Hi guys I have been having issues with my power steering for quite some time now, and I carelessly ignored the warnings I was getting by just shutting the bike off and starting it again when the power steering wasn't working which always solved the problem, but now the only time the PS will work is when i first start it (after its been sitting for example over night). As long as i don\t shut the bike off its ok, but as soon as i shut the bike off and try and restart the PS does not work and i get the warning light on the dash. Any suggestions? I tested the battery with a voltage meter, and the battery was showing just over 13, when i start the bike its showing over 14, is that to high maybe?
Thanks

That is charging voltage, 14.7 is as high as that should be. Your issue lies somewhere else, I would purchase/obtain a manual and follow the diagnostic route set forth by Polaris.

      Oil is getting in the air box from crankcase vent tube, I put the two hoses that go to the air box together then something started to smoke on the front of the engine. There is a filter? In the line I blew that out.

      having an issue with the unit when running under a load up a hill or in high gear, seems like the belt is slipping, there is a clapping sound coming from the primary clutch like it releases and snaps back in. i don't think I should have a noise like that. this is a friends unit and he has already replaced the primary twice with the same result.
      not sure where to look next

      My 2014 750 king quad stalls sometimes when I touch or turn the handlebars,the problem has gotten worse,my machine has 475 miles and is only trail ridden,I have a new factory battery and i have 14.2 volts when the quad is running and 13.3 on the battery when not running,also using a multimeter there is no change in volts when turning the bars until it does stall,If I pull the 40 amp power steering fuse it will not stall.......I've been told its the ECU,Hate to buy one if thats not the problem,but its kinda leaning towards that,,,,,need some opinions.

      I WANTED TO UPGRADE THE CARBURATOR ON MY 1992 BIG BEAR 350, SO I ORDERED A NEW CARB FROM EBAY.  ACCORDING TO THE WRITE-UP IT WAS A GOOD FIT FOR BIG BEARS FROM 1988 TO 1996.  WHEN I REMOVED MY ORIGINAL CARB I NOTICED THAT IT WAS DIFFERENT FROM THE NEW CARB MY CARB HAD TWO THROTTLE  CABLES THE NEW CARB ONLY HAD ONE CABLE.  HOW CAN I MAKE THIS CARB WORK ON MY TWO CABLE THROTTLE?
