Anybody know why they haven't brought this " mechanical assist " power steering & taller spindles to the trail sleds? The race sled has had this stuff for several seasons now. Maybe we'll see it for MY 23 along with some fresh plastic and a new headlight.

We had a couple older gents bring their sleds in (Summit 800 175") and they had installed EZ Steer power steering units on them. They like to do low speed exploring. It looked a little funny but worked well! : )

Usually the race sled tech does eventually trickle down to the consumer models. I guess well see.

Because it would cost too much in the assembly line...too many moving parts in the system. Remember in 2008 BRP dropped 130-133 moving parts down to just 30...if I remember correctly. Hahah

And while they're at it, give the consumer 600R the boost injectors and a mild tune so Doo's 600 can beat Poo's 650 and everybody can have their claimed favorite HP level (140).
You think a 600 with boost injectors will give you 140 hp? Even the poo 650 isn't rated at that.

They talk about mechanical power steering, is this the power steering that's on the ATV's ?

I'm hoping for power steering on a sled someday, & that would have me going to the showroom in a heart beat !!
This is what is known as power steering.
In the first picture the top steering is from a 2021 600RS snowcross and the bottom is out of my 2021 Expedition Sport basicly any Gen4 except XRS with power stering.
Second pic it is on the left.
