    My RXP has alot of up and down movement in the handlebars, how do I get rid of this? Did a search but nothing came up.

    Mine goes up and down also!!, thinking bearings in shaft aren't tight, with the way we right there is a lot of stress on those bearings holding a 150lb plus dude at 70mph plus!! i'm not worrying about it till its really bad...

    Dealership told me that this is normal movement on all RXPs. Did not believe them till I went back to the dealership and sat on a couple RXPs on the show room floor. They all had the same up/down movement in the steering.

    UMI rules!! Yeah I had this problem on Kawa years ago and bought a UMI steering box -- WOW what a difference, I just don't think that with the price of these damn boats we should have to tolerate sloppy steering boxes. I mean please, this the only thing that keeps you on a boat that is literally flying up and down over waves and wakes at speeds that will get you a ticket on smooth asphalt. My RXT and X are tight now but I bet they get clunky bars after so much wear. Any way it fix this without spending the big bucks on UMI ?

    what it would cost to get new bearings and seals from UMI compared to what BRP sells i would do away with it from the get go plus last much longer i had problems within the first couple of months with stock steering

    Not sure if there is a good fix for the stock steering. Since it is just a metal shaft in a plastic housing, no bearings.
