    97 SPX UMI questions

    Hey guys, I just picked up a 1997 spx and It came with 2 UMI steering assemblies? I'm not familiar with UMI at all and all I found was a catalog from 20 years ago with their products.

    Basically it has an upgraded UMI steering assembly where the old steering assembly was BUTTT it has one on the BACK?? I'm so confused there's another exact same steering assembly mounted on the rear of the ski but with no handle bar.

    does anyone know anything about what this whole situation is ?

    check out my photos below.D8EF3E4A-FA26-4DAA-954A-32D3CFAB5B16_1_105_c.jpeg2755142F-B19E-4B99-B913-ECA1589D605E_1_105_c.jpeg26C33383-B903-4374-A021-2A8ACDC77D62_1_105_c.jpeg

    Man that is BIZARRIO !

    I’ve never seen anything like that before!

    Hopefully, someone can tell us about this set up.

    Can you post pictures from the engine bay? Is the steering end connected to something?

    Steering cable from the rear goes to the front assembly but remains disconnected there. Im guessing some sort of trick ski that someone would steer from the rear??

    Ok, THANK YOU, 1983 !

    That explains it! Makes complete sense that RAD Rick Roy brain stormed something like this! I remember when I was on the beach when the Pro Tour was in Ventura, CA. back in the late ‘90’s, and that’s the location that RAD Rick Roy was going through his freestyle routine with about 10 seconds left on the clock. When he suddenly took a long look out towards the waves and turned out towards the sea at full throttle. Then, it happened…he cleanly performed and executed the inverted back flip with perfect timing at the top of the wave form and nailed the landing!!! Man, the crowd, including myself, went BEZERK!!!! Epic maneuver and an epic day on the tour.
