    Lubricating the Speed Tie Assembly (GTX Limited)

    My recently purchased GTX Limited has them and they retract......well.......mehh. One has to be helped out.

    Is there a lube process to make the retracting assembly happy again?

    I have had people tell me they squirt Sea-Doo lube on the retracting mechanism but you have to take the cover off to access it.

    I actually have taken mine apart and twisted the retraction coil tighter by a few turns and it helps, The biggest problem is the cord has a knot at the end inside the unit, when it winds up if there is to much cord winding over the knot it just layers the cord in one spot were knot is and it get to big and rubs inside the housing, try to move cord back and forth when retracting it ( like a fishing reel)
