    No. I haven't thought about that. I need to get the ski back on the trailer and clean up the very aft, bottom of the ski. It's currently sitting on a smaller, floating jetski dock/lift. This...

    It's been almost 1 1/2 months since I made my last post to this thread. I took the ski out today (4/26/2020) and the conditions were horrendous. Probably more boats and jet skis than on any summer...

    Many years ago, I had to do some work to my '94 Raider. I had to remove the ride plate to work back there. I made the bad decision to not tighten up the ride plate bolts when I finished. Needless...

    I just went back and looked in my photos/videos and found a video from Sept 2018. In it, I'm prying on the pump shoe and I could only get a very small bit of movement. In the video, I didn't focus...

    Adam, thank you for your reply!

    I'm pretty sure that I've done what you suggested. Obviously nothing jumped out at me. There is a problem but I just haven't been able to find it. I need to do...

    Other people have ridden this ski over the summer but today was the first time I've ridden it in a while. The water was very smooth and the wind was calm so there wasn't anything to affect the ride...

    I've had this ski out on the water several times this year but today was the first day without a lot of wind driven chop.

    The problem is still there, not that I thought that it was going to "heal"...

    So yesterday afternoon I got back under the ski and stared at the bottom for 45 mins. I checked everything from the front of the pump shoe all the way back to the steering nozzle and everything in...

    I'll get back under the ski this evening and have another look. I might even try to take a video of the movement and post it.

    Adam, I've got the OEM, stock sponsons.

    Back at the end of July of this year, I removed the sponsons. You can see some pictures of the hull without sponsons in post #20. I ran the ski without...

    Okay, I finally got this ski back out on the water this afternoon. The problem is still there.

    I accelerated slowly and paid close attention to how the ski was handling. All was going well with...

    I finally got the sponsons back on yesterday afternoon. Maybe (and that's a big maybe!) I'll get a chance to get the ski back in the water today or tomorrow. Probably not but maybe.

    I do have...

    Thanks for your response, Adam.

    Right in the middle of my first post in this thread I wrote this:



    I'd love to get my hands on a '98-'99 nozzle. Anyone got one for sale??

    UPDATE: CORRECTION!!!!!

    In post #24 on 8/13/18, I wrote that I had replaced the steering cable before I had the weird handling problems. I said that I replaced the original steering cable at the...

    The fuel filter is brand new. The petcock is original OEM. It may or may not be partially clogged, I don't know. However, I have tried it in both the "on" and "reserve" positions and the engine...

    Well, I figured out that brass colored, steering cable bracket in the pictures above. It actually goes over a silver colored metal bracket that bolts into the upper hull. I don't understand what...

    Bought some replacement, metric bolts for the intake grate. I got those installed yesterday.

    Since the sponsons are still on my work bench, I decided to find out why one of them won't adjust. ...
  18. I finally got under the ski this evening and...

    I finally got under the ski this evening and removed the intake grate to look at the tunnel. I didn't see any cracks and nothing looked out of the ordinary.

    The only thing that might be slightly...
  19. Other than the stator, the replacement steering...

    Other than the stator, the replacement steering cable is the only thing that changed. Before the stator and the steering cable, the ski wasn't behaving "funny." Now, I do have to admit that I...

    The bracket looks simple but I just couldn't get the cable inside of the "tunnel" and stick it upwards over the two studs hanging down from the handle bar area. It just didn't seem to fit right

    No. No binding at all. The used, replacement cable is nice and smooth.

    The only problem that I had with the installation had to do with a metal bracket piece under that handle bar area where the...

    Thank you for this bit of information! I'm going to try to find some time tomorrow and remove the intake grate.

    I told my wife that the only parts left on the bottom that could be causing this...
  23. I got the ski on the water today and the sponsons...

    I got the ski on the water today and the sponsons are not the problem. Without the sponsons on, the ski listed to the right quite a bit. Nothing like years ago when one of the OEM, plastic trim...
  24. BTW, I forgot to mention that I saw nothing wrong...

    BTW, I forgot to mention that I saw nothing wrong with either sponson that would make me say I found the "smoking gun." Still, I'm going to get this ski in the water and see how it does in a...
