I recently bought an old Polaris 340 Sprint for my 8 year old. It's light, short, and in in reasonably good shape- almost like a Bravo (but with more power and without the shakes). It even has electric start, but it has one real problem: sloppy steering. When the handle bars are turned one way or the other, the skis may not be be pointing in exactly the same direction! I have tightened up the (easier) to get to tie rod ends and tightened the ski mounts but it is still pretty sloppy. This is a trifle dangerous, because he doesn't have as much control as he needs to have and he almost hit a tree on a trail we took today (not fast).
Am I missing something here? Anything else I can do before I take it into the local shop at $80 per hour?
Thanks in advance for any advice.
