Loose steering

I have a 2009 Prowler 700 XTX with tilt steering. The steering wheel is loose, has about an inch of play in it that makes it hard to drive. I was thinking about replacing the tilt mechanism with the updated AC part number 0505-886 and was wondering if they fixed this problem?

Any input would be great from you guys that have 2012 and newer prowlers. Thx

There has been some members that have changed over to the non tilt.....we have a member with a 2012 he should chime in and let you know if they changed them........I do know they say not to pull yourself in the buggy by grabbing a hold of the wheel.

I had a 2010 xtx and my steering had the same play in it. There was a member on here, haven't heard from him in a while but he did the straight steering shaft replacement and said it tightened it right up. Sorry I have no personal experience with this replacement but if I still had my Prowler this would have definitely been an upgrade I would have done.. I didn't really use the tilt much and from what I hear the non-tilt models never had this problem.

Looks great! I keep looking at steering wheels, but usually find something else that I need! Wheels (stock) and the 28" DOT tires are getting mounted. Inspection is next week, then get the new title, and plates! GEICO insurance was able to provide coverage at a reasonable price.

Thanks for the info. I'm still trying to figure out if Arctic Cat has fixed the steering issue with the updated part number without dropping $150.
