    sxr steering cable install

    I have a friend with an sxr who is complaining about the lack of steering, apparently the cable is slightly longer at one end than the other? is there a chance it is in the wrong way around? if so which end goes to the pump and vice versa.
    Thanks Norm.

    no I think that the bulkhead fitting at the pump cavity is different than the one at the handlebars I dont think its possible to do it backwards. You could have the wrong cable, it could be adjusted badly too.

    Re: sxr steering cable install

    if you put the wrong way round which is easy to do it wont go full lock one way and is near impossible to centre the nozzle when in wrong.
    I cant remember off hand which end is which but there is a bit of white tape on the outer which i think went to the handle bar end.
    More than likely he has it wrong find another ski and measure from the hull to the end of the outer at the pump to compare, my ski is at work so cant go measure it now.
    currently riding sxr or what ever has gas in it!!

    Yes, same thing Jason said. We replaced the steering cables on 2 SXR's with UMI poles and the cable can go in backwards. It will connect up but will not turn fully in one direction. I cant remeber which way either though
