Is this good for sitting down all the time? I ride my xtx on the trail 99.9 % of the time. I am about 5'11. Worried that it might make the bars too high.

It gives the steering a much more natural feel. I felt like I was driving a bus without it, but if you are only 5'11" I think it should be fine with the xtx riser. The mtx riser is bigger and I think it would be a bit tall. You will not regret it. The thing I like a lot about this kit also is that it tightens up the steering a lot.

This evening I had occasion to reattach my steering column after installing my supercharger and I wanted to post a few additional installation photos of the OFT kit.

Lower Steering column mounting bracket.




The internal bushing



Shaft goes the first bushing and the 2nd bushing is laid on top of the shaft.





Locking Plate.



Bending the tabs to ensure the steering column doesn't come loose on accident!

While the upper mount is designed to be seen, and is much nicer to look at, it follows the same principle the lower one does.

Bracket, Bushing, Steering Column, another bushing and the top bracket to hold it all in place.





If you are riding a Nytro and you don't have this kit installed, you are doing yourself a great disservice!
This is one of those rare MUST HAVE items on your sled.
Get one and get it installed.

The only thing I can think of that would make this any better, is if the fine folks at OFT Racing offered it in YAMAHA BLUE!!:face-icon-small-hap:face-icon-small-hap

Thanks for the Pic's Chris... As far as I know, we make wheels in bloo... if there were more interest in the same for the relocator, I'm sure we could make it so...

Want this one? :face-icon-small-ton

I think my sled will have you beat for blue this winter. Tunnel, entire skid, spindles and over half of the sled vinyl wrapped in blue. You better get on your horse.

Yamahas are meant to be blue!!!!!!!!!!

YOU SUCK! :face-icon-small-hap

NEXT YEAR I will get the tunnel OFF my sled and have it done in Blue.

This year was Structural Mods, next year will be cosmetic!

OFT relocator

I two have bought this kit for my nytro and must say the shipping was quick. The product is made top notch and the install instructions from the website are second to none. Was totally impressed and can't wait to see the difference it makes on my sled. I will looking at purchasing other items from OFT in the future.

Thanks! It took a long time to write instructions that made sense to the masses. I even had complaints they were TOO in depth!
