    sl750 doesnt turn right

    I have a 1995 polaris sl750 and it doesnt turn right. I know that the metal rod has to lock into place, but when i lock it into place it is still possible to pull it out with some force. anyone have any ideas on how to fix this?

    I have a 1996 SLT-780, and I had the exact same problem a few years back. What I had to do is replace the steering cable. The cable pushes out when turning right and pulls in when turning left. So what I found was at the back of the boat where the cable protrudes through the hull and connects to the jet-drive... the original cable actually exposed the cable itself when pushed out (ie. turning right)... mine had a "kink" in the cable itself and thus the force of the water on the jet-drive would not allow the cable to "push" with enough force to turn the jet-drive for the right turn. However, since the cable was not broken, when turning left it could easily "pull" the jet-drive, thus allowing left turns.

    Hopefully that makes sense, anyways, the cable replacement was not hard to do... it took a couple of hours. And with the new replacement cable, they made an improvement, where the core cable is no longer exposed, it is covered with a steel tube that slides in and out of the cable housing... much better design!
