    2007 GTX excessive steering column end play...

    First time out on my new to me 2007 Wake 215. Ran awesome! One nitpicky thing drove me nuts. The steering column shaft has what I think is excessive end play. Feels like 2-3mm. Clunk clunk clunk as you ride and accel and decel. Compared it to my 2006 Wake GTX and the 2006 has no end play.

    Question. What is the process for getting in there and making an adjustment or shimming it? Anyone done this before?

    I believe all u can change is some O-rings in the column

    The whole column will have to come off and taken all the way apart, to see what is worn, damaged, or missing to find out tho....

    It looks like 4 bolts and a steering cable and it's in my lap. I'll keep you posted. There's too much play for me to not obsess over it when a thin washer or a doubling up on an oring might do the trick.

    Anyone here ever take the column down enough to be able to tell me if #39 in the fiche is a nut for adjusting column end play?

    Part #39 is used as an external cable housing adjustment to get your handle bars straight.... when your going straight. Has nothing to do with the steering column itself.

    Dang. Well, I may dig into this because it's just too much play for a mechanically sensitive guy like me to deal with. Clunk clunk clunk. It ain't right, and I'm all for justice. Maybe I'll actually contribute something to this site instead of pillaging all the time!
