Is it possible to put a hydraulic brake lever and a throttle lever from an ATV on the steering wheel of a Polaris razor. So  he can  use his hands.   This is for a disabled friend who cant press the brakes

Just my thoughts.  It's possible with some good design engineering.  I presume your friend has lost the function of both legs.  I don't think putting those controls on the steering wheel would work with any degree of safety.  During a turn, the throttle or brake actuators probably won't be in a position to actuate them if needed, especially in an urgent situation.  A control yoke (vs a steering wheel) with a throttle actuator could be made to work if you don't have to turn the yoke more than 90 degrees (power steering needed).  I would think the throttle (spring loaded to idle) and brake lever would be better accessible from a position on a center console.  Certainly won't be able to do any rock crawling because it takes both hands to maintain directional control without power steering.  Might be limited to slow speed trail rides (my favorite type of off-roading).  Also have to consider the strength of your friends arms and hands.  Most people can apply more brake pedal pressure with their legs by pushing against the back of the seat.  Here's a link to one advertiser:  http://utvpartsandaccessories.com/

There are automobiles with hand controls, but they have power steering and power brakes to make it easier to drive the vehicle.

      I have a MSU 500 and sometimes it acts sluggish in 4x4 and you can smell hot gear oil. 
      I'm Thinking it is something binding up the the transfer case or front differential but before I dig into it I wanted to see if anybody had a similar problem.
       
      Thanks,

      I had to rebuild my steering box recently and need to replace the 2 square dust boots on the box. Joyner does not have them in stock and probably won't anytime soon. Does anyone know of an alternate replacement for these? Any help would be appreciated

      I'm in need of a brake master cylinder for my ride.  Appears to be leaking between the reservoir and the cylinder (picture).  Is there a seal that I can replace inexpensively without buy a whole master cylinder assembly?  Can't tell if the master cylinder is the same as used on the Trooper because I don't have a Trooper parts manual.  I don't know if the master cylinder is different when they went to the 1100cc engine.  Has anyone had experience with master cylinder make for the Kinrod Joyner line of rides (I believe it's a German company)?  They are available on Amazon but the configuration isn't the same as OEM.
