Re: tilt steering problem

They shoot up easily enough, require a bit more effort to get back down. Make sure you're pulling the release thing the right way!

Re: tilt steering problem

I had some problems too.Awhile back while riding i had stopped for beer break and when i got back on my steering wheel was all the way up.So i pulled it back down,rode a little further and stopped once again to shoot some video,got back on and it was all the way up again.By this time i was counting my empty cans i was carrying along to see if that was where the problem was at.But there just wasnt quite enough empties to justify my problem so i pulled the steering wheel back down,cracked open another beer,and focused video camera on steering wheel.It was only then that i realized that the beer was tasting real good but that i did have a steering problem.I ended up replacing the steering shock for $100.00.

Re: tilt steering problem

Mine did the same thing. Take it off and do some adjusting to the lever that releases the shock. You will probably find that the lever is not adjusted properly.

Mine did the same thing when it was -20 degrees here a few days ago. Once I brought it in the garage and thawed it out it started locking again like it is supposed too. I've also noticed that it doesn't want to lock if it gets really dirty too.

Re: tilt steering problem

This is a major liability for polaris and they should address this problem ASAP. this could easily cause someone to lose control while driving!

Re: tilt steering problem

Mine will stay locked but when I adjust it, it unlocks and doesnt lock again, but this only happens when it is cold out like Pegleg said.

Re: tilt steering problem

Mine stuck right where I like it and I don't regularly adjust it. It kinda sucks for others that want to adjust it but they should get thier own RZR. No way its worth a $100 to me to replace it.
