    Tight steering slt780

    The steering on my 780 is very tight this spring. I just sprayed some lithium grease on the shaft that goes through the black housing under the hood. Is there something better I can do? If I take the 4 nuts off does that housing come apart to grease it properly

    Disconnect the cable from the steering nozzle. Try turning the nozzle by hand. If it turns freely, then I would look at the cable next. If its tigght, first look for any physical damage or kinks to the cable in the hull. If it looks ok then it probably needs to be lubed.

    i disconnected the cable and it is defiantly the shaft of the handlebarsthat is tight. i did try to pull the hood latch to see if i could spray something in that hole to lube the stearing shaft but that didnt go all the way through. so i tried to pull the shaft out but didnt get it out , didnt feel like messing with the cables that were getting tight as i was pulling the shaft out.
