    Manual trim...?

    I've looked through the countless threads and old pix, but haven't found a true manual trim for an x2. I've based what I came up with off of a few designs from this site, but feel that the nozzle is forced upward by the pump pressure. I put a couple springs on the bottom of the nozzle, but now I need two hands to squeeze it.

    Is is there a production version made by anyone?

    I'll post pix of my set up...

    Re: Manual trim...?

    I have to manually trim, too. I did find a massage parlor that would do it for me, but they had cold hands, and they charged WAY too much.

    I did learn what a happy ending is, though.

    Re: Manual trim...?

    I don't think anyone is currently making a production trim setup. I mad a few, but no longer have those skis. X2guy (I think) made some, but no longer. The hardest part is getting a cable and lever (at least for me). the rest was fairly easy, but I have some cool tools to facilitate the job.

    Are you seeking a drop nozzle for racing? Mine were designed for more freestyle/playful riding for up trim.

    Really? For a drop, or an up/freestyle type?

    Pics or it never happened.

    I just want to see it. A twist grip could get a wee bit itchy at times...

    somebody did one utilizing a bicycle cable and lever , some stainless springs from the hardware and a few other miscellaneous odds and ends !, i believe it worked well since in the natural realm of physics the nozzle reverts to a strait position when the OEM cable breaks ""i know these things !""

    I had a drop nozzle setup, it was very straightforward... UMI lever, a custom length cable and a Skat Track drop nozzle. The entire setup is in my '93X2 build thread.

    Re: Manual trim...?

    Jon, I have a feeling he's looking for a freestyle setup. The cable setup is a little weird for that, hence why no one produces one. The x2guy (maybe?) one had a pivot point mounted to the original trim mount on the hull, and it was sort of just out there, although having never seen one in person, I do not know. I have heard that his setup was good!

    Re: Manual trim...?

    Yes, looking for a freestyle setup I suppose.
    Didn't like the stock version, so I tried following a few leads from members here.
    I inverted the stock handle mechanism under the top deck, flipped the trim nozzle, ran a 48" Silver Jacket cable thru the stock exhaust water exit tube and connected it to a lever on the trim mechanism. Then ran a short cable up through the top deck and around to a Blowsion trim lever. Put a couple springs on the bottom side of the nozzle to keep it down. The pull on the lever was tight, but usable. But when it was under load in the water (in motion) I don't think the springs were taut enough to keep the nozzle down, cuz when I pulled the trim lever, I didn't see a change in the pumps direction...and it already appeared to be pointing more up than down...
    Just trying to find a simple setup to use the trim.
