    07 FX HO bad riding attitude

    Used ski, previous owner did the Riva RPM kit..

    Ski likes to ride on one side or another till about 45 mph.. Is this due to the Riva ride plate?
    My other FX HO Cruiser seems to just be balanced and runs straight even at low speed..
    Thanks!

    I experienced this condition due to the Riva Sponsons, Julio...

    Did you go back to stock or try something else?

    julio is right on , lower them all the way down and see if it helps ,also try 08/09 sho ride plate , the ski will loose 1 or 2 miles but it will ride like a caddy.

    I couldn't get them to keep the ski going straight with three people on it so I just went back to OEM.

    Hope this helps, Julio...

    Thanks guys.. I'll get a pair of stock sponsons then..

    I do have the original ride plate. Guess I can try that first.

    Don't waste your time with the plate, Julio...
