    Make JetSki More Stable?

    I have a Kawasaki 750 ss and I was wondering if there is anything I could do to make the ski more stable when riding with someone else? Or am I kidding myself even thinking that?

    I realize it's best to just ride by myself on it but my girlfriend wants to ride with me so I have to figure out some way..

    Just FYI, I'm not going to buy a boat just to take one person with me, so don't suggest that lol.

    On mine I just put a longer ride plate on and make sure you keep all of your weight forward with the other person and it will work out fine. They aren't the most stable skis, but that's what makes them fun. Oh and ditch the fatties

    Re: Make JetSki More Stable?

    Well, I had the same problem. But my wife is quite thin and not overweight, but the 1100zxi was still tippy side to side to her. So, I bought a 1997 1100stx and it is MUCH more stable than the zxi. Has a weight limit of 496lbs compared to a zxi of 330lbs. Hull is 4 inches wider and about 12 inches longer. But it rides really well.

    But, the point is I kept my 750zxi for me to ride by myself. Has a shredmaster rideplate and I love it.

    When I was looking for a more stable ski, most guys on the forum told me the stx was the most stable.

    So, I am suggesting you have two skis. An stx and a zxi.

EG.. porpising .... bad steering responce .. instabillity at speed..among other things.. its just somthing you have to live with
    kawasaki ultra 150 ....

    2 x X2 blue 86 plenty of mods , red 89 some mods ...

    89 SX freestyle, wave jumper ......

    93 650 sx ..

    stock ZXI 900 ...

    Exactly, but the stx did solve that for me. And I now can ride my zxi by myself.

    Lol no thank you, she is tiny.

    Thanks for the help guys, guess I'll just have to learn how to handle it.

    Maybe I'll look into getting the stx or similar for riding with someone else..

    How tiny?

    It takes a big man to admit when he's wrong. I am not a big man.
