    04 Yamaha Cruiser FX HO Steering play

    Hi All,

    I was wondering how much forward/aft play in the steering is acceptable! I mean push/pull direction! I have about I'd say 1/4" movement, don't notice it when riding but not sure if this is something to worry about. Ski has less than 60 hours of use!

    Thanks very much,

    the fact that it is adjustable means you will always get some movement
    1/4" sounds ok to me, mine would have been that when new

    My 07 has the same amount of play. My 04 has less. If it becomes greater it might be of concern. The Svc manual I think says no play in the steering. I have a 200+ hours on the 07 and 130hrs on the 04. the 04 is a salt water boat the 07 a fresh water mostly jet. They seem to be ok.

    Thanks guy!
    I was reading the manual and it says there should not be any excessive play in that direction but it does not define what excessive is! Glad I checked with you guys! Thanks a million, Rez
