    No doubt. More than happy to pay my fair share. You are going to alot of extra effort to be a good guy. It isn't like you doing this to get rich. Besides, I am getting a quality looking product that would have been mega more on a commercial site!!! I am in for whatever more you need!!! Let me know!!! Thank you for the the "team" play and expertise!!

    That would be the steering pinch bolt at the bottom towards the front where the steering shaft attaches. That was indeed part of the recall we all had to do. Make sure that sucker is torqued down correctly cause I started with no play and ended up with play after they did that part of the recall. Took 2 trips back for them to get it right.


    I have had the steering recall done, way back when. Not had any steering problems. Glad they are looking at it.

    A little clarification of the earlier post that I asked about the possible steering issue. Dropped my Slingshot off yesterday afternoon for the swingarm and brakes system recall from back in late spring. (Yes I know it is an old one. Usually don't procrastinate, but did on this. Guess I didn't want to miss any ride time during good weather.) The dealership is the one who has decided to look at my steering. They told me that they have seen several issues with bolts in the steering with the late in the year 16's and especially the 16.5's like mine. I bought it there and it is still under warranty, so they want to make sure it is right. Which I appreciate. I have had no steering issues myself though. When I originally made the appointment, the young lady kind of made it sound like it was a recall or campaign by the manufacturer, which it is not. I am in the auto resell business, so I am very aware of recalls. The NHTSA has all the manufacturers so scared they make recalls when someone farts sideways!!! Not ever surprised to hear of recalls/ campaigns on anything!!! Sorry if I alarmed anybody thinking there was another problem, not my intent. I just wanted to clarify the info I found out.

    No hurry for me either. Central Indiana weather has shut me down for awhile. I like the bigger pins also. Will pay as soon as I get the info.

    The thread is old (didn't want to start a new one from some older recall, like the swing arm). What I am saying about the steering update isn't old. Was just told this on 11/4/17. Curious if anyone else had heard of it.

    After much procrastination, I am finally taking my 2016.5 Slingshot in for the swing arm & brake recall. Don't need the fuel line done since I jnstalled a steel braided. I made the appointment with one of the women who works there and not the service mgr. She said they will also be doing a steering update. She didn't know exactly what it was but had to do with something in the rack and pinion. She didn't know if it was a recall or just an update. Anyone know more about this? Just curious more than anything.

    I think it has something to do with maintaining and cleaning our vehicles also. I clean something on mine ever time out and if I heard a noise from the rear I would keep an eye out while wiping her down and like you I have a solid 2016.5 also in the fastest red color, but not near 25k yet. Of course I didn't get mine but a couple months back either. We are headed to Daytona tomorrow for Biketoberfest so that will be a few more miles added.

    Illinois is the Fighting Illini. So yes you here Let's go Illini. Lately you usually here booooooooo or you suck. It's hard to hear the boos only because I get to see the hard work the guys put in. I think we may get a win Saturday though Rutgers is really bad. @CDCAMEL6 when you come to town we need to meet up I will give you the behind the scenes tour of the new facilities on the athletic campus.


    Would like that. Definitely plan on making a basketball game or 2!!
