    05 rxp steering conversion

    Hi all, would like to do a steering conversion on my 05 rxp and just wondering exactly what I will need. Looking to race and would really like to improve my skis handling as much as possible. Is there another thread on how to carry out the conversion?

    Thanks,


    Fraser

    X steering is best and OEM if you can find one used.. Just need to trim the hull a bit where the base goes in

    Here is what I recommend

    Renthal bars
    http://www.4-tecperformance.com/inde...roducts_id=772

    Riva adjustable finger throttle
    http://www.4-tecperformance.com/inde...roducts_id=329

    throttle cable adapter
    http://www.4-tecperformance.com/inde...roducts_id=330

    ODI Ruffian Grips
    http://www.4-tecperformance.com/inde...oducts_id=1088

    UMI trim/start housing
    http://www.4-tecperformance.com/inde...roducts_id=522

    All of the above will mount to the stock steering stem, but if you want to go all out then add the UMI steering system

    Awesome info guys! Thanks greenhulk for all the links! I was under the impression i would have to change the steering stem. How much of a difference does the umi system make to handling??

    The UMI steering is rock solid and has a much better look and feel over the stock steering. You can also adjust the ratio at which it turns the nozzle. I used to use this same setup on all my RXP's and loved it.

    Awesome what do people normally do about the mode button? Can only see a housing for trim and on and off

    Considering that switch isn't used often (for me anyway).... just relocate it somewhere that's still somewhat accessible.
