    Safety Warning for RXP-X

    I was out working on the ski tonight and while I was checking the handle bars I noticed the entire base of the steering system was loose.

    36 hours on my ski and I never messed with those 4 bolts before....

    Just an FYI for the X owners......

    Do the X's have nylon lock nuts on the studs?

    Yep I check mine every couple hours, they like to wiggle loose.

    I knew some of you would check naturally... but I also know not everyone would ever think of it...

    When I "Nut and Bolted" my ski, I found these loose, too. I think its pretty clear that MOST dealers just pull the ski out of the crate and install the battery.
