I really didnt like how the steering wheel felt when i was driving my T2 felt like i was reaching for it so i cut off the mount on the column took i die grinder and ate the slot in the dash down farther made a new bracket dropped it down like 3-4 inches it feels great now , i didnt like how the clutch and brake pedal was either it didnt feel like i had enough foot room to pick up my feet just to push the clutch or brake in so i cut out bout 2-3 inches on the horizontal part of the pedal and welded them back together and belive me feels like a totally new machine made it alot more comfortable with them two mods

I kinda felt the same way as far as the leg room goes.I removed my seats and drilled new holes and moved em back about 2 inches.

Funny, our seats are almost ALL the way forward. Of course we are smaller humanoids. I did put spacers under the front of the seats to tilt rearwards. The seats were too straight up for us.

Thats a good idea on the steering wheel. I'm going to have to look at mine and see if that would improve the way mine feels for my wife and I. My wheel was always offset a little to the right, about 1" or so, so I moved it to the left to center it on the seat and like it better. Didn't think about lowering it .

Thanks for the ideas, moved the driver's seat back about 1 1/2 inches today, passenger side hits the gas fill tube already, so no moving that side.

gates, need pics of the cage mod. I have wanted to do the same.

The steering wheel has never bothered me because in most of my race cars the wheel was never on center. In road-racing the distance to the wheel is extend the arm full length and the wheel should hit the fold of your wrist. Circle track, as close as is comfortable. So I don't care where the thing is as long as it is on the trail. LOL!

i dont have my camera rightnow but it was really simple all i did was take a grinder and grind off the welds holding the bung on the cage did that to all 4 corners then i got my pipe cutter and took 3/4 in off the front of the cage and bout 2 1/2 off the back and it worked out perfectly dropped it just enough took look alot better but still have sufficent head room in case the cage would get mashed in event of a roll over

it wasnt the centering of the wheel that drove me nutz is was how high up it felt like i was reachin for it

      New machine, tilt wheel won't "tilt" and I don't want to force anything.  Owner's manual says to pull pin, adjust, release pin in desired position.  I can feel the pin moving, but wheel won't lower.  Any suggestions instead of taking it all the way back to the dealer?  Thanks in advance...

      HELP - my wife and i just bought a 2013 joyner trooper 1100 and we rode for 2 evenings with no problems. Went to ride last night and all of a sudden it acted like something was catching up and it didn't want to move easily. Whatever it was must've broke and now it moves with no problem but is making a rubbing/grinding noise somewhere in the backend. Could it be wheel bearing, differential, or something in cv shaft. Any info or similar experiences is appreciated.

      i have a 2017 cub cadet challenger 750 camo, after a month of nonstop work with the pandemic i was finally getting a chance to ride it. it would not start, the battery was dead, went to charge the battery and noticed a mouse had chewed a yellow wire one of2 going to a block of some kind in battery box, it is tied into the 2 fuse relay breakers  attached to the starter relay. there is a red with stripe wire that goes to a harness below the rectifier in engine compartment, it has no power to it with multimeter and the fuse block is getting real hot. other than that the dash lights up, but no readout and the gauges dont cycle, the fuel pump does not start. on the fuel pump i checked the red wires to the cdi and both have contact and are intact but one does  not have power when the key is on and there is no spark  i tried starting fluid. i have swapped out the cdi from my cousins  same year and model, also the ecu and the main relay. i have no idea where to look now. his has broke the shim again and will not start. also i did notice that i wiggled a wire connector going to a sensor on the engine and a couple lights came on on the dash, the stirring wheel one and check engine but only did it once and i cant get it to do it again. i have looked over the harness for anymore damage and have found none.
      has anyone seen this problem before, is it wiring? ground? what do i need to check next. the place i bought it has no service the guy said he could only swap parts and try. sent me to another place over an hour from me  and that guy on the phone said he was covered up and didnt know when he could look at it so he must be busy lol. besides i dont want to have them charge me $3000 to replace everything on it before they get going.
      my advice is do not buy a cub cadet, we thought we were getting a cub cadet and it turns out it is a cheap chinese pos. i still love my cub but wish i had known this before i bought it and i would not have.
      any help would be appreciated thanks

      The  dashboard display  shows a blinking “o”. Four wheel drive does not engage. The accustomed engagement sound is no longer heard. Has anyone a suggestion on where I might troubleshoot? Thanks.
