I'm a newbie and just bought a 1992 Yamaha Waverunner. When I took it out for the 1st time it ran just fine. Problem was when I turn right, the jet ski turned just like should. When I turn left...at made MUCH wider turns. At 25mph a right turn took 12 ft or so, a left turn took over 50 feet.

When I got it out of the water I checked the steering to see if the jet at the back turned as you might expect. It turn freely in both directions (and at the same angles).

What should I check??

Thanks so much for your input.

Thanks DAN01. After checking I find that the nozzle simply does not turn as far when making a left turn, which explains why left turns are so wide. So now my question is:

How do I correct this? Is this a simple adjustment? Could there be some object inside the hull preventing the steering from fulling affecting the nozzle? Do I need to remove the bottom panel (ugh)?

Thanks so much for your input.
