Re: just recieved my 09 riot today and had some questions

The Riots steering is bad for a couple reasons.

check this link if your steering has a "binding" feeling:

The hard steering is also in part to the 1.5:1 steering gear box ratio (1.5 turns lock-to-lock). I'm currently installing a 2:1 steering reducer which will set me at 3 turns lock to lock and respectively a ~50% reduction in steering effort. I'll post pictures and results when done with the mod either this coming or next weekend.

As a comparison, my friends with Polaris RZR's are 2.5 turns lock to lock and it really shows with their low steering effort.
