    Have you adjust the steering cable properly and also put the wedge right way in with the thick end down?

    I have the R&D 1* too, no steering issues ..

    Is it that you can't turn left at all or your just hitting the reverse bucket so you can't turn completely?

    Like just mentioned check your steering as you have to make adjustments with a wedge and the proper wedge installation ....

    You need to dremel the bucket. Get down on your knees and look where it catches

    Maybe if you have oem plate... Not with R&D or Riva plate.

    you are so wrong, work the nozzle fully up and fully down i can assure you it catches and doesnt lock into place.

    My bucket hit w r&d plate. Had to dremel. Have the wedge on now too and reverse works fine. Adjust steering and check bucket clearance

    Sorry, but on my ski I have no problem it's about 10mm clearance to the rev bucket minimum over all modes of turning up/down-left/right. with 1 degree wedge installed...

    When you look from back of ski, the logo should be down left and pointing forward.
