    Thanks Vman. Dropped my ski off at the dealership to see what they know about the issue. If it comes back without a fix, I'm going to try this.

    Vman - a couple of questions - Can you indicate where and how you bent the rod? Also was the 95% reading at 3/4 full before or after the fix? Do you have the rollover valve still in place?

  8. RXPX 300 for the intermediate non-racing rider?

    Hi Everyone,

    For the past few years I've owned a STX 15F, before that a 2008 GTI. I would not consider myself an advanced rider who has hull to hull race experience, but I'm not a novice either....
