Default 2017 King Cat vertical steering post

Has anyone installed a vertical steering post on the new king cat? If so, will the kit for the 1100 fit?

I'm not so sure it needs verticle steering as much as just a taller riser. The factory one is short. And a lower seat. It's like riding with a big fat pillow between your legs.

What Bacon said.....I ended up putting a 6.5" riser in place of the 4.5" riser it came with. I didn't like being hunched over while riding standing up.


Along with that I think the steering support structure is slightly different on the King Cat, so I don't know if the bolt on supports for the vertical post will line up right. I have not checked this however, just some thoughts.

I've done it ready
Order all the parts off 2016 m7000
Works great
Cut hole by were your recoil handle would be for the bottom two bolts
Took bout 2.5 hrs

Hands down better then standard steering
Not even close how better the sled handles

Finishing this up tonight. It’s definitely possible - I ended up using parts from kit and from the 2016 like was mentioned above. I’ll post more details/pics later. Feels like it puts bars in a great position.

I finished his last week. I ordered the kit from that was offered from 12-15 and the parts from the 16 hcr (poster above stated the year model) - the single post Bay the gas tank is a better fit
From 16 model ó the dual post would
Work from either. The kit or parts from a 16 will work. Iím pretty sure youíll need to stack a few washers if you use the kit to make the single support tall enough.

Disregard the switches - ordered these for my mountain cat and love them - ordered them for the kin cat and ..... they donít work - ha - should have read the listing a little closer.

Anyone have any pictures or details for doing the vertical steering post on a 2014 m9000?
Still not really sure how this modification works?
