Ski pylon stuck

Recommended Posts

On my 04 lsv the pylon will not go up or down. It has been stuck in the up position since I bought it. I had it down once but it was hard as heck to get back up so i just left it up. It not all that bad to leave up but sometimes would like it down for booze crusing at night.

Pretty common problem, I think people we're filing or sanding them down.

Just clean and sand downn ,if necessary, the plastic insert that the pole slides thru. Don't sand down the pole just clean it. Open up the engine cover and you should see the pole assembly and how to unbolt unit or how to pry up the plastic insert.

Happened to mine a number of times. I had it in for warranty twice. The fix is as noted above.

Not had any problems after the second time sanding.

If you have a lathe nearby knocking down the bore .005" or so may be easier.
