Here's what I did instead of the bolt through mod:

I have a new KFX Kawasaki lil quad that I was going to do the bolt through the handlebar mod I seen on here. When I took it apart to do the mod, I noticed the slop was because the flat part at the end of the steering rod wasn't as thick as the space there. I found a washer and ground it down some to fit the void without being overly thick. I put it back together and it works great. This is easier than doing the bolt mod I believe, but I don't know if my way will last over the long haul like the bolt probably will. We'll see I guess, but it seems rock solid now.

I also trimmed the steering stops as I saw mentioned too. I noticed after the fact though that the steering wasn't even touching the stock stops so trimming them was a waste of time, at least on my quad. I was hoping to get more left/right travel in the steering but it seems the geometry of everything else prevents it from traveling any more.

That's pretty much exactly what I did. I was going to do the bolt thing but didn't have the right size. So I just put 2 washers in it with a smaller bolt and it's SSSOOOOOOO much better! I had already drilled out the hole for the bolt so I couldn't use the screw. What's the steering mod?
Motors Bad?

at 12.2 volts it acted like the battery was dead
