Choosing the right set of rack and pinions for your RS1 is instrumental in the type of experience that you expect to have when driving. When it comes to having smooth steering performance, the rack and pinions that you choose have their work cut out for them. Luckily for you, the guesswork of which are the best for your UTV has been eliminated and it just comes down to which is the right one for your model of Side by Side. Vehicles like the Can-Am Maverick X3 are known to have steering rack issues, and although much better, the steering rack and associated pinions on the Polaris RS1 aren't impervious to damage, and can get bent askew, worn down, and busted up from time to time. Nothing is worse than a sloppy, unresponsive steering wheel, and an improperly functioning rack and pinion system could be the cause.
If the steering wheel on your Polaris RS1 is not straight when you are driving straight, you might have a broken or misaligned steering rack. It’s hard to say on steering wheel alignment, but many riders often suffer from what is colloquially known as rack shift. Rack shift is a common problem, and occurs when the nuts loosen slightly so the steering rack can slide around or shift to one side. In such a case, this issue can be fixed with a few turns of the wrench. But other steering rack issues or problems with the pinion gears can render a rack and pinion system useless. If this happens to your one-seater Polaris, a replacement RS1 rack and pinion assembly is only clicks away. And unlike the stock rack and pinion, aftermarket RS1 rack and pinion kits are much stronger and can withstand a far greater amount of force, be it torsional from spinning in the mud or impacts from going over whoops and bumps.
