Cheapest power steering option.

I have used this forum for much valuable information, and thought that it was time to give back. I have a '15 900s white lightening. I would have bought a power steering 900, but money was tight. Well I got the idea to try to install used factory power steering. Guess what, it works. All you need is the power unit (around $200 on eBay) and the upper, and lower steering shafts ( another $50-$75). There are three wires from the diagnostic plug that have to be spliced. ( yello, orange, and blue). They go to the power unit, and the other connector is power, and ground. That's it. Polaris won't sell the patch harness, so I go the connectors, and enough wire to splice from a harness that was bad. So with a little bit of leg work, you can have Factory power steering for less than $300.

Cheapest power steering option.

Very nice. Going to eBay now. May hit you up if I come across an issue.
Btw. Does it matter what model it comes off of ( say an 800)? I have a 16 white lightening trail so I would use the same components as you.

Re: Cheapest power steering option.

The unit I got has part #2411826 I'm not sure if the other units will work. That seems to be the newer number, but I'm not sure. Just make sure you get the bracket to hold it, and the correct upper, and lower shafts. They are slightly different lengths.

Re: Cheapest power steering option.

This is awesome. Thank you for sharing. This makes justifying going to power steering so much easier!

Would you mind posting pics of the setup?

Re: Cheapest power steering option.

I'll try to get pics today, but it looks OEM. Because it is! The only part you need to know is the 3 wires from the diagnostic plug are yellow, orange, and green. They will match the three from the salvage plug. You might be able to wire it up without the plug, but the pins a very fine. Besides you would have to hardware it.

Also if anyone is interested I'll have the correct lower shaft available. I bought a few different versions assuming they were the same. I paid $25 plus shipping.

Re: Cheapest power steering option.

I was looking at that route, but this take zero fabrication. It's much simpler, and is meant for a rzr.

Re: Cheapest power steering option.

Thanks criv911, I almost bought a corolla eps until I saw this. It would've been cheaper but your right I would've been fabricating. I noticed all of Polaris eps are the same unit. My 2015 900s is already wired for it. Bought the unit with bracket and cover for 199 and the upper and lower shafts for 70. Bolted right up and plugged right in. Awesome. eBay has all the parts. Thats especially not having to fabricate one thing. Thanks again
