ski pylon stuck

Recommended Posts

I have a 07 23lsv and the ski pylon is stuck down? When I got it recently it was up and I put it down and then tried to pull it up for some surfing on friday and I could not get it back up? am I not doing something right? It just lifts up right and turns a bit and slips into the slot? seems simple.

You have to twist it to get it to come back up...also I've seen alot of people try and twist the swivel head.

The obvious being said those things do tend to bind up, that plastic tends to creep when it goes through thermal cycles. But all that can be fixed with a grinder...

my 06 vlx did the same thing. the plastic swells with the seasons and I couldn't get it to come up. Try some plastic friendly lubricant spray once you get it up. You can get to it in the engine comparment if it's not coming up. Don't know if it's bad materials or bad design, but frustrating for sure. Yuk.gif
