    Power steering problem

    Fella's, any of you experience your power steering go out? I lost mine and a code flashed. It was ten something, i.e. 1014 or something to that nature. i would have written it down, but I expected the problem to remain. About a half hour later, the code went away and the steering came back. Chasing demons. Anybody else have this issue arise?

    Nope, but the eps sucks on the street. Mine feels weaker than my buddys, too.

    I need to unplug mine to tell if it's even working. I'm not sure what the electric is supposed to feel like, but it sure doesn't feel like much! I was expecting more.

    I agree there... I had expected it to be a little less resistance. I do like the feel it has, just kinda figured it would be a little easier.

    The best way to tell if it's working is to turn the machine off, then turn the wheel. The turn the key to the on position, not started, and feel the difference. It should be pretty noticeable. The main reasons for power steering are to prevent major feedback event such as a rock snapping the wheel and spraining your wrist. Plus at the end of a hard ride for several hours you can really tell a difference in how tired you are, at least that was my impression last weekend.

    I know if you leave the key on a code comes up for the power steering, but I think it just turns the power steering off till you start it or turn the key off. Just a safety thing or something so you don't burn the power steering up
