How to eliminate the hobby horse effect

Post  Aka Hooter on Wed Nov 12 2008, 09:10

Hi Jase welcome aboard I thought I may hit you with a question that's probably unique to fishing from a PWC. We are over here in Aussie and have large fish boxes on the back of Yamaha fxho 160,s when they are full of fish or being used for camping full of ice, beer and food the ski tends to hobby horse because of all the weight at the stern. The trim tab setting for the bow does not really help eliminate the problem encountered at cruising speeds of around 20 knots which is quite often the most comfortable speed for the sea conditions. We have come up with a crude fix that entails the mounting of an outboard motor dolphin fin under the rear Jet plate ( see photos below ) is there a better fix ? Cheers Hoot

Hi aka hooter
that is quite a clever idea,in the racing scene we normally extend the ride plate to stop the bouncing
more and more guys are starting to play with small trim tabs now on jetskis with success as skis are getting bigger and bigger.

Well Hooter... I'm really impressed! What an awesome addition to the ski... Does it run well with no weight on the back? Certainly got me thinking about my future additions to mine.

Hi Ducky it makes absolutely no difference to performance with no weight aft and the throttle trim works perfect it just comes into play when you load up the fish box when the factory trim becomes next to useless.

towing

Post  softbaiter on Thu Nov 27 2008, 19:04

Hi Jase

I just got a fx140, if i wanted to tow it behind a boat do i have to block the water intake? I was thinking of a ballcock or similar

Also Can I spray inox freely around seals etc ?

hey congrats on the new ski
jetskis need to have a tap put on the water intake if they are going to be towed at any speed,other wise major issues will arise
as for the inox i spray the engine bays and all the engine as well as electrics when i do services to protect everything as it doesnt swell the rubber hoses as quick as wd40 or crc

Excellent Cheers for that Jase. I use Inox on the old mans outboard and assumed it was safe, but one never can be too sure.

Now to read the manual and find the water intake line!
