Contact super atv. I don't think a lot of people have these yet to help you out. Give some feedback on it once you put some miles on.

Just installed their kit on my 550XP. I have the same "play" you mentioned. I understand that it is the design of the system. The "play" does not exist when I am in gear and underway. The instructions have this documented.

Check out SuperATV's forum thread for more info on their system.

Phil, can you tell us a little about how your install went and what you think of the system so far? Do you have any experience with an EPS equipped XP versus this setup?

Edit: Phil, I saw your detailed post in the Super ATV thread. Please keep us posted with your ongoing thoughts.
