    Anyone Need UMI Steering for Seadoo HX?? (this is not a classified add)

    Hey all. Im toying around with the idea of reproducing the UMI steering set up for the Seadoo HX. Since Umi doesnt make them anymore i see they are hard to come by. I am a Design Engineer and CNC Programmer and have access to 5 axis CNC machines. I have a UMI set up on my GSX, This set up doesnt seem difficult to reproduce. Thing is I dont have a UMI for an HX to reproduce. Does anyone have or have seen any sort of drawings for the HX UMI steering? I assume I can buy the rebuild kit and reverse engineer the rest if I had some starting points. If this turns out to be a fairly easy project im thinking the cost wouldnt be nearly as much as the ones ive seen recently on e bay. Id be happy to pass the savings on to anyone else interested. Thoughts?? Intersts? Thanks

    I'm sure there would be interest, how many really step up is always the kicker. I can donate one for measurements (have three), but there are a couple welds to be made, and once you have one the only wear item is the bearings, which are a pita to press in/out but still do-able. you will need to provide the correct cable end too. Regarding the drawings, they are property of UMI and im sure you will not find them. My .02.

    Good info. Do you know if the bearings are generic or do they need to be purchased through UMI? I appriciate the offer to Donate for Measurments! What do you have in mind there? Sell cheap? Loan? Full Donate? Do you also have the cable end? Let me know what your thinking. I thought about calling UMI since they dont make them anymore maybe they will send some info. The welding isnt an issue either. I have access to a few very talented welders.

    Generic bearings, I have the number written down at home. I can pm you later. Regarding my stem, loaner only man they are too rare to give or sell! I'll be expecting one of the first prototypes at cost. Lol. I do have the correct end. You may want to touch base with them, it's my understanding they are not out of business they just stopped making pwc stuff. You need to change the design enough to avoid trouble, don't think reverse engineering is the answer. Send the drawings off to china if that's what your plan is.

    Ok thats what i figured but just wanted to be sure. Id say the loaner will get you one at cost no problem. Im not really looking to mass produce anything. My thoughts are see if there is a demand, if so how many and maybe make a handfull or somthing. Im not looking to be official or make a huge profit here. Ill keep you posted. Thanks for the bearing info.
