Fun, fun, fun. Sounds like you're hooked on EPS! Try a non-EPS Brute in a couple of months - you won't be able to stand it.:D

One thing that worries me is riders with less experience tend to get lulled into relaxing their grip and even one-handed steering - very dangerous. It doesn't bump steer very often, but it will eventually and if you don't have a sollid grip, you'll be very sorry.

Oh, I know...trust me. Even with the stabilizer you wouldn't want to ride one-handed.

Nice Vid Report, looks like the EZ-steer is a Winner, I bet they sell a ton of them after your Video gets out. Too bad there aren't any good rough rocky sections like in the Jemez Mountains to see how well it does w/rocks, you know a few of the trails I mean.
50mph is all you did but that terrain was flying by, looked like a great afternoon for a test ride and almost had the entire area to yourself..

Yeah...I know the trail you speak of in Jemez...It made my brother on his Grizz cry uncle...Dave and I with the new Elkas hardly noticed it. Can't wait to take it up there...and Sipapu.

You are going to love it SWBF.

Thanks NM, good review!

I called SuperATV and spoke with Corey? I think it was a couple days ago, I'm trying to talk my boss into buying an EPS for his Razr with me but he's a little concerned (and maybe rightfully so) about mud and water wreaking havoc on the system.

I see you've got a nice dry terrain out there to ride, anyone have any time/experience in a wetter/muddier environment with one of these EPS systems? My BF needs PS bad, but I'd of course want it to be consistent and reliable, not affected by the elements

Well, I can say everything looks very water-tight. Seals on all unit and controller connections and the unit itself had HD seals on the shafts and where the wires enter the unit so...I wouldn't be too concerned. I read as many reviews as I could from other forums where they are under water and abused and no one had a *****.

NMK, have seen your EZ Vid on other Forums, you are becoming a Star, lol.
Allot of the viewers are impressed with the Vid even if the EZ they need isn't for a Brute, they know it improved the Brute that much it will do the same for there's.
Too bad there isn't a EZ kit for the Prairie 650/700s,BF650sra, now there is a hard steering animal.

I had mine put on my Rene 1000 I had to call SuperAtv and asked about the Prairie and they said it may be down the pipeline so hopefully they do.
now on my rene the steering is so easy even in 4wd its crazy almost to easy I wish this was out when I had my Brute

That would be great if SATV brings it out for the SRA's and it would be worth the wait.

Wow...did I miss this one. The straight zerk works fine.

OK, I have developed a problem with my EZ Steer. It wants to turn left all the time. Something had happened to the torque bar system. I did a video and sent it to SuperATV and I am sure they will take care of it but in the meantime, it looks like the torque sensor is getting very hot being that close to the front exhaust. You guys with these probably better get some heat wrap or something and get it between it and the pipe. Not for sure this is the cause, but its likely it is.

See SWBF..probably good yours isn't on yet...we get to work the bugs out first..
