    RXP to RXPX steering cable problem.

    Hey guys, done a few searches but couldnt find anything.

    i recently installed rxpx might be rxtx handle bars on my 05 rxp.
    i have everything sorted but i have a problem with my steering cable. it sits on an angle from the point it bolts to the steering bracket to the actual steering. would it be because i used my 05 cable or are the rxtx bars different? not sure what i have i just know they are x series. it seems to be binding and does not feel smooth. my cable has been a bit stiff but always felt linear. now it feels funny.

    so what have people done with the cables, do i have to use a X series cable?
    i have read somewhere that the x series use i type of ball joint somewhere, but have not been able to find a picture.

    any help will be appreciated.

    Thanks.

    My skis are 2015 RXPX and uses this type of bolt on a swivel to allow for the angle. Ignore the black billet piece (that's part of my pro series steering set up I installed).

    And here it is bone stock (RXPX). Not sure if this helps or not.
