today i was playing around the yard and went to turn arounf and boom. i hit a stump and it was pretty hard, i smashed my chest on the bars and hit the kill switch. well my question is, there seems to be play in the bars and when i turn them slowly it squeals. do i just have to grease some places up and the play is just normal?

When you are turning in a direction, is there a way that doesn't turn its normal radius. Im sorry I cant think of the words. When I bent my post, I could turn right normal, but I could only turn left maybe 50% of its normal turning radius. There was some more play when I try to turn left. Hope this helps.

The rider select on the fusions sadly comes loose over time and running into that stump probably only sped up the process. In october I fought with figuring out how to get the "slop" side to side out of my steering and finally ended up pulling the whole console off and tightening the bolts that hold the rider select in place and that fixed my problem. As long as it is not too bad you can probably get away with waiting til after the seasons over, unless you have some free time! Oh, and the squeak is probably the bushing on the steering post where it angles under the engine, pull the air box and you'll see the steering post and the bushing, mine seized up last year and my steering got insanely hard so I hit it with some good grease with a needle point, worked the bars back and forth and it cleared that problem right up. Hope this helps!
