You may have a adjustment issue. Mine does not feel loose at all at high speeds. It gets tighter the faster you go.

I was thinking that. I'm going to have the dealer check when I hit 50 hours. I did not think that the power steering had any adjustment to beside a wheel alinement.

It many not? It may be a sensor or maybe they can adjust it via the computer. No matter what it should not be loose at high speeds.

I agree Coppertop I think that could be the case. I just put new tires on Pitbull Rocker and the really hook up and i guess it could be making the front a bit light. I did not feel it as much with the stock tires.

According to the information I was given before buying my Touring, the EPS is completely off by 30 MPH. This seems to be accurate according to my experience.
