    What you are describing is most likely chine walking and it is a minor compliant about the SXR1500. One common thing to do is replace the sponsons. I suggest you ride it some more first to decide...

    I think coments like that come from people that think they will just climb off their SJ or SXR800 and be instant experts on the new machine. There is a small learning curve.
