    Steering getting harder, help.

    I have had to skis now that after a couple of months the steering becomes harder. I wash my skis right after using them and keep them very clean, but donīt know what I am doing wrong. Have the 2014 FZS now, how do you lubricate the steering colum or what do you guys do to keep it soft or easy??

    Have many hours do you have on it. Have you done any preventive maintenance on it? There are places like on the rear nozzle where you should be greasing it.

    22 hours. After every wash and let it sit for a day and then lubricate everything. But have no idea how to lubricate the steering.

    Should have been lubed at the 10hr mark but after that should be fine till I think 100hrs or 12months.
    This is the 09 FZR manual (Just happened to have the link handy) but same as the others as far as servicing points. Look up the lube points in it and it will show you the places to grease.

    Yep......remove the panel in the front storage compartment to gain access (I presume the FZ has one similar to the FX)
    Here's a pic of my old FXHO......should be similar set up on the FZ....
