    steering cable joint

    how often do you guys replace the steering cable ball/joint at the nozzle?

    after 50+ hours it`s pretty sloppy...

    Never. Hadn't been a problem for me on my '02. Do you ever shoot WD40 in there?

    after every ride i wipe waterproof grease in there. was going to pick up a spare until i see that it`s over $60.00 dayum...

    it`s tight going in the normal operating directions, just seemd a bit loose up and down... but that`s considered normal, ok...Thanks...

    It's a service requirement to seperate the joint, apply grease to the ball pin, then reconnect.

    How do you do that?, mine is one piece in the back, not the quick disconnect as in the front or on the trim ring...
