R&D Pump Wedge on RXT - Steering Fixing
At the weekend I fitted an R&D 2.5degree Pump Wedge and new Intake Grate.
All seemed to go reasonably well (but don't ask about the white sealant!), except for I'm not convinced about the way that the steering rod reconnects.
The R&D kit instructions only seem to mention the RXP and not the RXT, which confused me slightly.
The steering rod originally had a little sort of swivel part on, which seemed to make sense, since the assembly needs to move from left-right. The R&D kit only seemed to have a longer rod which didn't seem to fit on the RXT.
The kit came with a metal extender piece which did seem to make the end of the steering rod the right length(ish), but only seemed to provide a simple nut/bolt option, which didn't seem logical in order to allow the assembly to swing.
I've attached a photo showing what it looks like currently. Can anyone comment as to whether this is ok, or whether I should be doing or fitting something else?

follow the steering cable inside the hull, right above the gas tank.
There is a tension screw on the black piece that the steering cable goes thru. turn that screw to correct the issue.
I will look but do a search on steering and user name shibby

this one has pics, i just did this last weekend worked great. good to have a helper to spot check while you are adjusting...
set the bars straight and measure, then turn the knob to align the pump nozzle a t eh abck of the hull. bars wont move, nozzle will.

btw remove the extension rod and keep the swivel mount.

So just to confirm, I should remove the extra piece that I've just fitted and go back to the original swivel joint?
And I'm assuming that there is plenty of adjustment on the front cable for this... it's not going to go off the end of the thread or anything?
