I have a 2004 Polaris 550F Super Sport with steering issue. Was hoping someone could help. I had the right torsion/steering arm replaced last week because of the formentioned problem and that it had a huge bend in it, thinking that would fix it. while sitting still ski's and handle bar are tight, when you get the sled moving at any rate of speed the handle bar seems to have play in it, but the ski's still feel tight. Its like having play in your trucks steering wheel and your tires are still straight. Any advice would help, stuck on this one.

Thanks

Does the machine dart from side to side on the trail? Or is it actual play in the steering? You should be able to feel any play with the machine sitting still. If its darting back and forth then you need to align your skis. If its got play then check all the heim joints in the steering system, including the one under the exhaust.

Also check the bushing at the bottom of the steering post. If that's sloppy, the steering will be sloppy.
