How do you like the power steering,and how much better is it than the non power steering.

Glad you were finally able to get out for a ride! It's a shame you had to wait so long to get out on that sweet ride of yours! what finally came out as far as repairs required to get back up and running?

The power steering is awsome,the best part is you dont feel any shock in your arms

Don't make me hit the buy now button,Question:does the ratio seem better with the power steering,or do you still have to turn the wheel a bit before you get any response when driving.

Let go of the button and step away from the computer,,,,lol I didnt notice how responsive the steering was but it was like driving a cadilac through the woods

just a question not trying to stir up things .. don't the power steering models also have tilt steering wheel ?

[and isn't that a problematic area, loose knuckle ??? ]

I think Joe had an affordable option to eliminate the tilt if somebody wanted too.

I believe he changed his.Not sure if RD did or not.
Yes I did get rid of the tilt cost about 35 bucks to do.

Still have the tilt on mine, and it is still tight. Brian your Prowler looks great! The stock 700 power is great, not sure if I'd want more power or not?
