Get Access Underneath

It’s likely you’ll need to remove the plastics to get access to where you’ll install the stabilizer. Whenever you are doing this, make sure you keep track of all the mounting hardware and the location of any electrical components that may be moved during the process.

Determine the Best Spot

Find the best position for the stabilizer to go. The primary goal is to find a place for the stabilizer to be mountain that allows the steering to turn stop to stop in the middle of the stabilizer’s travel without any interference from other components. In some models there are better positions than others, so you just need to work it out for what you have under the hood.

Mount Round Clamp

Next you will mount the round clamp of the steering stabilizer to the steering stem. Mount the clamp in a way that the flange is at a 90 degree angle with the stem.

Mount Square Clamp

Next you will mount the square clamp to your desired location on the frame rail. Tighten the bolt to 30 foot pounds so it stays put.

Complete a Turn Test

With the stabilizer installed loosely you can fine tune the mounting position by turning the ATV in both directions to set the hardware in a position that has the body in the center of the shaft travel. Make sure to choose a spot where the max travel isn’t hit in either direction.

Now you can reinstall the plastics and move on to the next job.
