    Install of Worx Steering

    Collected my worx steering system from the factory during the week and today attempted to install it.

    I've read numerous install reviews and nearly all of them note the difficulty of removing the O.T.A.S Magnet bracket from the OEM steering column. My friend and I could find no logical way of getting it off without snapping it. After 10-20 mins of attempting to remove it, the inevitable happened and it snapped.

    So off to JSW tomorrow to collect a new magnet bracket and to finish the install.

    My disappointment was relieved a little as the actual install was missing the actuator bracket so I couldn't have completed the fitment anyway.

    I've got pictures of most of the install so when it's all completed I'll post some pics and explanations for anyone thinking of getting the steering setup.

    Good things come to those who wait and all that.

    A little trick my dealer taught me is to file the inside of the locking tabs . if this makes any sense. This way the magnet will pop out easier. I saw him do one this way easy as. I got mine out ok. But when I went to install it in the WORX stem I broke it.

    Nearly there! How do I get the correct tension in the throttle cable? Currently I have a fair amount of slack in the cable. See pics attached. Any help appreciated.

    A small spring helps ... and you need to back out the threaded end at the finger throttle ...

    I have the bottom threaded piece adjusted all the way in, and then made final adjustments with the top adjustable nut. Like waterpig said you will need to adjust this out. Mine is about 3/4 out. Fine tune it when it is on the bar.

    I also gave the whole lot a light spray of LANOX help keep the salt out. And lube the cable with cable lube. You get it from moto shops.and grease the 3 rub spots.

    Picked up my bars and grips today and finished off the install tonight ready for a ride on Sunday.

    Looks absolutely great and and feels very nice, looking forward to riding it on Sunday.

    Looks good mate. You might want to run the cable behind the bottom bar and down the hole. I had mine where yours is and after first ride there was a wear mark from rubbing.it was only a matter of time before it would have worn through.
