Hello Everybody,
I am new to this forum. Great info here!

I just bought a 650SX stand up. I'm trying to figure out what safety feature keeps the ski from runnning away when I fall off.

There is not a lanyard. The steering is not spring loaded to turn the ski in circles... It seems that the ski will just continue to the other end of the lake if I fall off....

I know there is a a safety feature to protect from the "run away" ski, but i'm just not seeing it on this used ski I purchased.

Any input would be great. Please go easy on me, as I am new...

Thank you in advance!

I just rode a 650SX yesterday. The handlebars don't seem spring loaded but they will go around in circles if and when you fall off.

Mine goes in circles, but just incase the idle is turned low, it will usually die half way through the circle, at the farthest spot away.

sorry

I want to apologize for the previous post,I went to kitchen to get a beer & my daughter was at computer. She said hey dad this guy has a question regarding falling off & the lanyard switch! jokingly I told her send him a reply,tell him what he needs to know. When I came back in the room she said alright dad I took care of it! When asked she said I told him to just swim after it! After all thats what I do!!Humorous yes Good feedback no.
