    Sterring inspection cable recall ???

    I just went to the Kawa web site and it shows there is a recall inspection for the steering cable. Anybody seen this. Don't they send the recall by mail anymore?

    Notices are in the mail and just went out to all the dealers this week

    Jb you had the old steering cable it was upgraded in 2010. I believe yours is a 09? They changed it for that very reason. This is a different issue I believe. For the 300

    After reading the recall Tommy you are right . . . I don't think it applies to 2009. Funny thing was I was going to replace it soon anyway. But I will have to say it was hard enough trying to keep up with you and Mark when the Ski had steering. Without steering it became an enormous task! We will ride again soon my friend. JB

    I am having the Dealer replace it. On my 2007 250 I broke the same cable. I believe there is some type of connection or joint in the middle of the cable somewhere; and that is where it breaks. If MeanGreenMan chimes in I bet he may know more details about it. Oddly, the cable broke on the 260 and 250 at virtually the same time frame (100 hours).

    Yep same with mine. That's why they changed it in 2010. Make sure you get the updated one JB has different ends as well
