    Pro 785 Steering upgrade

    I recently purchased a Vilder racing steering system for my 97 Pro. Does anyone have any experience with installing one of these. I have already started mocking up the hood and looks like it will need to be cut so that the hood closes correctly but also noticed that the inside intake baffle will need to be cut as well. Pics would also be great if anyone has one.

    Nice find, i have one and yes you need to trim the hood and also the fire ex holder . On mine instead of cutting the compartment i took a propane torch and heated it up and sorta of remolded it not the prettiest but it works .

    Thanks for the info lugs. I have already grided out the front portion so that the lid now closes. I kinda like the idea of heating up the plastic. Did you do anything about the "eye sore" spot below the steering where the old steering stop mounted? That indend and screw holes looks awefull. Was thinking about filling that in flush somehow/
