    GP1800 - pulling to the right

    Do I simply adjust nozzle position or is there something else to it?

    A slight adjustment to the steering nozzle should fix it. Both my son's and my GPs did the same. Lengthening the turn adjustment 2 turns on my son's took it almost all the way out. I haven't done my ski yet, but will probably start with 2 turns.

    Mine does the same and its super annoying. I have already adjusted the nozzle to perfectly straight and it still does it. Im thinking the ride plate is crooked. Ill check it when i do the intake grate reinforcement this winter.

    My EX also does it, i straightened it, but i dont ride it, so i dont know if its fixed or not..
    Its a pain in the ass to adjust. was easier for me to pull the nozzle and spin it instead of unscrewing the linkage all the way.

    Steering nozzle adjustment fixed it. It a lot more than 2 turn. I used visual lines on top of the the nozzle and steering handle position to align. Took about 8 turns. Locked threads with blue Locktite.
    Tested on the water, no more pulling.

    Was the needed adjustment extending the steering rod end or shortening it?

    If extending the length, did you check how many threads of engagement at the rod end were still inside the end fitting?

    You don't want it hanging on by only a few turns.

    I think there is a corresponding threaded adjustment at the handlebar end of the cable. So some of the needed adjustment could be done there, if needed.

    Extending. I think there were about 5-7 threads left at the end.

    That is sufficient.
