    Slop in tilt steering on '07 GTX Ltd

    Ever since new I've had issues with my adjustable steering in that when I'm in rough water and really pulling on the bars the tilt doesn't stay put, it works it's way back down all the way by itself. When I'm trying to stand up this makes life miserable. I'm 6'5" so I need the bars as high as I can get them.

    There is also a fair amount of side to side play on the bars now as well. Anyone else with this issue and did you find a way to rectify it? Nothing looks bent or wore so I thought I'd post on here for any suggestions before I start replacing anything. Thanks!

    I have an 07 GTX-Ltd and I've never had that problem. before you start tearing into it see if you can download the manual for the 07 and do some reading. It just might be something as simple as tightning a couple of parts here and there. Good luck.

    Thanks for the reply Blue. I have the factory manual but it doesn't say anything about this issue, at least I haven't found anything. I have had it apart twice now and can't figure out what my deal is. I cannot replicate the problem while it is apart, likely because I can't simulate the force I'm probably applying to the bars when I'm zipping through rough water. The big plastic screw has to be slipping through the block it threads into, the one with those allen bolts screwed into each side.

    Because I like the bars up all the time anyway, I may try to come up with a fix to keep them permanently in that position.

    Do you have the service manual or the owners manual.

    service manual....owner's manual is pretty much useless. They must do it that way so you have to take it back to the dealer for every issue that you ever run into.
