Steering Workout on My MXZ800

Question:

Dear Motorhead,

I have a 2008 MXZ800 and I really have to wrestle it thru the corners. I hear that BRP has changed the steering geometry on the 10′ sleds. I would like to update these parts if it isn’t too costly.

Any thoughts?

Randy

Response:

Thanks for your email!

The change in the steering ratio arm on MY10 XP’s effectively reduces steering effort.

The part actually was used on the MY09 XR 4 Strokes to counter the greater ski weight they carry.

I am intrigued by your comment though. I haven’t experienced heavy steering effort on MY08 or MY09 XP’s. Are you using longer than stock carbides or have you adjusted the front arm limiter or front arm shock preload?

If not then I suspect you would benefit from the updated steering arm on the MY10’s.

I have not verified with BRP if the parts interchange – however I suspect they should.

Hope this helps,

Motorhead Mark
