You're going to enjoy the SteerLite Bushings very much, I get countless follow-up emails from customers telling me how much they like them. I even had a customer just last weekend take the time out of his day to call me on the phone and thank me for making them, said he couldn't believe the improvement they made.
600+ sets sold and still counting!

That's great to hear. I assume these are only made for Arctic Cat? My Honda 350 is very difficult to steer.

Get the steerlites and any other bushings for your machine from Rick. I bought steerlites and shock bushings for my 400 and a-arm bushings and shock bushings for my 300. Steerlites made a big difference in the slow winding bush trails and in winter with extra plow weight on front. Don't just think about it, do it, do it, do it.

Lol....I have the steerlites ordered. And any further bushings that I purchase will indeed be from RTR.

You'll love the steerlites and the 500 has to be one of the most reliable machines out there. We have an 05 with 6000 hard miles on it with just normal maintenance, still going strong. The SO has had this in more mud and water than most people would ever attempt and the only thing that stops it is getting it high centered. It's a great machine and RTR's products are great

That's good to hear!! Have you got yours snorkeled? What size tires are you running?

A shout out to RTR. I ordered the steerlites and received them in 4 days. I am on the eastern tip of the continent in Newfoundland, Canada. That's pretty impressive service. Thanks Rick!!

Due to the hectic season I haven't hat the chance to install them yet. Heading down south on Saturday so it will have to wait until after the Christmas season is over. I will definitely be back with an update!

I went out and bought a set of tires yesterday. Wanted to drop down a size from the 27" Mud Lite XTR's. While at the store I noticed the Wild Thangs on sale. Loved the look of them so I figured what the heck. More aggressive tread than the XTR so dropping down a size probably didn't help at all. I bought 26x9x12 fronts and 26x11x12 rears. The tires weigh a total of 96 pounds so I'm hoping this will be ok. Will post back when I get a chance to try them out. I don't know anyone else who has these other than myself so I have no idea how they will wear, or how good they will work. Certainly is a nice looking tire.

Well, I'm back from my Florida Christmas vacation. Weather was great there, awful here!!

I have a question about charging battery. From what I've been reading it appears to me that I can charge the battery (using battery tender junior) through the cigarette lighter adapter on the pod. Is this correct? I have a tender and the cig lighter adapter, so is it just that simple? Thanks. I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and New Year!!
