    2011 Kawasaki Ultra 300X-Left Turns = Feels like sinking

    Anyone else feel like when you make a turn slowly (left turn) the back left side seems to be going under and the ski will sink? I'm pretty sure when i first got mine in the water and made a left turn i felt like the thing was going to sink. Had another guy ride mine and he also has the same year and model as me, says he thinks he notices it on his too. Anyone else have this issue or felt this? Also i turn it to the right and it feels fine, it's weird it feels heavy on the left side. Could this be because the supercharger is on the left side? (if your sitting on the ski and facing forward, thats my left side)

    very very very very common and well known issue on all of 300's.... know its going to lean that way and give it a touch of throttle, you'll be fine!

    Thanks guys, anyone know what causes it though? Any way to correct it? I figured out quickly that i just needed to give it some gas to fix it but it still sucks.

    One part of the problem is the single waterbox

    Pull the trigger
    Just live with it, no easy way to correct the issue. Becuse you have to compensate the wight on the right side but the watermass is pending in the waterbox so its not easy do. On the 250x -07 and 310 there is 2 waterboxes and the problem is solved.
    I notice the issue first time on my 250x 2007 when I took the second waterbox out.

    The issue wasn't completely resolved with the 310 but it's only a slight tipping feeling while idling and turning to the right. I just give it a touch of throttle and away you go instead of falling off.

    Many Many discussions on the subject as the Kawa haters luv to bring this up..

    But it is a bad design with the SC,Waterbox and ex manifold all on one side.. Just be aware of it Epecially if your carrying a passenger but a little throttle that puts you on plane will ease you worries..
