    Fix - Steering, Stiff, 2002, Cruiser, FX140, Yamaha_05-27-22

    I have an old Waverunner of which I am the original owner. I have struggled with stiff-steering for years (I am sometimes hesitant to use service departments for a multitude of personal reasons). I assumed the cause of this problem was salt crystals in the steering column. I seem to remember someone telling me that. So until I could prove it false I accepted it. Well after 20 years I have finally proven it to be a false statement. Here are a couple of videos I made to shed some light on the stiff-steering problem.

    I don't think Yamaha has plans to make any more of this subassembly, but it can be found on the aftermarket
