    98 Powder Special Steering Issue Steering went out on 98 powder special. Handle bars will still turn, and everything looks good as far as steering post. But when I turn the bars the swivel rack won’t move. Any help on this? Never really worked on steering issues before.

    Tring to determine how much movement should be in the bellcrank? I'm going through the steering and noticed movement when turning the handle bars. 1/16 to 1/8 side to side. If you giggle them you can see the assembly move as well as the bushing that goes in from the bottom of the nose. Whats...

    I ride a 2016 Arctic Cat 500 A couple weeks ago I noticed my steering has become a little loose and sloppy. I jacked it up and checked the wheels for play, no noticeable movement to indicate either ball joints or tie rods There is a very tiny amount of play in all directions with a slight...

    Last season I inherited my dads 2003 400 2x4 FIS. It was lightly driven and to the best of my knowledge never bashed around. I have some experience with quads and am very happy to have it. However, it has some quirks with the steering. I have gotten to the point where I don't like to ride it...

    My latest project was building a full hydraulic system for my Cat. Right now I am using the system to lift my 60" county plow. It works awesome! I have been on this idea for a couple years now and it wasn't until this winter I decided to see how deep the rabbit hole really goes. Here is...

    I'm new to the forum. I just picked up a 99 ZL 600 EFI with about 3000 miles. The previous owner hooked a ski in a culvert at low speed. The frame is straight and the skis sit straight but the handlebars sit about a quarter turn to the right (instead of 9 o'clock 3 o'clock I'm talking 10...

    Ok so if anyone has answered or looked at my other posts, I bought a 94 zr700 sort of on a whim for $100 in order to gain the experience in building something of my own. I have the engine and suspension and etc. all on, but today I noticed something strange. I doubt it is supposed to be this...

    I need some help with 2 problems we encountered this weekend on a 2003 570 Mountain Cat and a 2004 570 Bearcat. We were out riding in over foot of fresh powder at minus 20 to 30 degrees F. Here are the problems we had with both machines that I hope you can help me with: 1. After an...

    So got stuck riding the other day and as we were pushing out my buddy pushed on the handlebar a little too hard and bent something. I managed to get home but the bars were bent to the right, to keep the wheels straight. From what I can see the steering post is all one welded shaft, so that...
