    Think we found bowtieklr's problem

    Danny stopped by work today. And while he was waiting on me he looked at my ski and noticed something out of the ordinary. Now keep in mind that this is a brand new 05 with 3 hours on it. He noticed the other day that while ridding his trim as very easy to adjust, but he didnt think anything about it. Well today he went home and looked. Sure enough the cables that go to the cam in the front of the hull were not hooked up. They were just laying in the bottom of the hull. This was allowing the nozle to move freely.

    So to make a long story short. Fuck Yamaha. Oh ya, I love my gpr

    believe it or not, that is very common for dealers to do. You would think that dealers would go through it like they are supposed to. That trim problem was probably worth about .5+ mph net loss.

    My trim was also installed wrong, I tried to take it back to a dealer (not the one I bought it from ) and they said the dealer installs the trim when they uncrate it. So it may be the dealerships mess up not yamahas.

    My 01 GPR had this same thing overlooked from the dealer/factory. Rode it for about 1.5 hours before I figured out what the heck was goin' on.

    Yep sure enough both cables were still in the shrink wrap with the wires for shipping. I had thought something was wrong with the trim but hadnt had time to track it down. Well I found it and it is fixed now. I think that is the reason it violently pitched me 2 weeks ago. But while I was fixing that I borrowed Ryans ( myth) intake grate and his jims ride plate. I also stepped the sponsons and that is all I have done. I will test it tomorrow and see how it does. Hopefully it will be more fun... Just cant believe they missed that. I even looked at the invoice and it had " PDI performed" hand written on it.

    Oh well its time to play now. I have a lil grudge match set up for tomorrow already.

    well went out and tested it. the ski didnt try to kill me this time... YAAAHHHHH It took a lil while to get the trim degreed in. I used Myths ski as a refernece and went from there. has anyone tried changing the trim to get a lil more speed? Mine seems to feel like if it woulkd come up a few more degrees it would get a lil faster.

    I also loved the hook up of the 1200 intake grate and jims plate that I borrowed untill mine come in. I was in a nice chop and felt like I was glued to the water. I forgot my GPS but I walked off from a few boys on a boat like they were sittin still and they were doin 55-58 gps.

    I cat wait till my stuff comes in. then its time for round 2 of mods

    ohh and it wasnt a loose trim cable. It was never hooked up, either leg of the cable. I could tell a definite difference. Much better now.

    I think we should make a check list for everyone who buys a new ski to check themselves to make sure all was done on the PDI.
