Still getting used to the new Trixx. I have had the same problem with the steering slide not staying locked. I will look at it closer to find the nut you said they tightened on yours. Definitely makes you nearly wipe out when it unexpectedly slides up or down. At a little over 6' tall, I really need the bars extended upward most of the time. But when I hop it, the handlebars slip and slam all the way down unexpectedly.
I have not found any other issues besides the handle bar slipping.
One feature I really enjoy is the quick-tap on the trim adjustment. Two quick taps on the VTS controller moves it back and forth from full up trim to neutral trim. It works great and allows you to quickly switch from doing tail stands to getting the heck out of Dodge. The brakes are also very cool. My past with Yamaha's, I'm not used to a brake like that yet, but I can see how that will enable better tricks as I get more used to it.
My family is having a ball with this ski. It has been pretty choppy so far this season, so we have also been running the bigger Yamaha skis a good bit, but the Spark by far is getting used the most.
I have been enjoying the gas mileage as well. So much better burn rate than a Yamaha FXHO.
Loving my new Trixx!
