2011 RXT260 Steering misaligned easy fix? or dealer time?
Steering misaligned handlebars are straight ski goes to the right, is this a easy fix or need to go to the dealer?
Thanks for any and all help

try to adjust it at the pump on the steering nozzle should be able to loosen the linkage to get it to go port

Seems just about EVERY RXT,RXPX & RXTX that was produced in the last couple years has had some sort of alignment steering issue IMHO. Most had luck by adjusting the nozzle. Some have to go under the column(myself included). A few have shaved their grates.

Tell me more about shaving the grate please...my alignment measures spot on but it still seems to pull right.

i found there is about 1/8" -3/16" of play right on the nozzle that can be taken up with a spacer washer right on the nozzle..
lift the IBR and wiggle the nozzle left to right you will see what im talking about..
when it moves you can see more space on the left side which slighly points the nozzle to the right..
probably just enough to cause the top end "drift"
i just havn't had the time to "shim" it..

@ Pony Racer
I was just looking into it - I do have the same "play". Looks like the shim/washer would need to go on the back side of the IBR bracket. I just need to figure exactly which side it is off center. I think at this point most has adjusted it soo far out to over compensate it can be misleading as to which side needs to be shimed. I'll try to get a center point where the pump is and then shim from there. I went to loosen the starboard side but off course my fixing plate bolt is stripped out... I have a back up plate thankfully!
