HAHA - o,k now that i have everyones attention - on my stock 09 700xtx i can turn steering wheel to the left and it rotates about 380 degrees and to the right it rotates about 560 degrees - and turning this sharp the steering arm rubs against my right front tire rim-- visually it looks like the tires are aligned properly - i am wondering if there is a malfunction in the steering box?

Any input would be great - eg. what turn radius your machine has?
Thanks:confused:

yup you steering box is about 1/3 of a turn to the left . jack it up wheels off the ground and rotate left and righ until you have equal amounts of rotation left and right . then check the tie rods for the equal amount of threads showing from the nuts . most likely the tie rods may have been changed and someone didnt know how to set the toe in , and tried to make the steering wheel straight with the tires without removing it from the column and making it stright with the tires and steering box . good luck
