In addition to the steering wheel, the differences between a machine with and without power steering is night and day. Should your power steering go out, however, there are a few things you can do before you tear your machine apart looking for the issue. Obviously, restarting your machine by turning it off and back on again -- ensuring to remove the key completely -- is a great place to start, but one thing else you might try is to unhook the battery and then hook it back up again. Blown fuses can also mess with your Genera’s power steering. The fuse box is under the driver side back seat, and there should be one spare fuse in the fuse box. Many riders just buy a box of fuses and carry them around when they’re out and about, just in case. And while we don’t recommend this, some General owners have told us they use fuses with five amps more than factory and haven’t had problems since. Like blown fuses, broken wires in the harness under the fuse box can cause power steering issues as well, causing the General to throw a 520230 over 31 code. This code, however -- which is the code for IC CAN Communication with the EPS -- can also be remedied with a computer reflash to reset the electronic power steering. So whether you’re looking for a new steering shaft fastener because your shaft came off the spline, or some steering limiter cables to keep a decent angle on your CV joints, give us a holler and we’ll help you out with all your steering-related needs!
