I also have ¼ inch play at the wheel, I see what appears to be a set screw in a metal ring and the metal ring has a spot weld to the shaft around the outer shaft near the pedals but the set screw seems to go to a blank hole is the hole supposed to go all the way through and is it supposed to contact the inner shaft? Thanks for the info
Hey sorry, just saw your post on my wall. I noticed the same on mine in regards to that collar. Tightening the set screw does nothing. The Polaris engineers are aware and apparently working on a fix. I'll let you know if I hear anything.
Thanks have no Idea what the original collar is used for. My guess would be production/assembly and or machining strayed away from engineering specs and it became excepted installed as a blank hole, but just a guess. That collar started with a function. If you get any info would appreciate feedback, In my case after I modified it, it now works perfect with as the manual calls for "0 free play" Now when they fix the angle drive seal leak next week I can start bragging about my Slingshot again. LOL
