    Fitting cover on 06 RXP with UMI steering

    It fits horribly. I know this is a known issue.

    How have other people got it to fit better? The main issue is that the bars are much longer than stock. I cut them down a bit but they are still too long and now im starting to get closer to the bend. Will an X cover be any better? LMK. Open to suggestions. It looks and fits awful as-is.

    I have the grey and black cover with ski outline on it and it does not fit good at all. You can get it to go over and be able to clip side clips but is very tight.
    Not sure if the one i have is the X cover or not????
    I dont use it so cant remember.

    I'm not sure that an X cover will work either if you have 32" bars

    I had to cut a little slit on both sides of the cover so it would fit with UMI steering and renthal bars.

    I dont remember what size the renthal bars were. I bought it as a complete setup from someone. Ive already cut an inch or more off of each side and it still doesnt fit. Im starting to get closer to the bends now. Maybe its time for a different set of bars. Ill go out and get an exact measurement of it once the 14" of snow all around it is gone

    Thats the same cover I have. I assume an X cover is different but I could be wrong. Ive never looked at them.

    Whats the width of X bars?

    James, When I installed the Riva handle bar extentions on mine and Missys skis i had to go with the 07+ cover..They fit perfect..NOW i dont knwo what the measurements for the UMI VS The Extentions are..BUt if they are the same then an 07 + cover will fit..
