    WTB: 97-99 GP Steering shaft bushing

    Need the bushings that keeps the steering shaft and bars stiff on a 99 GP 1200

    It is Item #27 here:
    http://partsfinder.onlinemicrofiche....e=13&A=70&B=26

    I really need four of them, two each for two different skis. But will settle for just a pair if someone has them. If it is worn out I don't want it as that is the reason i need them.

    Dont really want to pay full price for them, just checking the community to see if maybe someone has them used but still in good condition.

    They are sloppy new, so don't expect a dramatic improvement changing these out.

    Well my 97 is stiff as a board. Both of my brothers 99s (with less hours than my 97) have alot of play. The one i am working on for him now had so much slop the top bushing came loose and the entire engine hatch cover was loose on the right side bolts. It probably has 1/4" of play back and forth as well as some left and right.
    I think it needs the top bushing as well which i have already found a good price.

    Is it normal for it to be loose?
