    Question GPR Steering return

    quesiton guys, I went to the dealership the other day and was looking over a 2007 GPR while they looked up a part, well, while playing with a 07 on the showroom floor [mouth watering]......I noticed that the steering had a bit of "spring action" back to one side, I forget left or right.I think right...

    Now, I went home and noticed that my 2000 does not. Do they all have this return action ? did they incorporate this after a certain year ?

    I remember a Larsen boat I had had this feature. Just wondering if my 2K GPR should have it.

    Maybe the intercooler is hitting the steering cable?

    Ditto.
    My 2000 does it but the 01 and 03 do not. My 2000 did not do it until I put bars on it.
