Can anyone describe the procedure for adjusting the steering left to right on an '05 R-12X?

Thanks in advance.

in pump area on back of ski you will see a cable hooked up to your pump nozzel, you can adjust it their for left to right and to center the steering. Not sure how much adjustment you need.

Steering Adjustment

Thanks for that. I finally found a .pdf version of the service manual and figured it out. I measured left and right sides and it was off a bit so I'm hoping that it cures my right hand listing problem.

Hoping to sneak away from work this afternoon and go try it out.
Thanks
Randy

Thanks

Adjustment Tested

Took the ski to the lake and it fixed the problem. I guess that either the cable had been misadjusted for some time or someone messed with it. I bought the ski in magnificent condition (44 hours) and I don't think the guy ever messed with it at all.
So anyway, it was an easy fix.
The .pdf of the service manual is a pretty large file.
PM me with an e-mail address and I'll see if I can send it.

My 2005 seems to be doing the same type of leaning. Was it just a matter of centering the nozzle?

Leaning Right

It sure seemed to help. The weather here has been crap and I was out of town for a week and haven't had much time on the water with it. Hopefully going out later this week.
