeeze the throttle lever and spray into the throttle as well

    sounds like the bearings in the trim handle are rusted. Lube up the handle and see if it helps. It happened to mine. Also check the trim cables. make sure they aren't frozen.

    I would think white lithium grease would work longer than wd-40
