    Default Steering noise

    2014 rts not moving, at idle, pressure on bars either direction, you would swear it need power steering belt replaced or adjusted.

    I don't think there is a " belt " in the system ...... I suggest you try this .... with the motor off - try turning the handlebars ..... then with the motor on try it again ....is there any difference ???? .... If not the DPS may have failed. .... This was a recall back in 08-09 spyders, but I haven't seen a lot of this after the initial failures ..... good luck .... mike

    As I understand the system the electric power assist does not activate until the vehicle is rolling. Ergo, when stopped turning the bars is your muscle power alone.

    There is a motor down there I believe, I think I would slip it into the dealer, you could have a issue going on!

    Pardon my misinterpretation. As Mike said, you should check for noise both with just the key on and with the engine at idle. I think the DPS is one of those modules that does not activate until the engine is running. At this link, https://can-am.brp.com/on-road/us/en...ts-iframe.html, go in the RTS SE6, Fiche 07 Steering and look at part 118, the power steering module; no belt there, just an electric motor system. If it's making noise I think Mikey's right; have a dealer check it out. Ouch! It's an expensive critter.
