    Just got an X...issue?

    I just bought an new RXP-X and i noticed that the handle bar turns completely to the right and stays put, but when i turn completely to the left, theres something that moves it back to the right about 2inch's. Also, when i turn left i hear something as if there is something stuck or pulling on a cable.

    How can i adjust it?

    Take that thing back to the dealer, and slap 'em while you're there!

    Is it an 08? Check and make sure fuel line is not rubbing on steering cable up front. There ws a recall on this.

    check your steering and opas in back.

    Also check your intercooler hose clamps, and I would replace worm gear stock clamps for ss t bolt clamps.

    Check that both 4.5 inch worm gear clamps on exhaust mid pipe are tight, and a gain i would replace with ss t bolts but that is just me.

    yup, its an 08.

    Ill try to check all those things. i havent really looked at the problem.

    Just to double check though. When the handle bar is turned completely to one side it should just stay there without resistance correct?

    I will take a look at my ski tomorrow AM. I never noticed the steering doing this, but it could be normal. Let you know tomorrow. My ski had mods now, tho.

    Also, I would check and tighten all clamps up per the post above.

    My steering doesn't do what yours is doing, checked it this morning. It could also be one of the 4" air tubes hitting the steering cable up front.

    Question

    Hey I'm Otacon's friend,

    His steering issue seems to be coming from the back, we checked yesterday night and didn't see anything hitting in the front. The sound that we hear come from the opas.

    Also, not trying to thread jack but since it's related to stearing, I just bought a used 06 rxp and notice the steering a little stiff, anyone recommend anything to loosen it up a bit? Was going to try some wd40 but just asking in case anyone knows anything better then that.

    If you think it is the OPAS. Take the bolt out on the bottom of the steering nozzle that attaches OPAS and recheck steering. Something else to check. Make sure the bolts on either side of the steering nozzle that attaches the OPAS are just snug not tight.
