    Looking for UMI or Vilder Pro 785 steering parts

    I am looking for a upgrade steering system for my 785 Pro stock ski,
    Any suggestion of one over another?
    Does anyone still make any parts?
    Can the stock one be altered or upgraded?
    thanks,

    A guy on craigs list had a new Vilder for a 785 a month ago. Don't see it there now. He was in Minn. I think.

    thanks,
    Be prepared to do some cutting with the vilder system, you will have to cut your stock hood up pretty good to make it work. The first cut will be "U" shaped where the mfd operations decal is, and will go up to about 3/4" from the top of the hood. The second cut will be under the hood to allow the arm to swing up and down fully. Also if you are planing on using the factory polaris start/stop/trim and bilge swithces you will have to drill a hole in the handle bars to account for the peg that sticks out of the assembly or cut it off, which ever you preffer.

    with the umi i got from lugs.. all i had to do was sand the u shaped opening a little bit till it fully shut and cut the plastic out.. it would have gone easier if i started cutting the right spot first... lol
