    Mines and few others on Greenhulk did the samething.. eventually it stopped for me but a fren of mine apparently just adjusted the steering nozzle?.?

    It seems to be with all 15F's. It doesnt cause that much of a problem.. but i have aftertmarket sponsons and rideplate..

    Probably the best thing to do if you have never adjusted one is take it in and have the shop adjust it ... there are 2 adjustment points on the cable and you need to know which one to adjust... thats the tricky party

    OK I was having the same exact problem on my 08 15F. It always seemed to pull to the right yet according to the instructions, everything was lined up correctly. So I thought it was me....perhaps I was always leaning on one side or whatever. At anyrate, yesterday I'm taking my evening cruise along the Hudson River when suddently I lose steering. When I got the ski back on the trailer, I discovered that the cable had snapped about a 1/4 inch above the nut that attaches to the nozzle. I suspect that what was happening is that the steel rod on that end was cracked and when pressure was applied, the crack expanded on a regular basis until it finally snapped.

    The only symptom that I can really point a finger at is that when the boat was on the trailer, and I wiggled the handlebars back and forth there was no play in the steering. However when on the water at speed, there was always some play.

    I am now trying to get Kawasaki to replace it under their "Good Times Protection Plan." They are saying that a steel rod bracking is "normal wear."
