    I was just looking into this exact topic and Rocky Mountain ATV has a fiche available you can study.

    This is what I see for the R when I look at the steering box and rack part numbers:

    These are the steering box and rack part numbers for the X:

    I must say I'm a bit stumped just based on what I've seen. I also checked the EPS unit part numbers and they match. I was hoping to find a steering stop of some sort on the R, but it doesn't appear to have one.

    If someone figures this out I'd love to know what the difference is between the two.

    I have very little turning issues. Last weekend I was riding in some tight trails with an X3 and a few Pioneers. Only once did I have to back up where they didn't. Just power around the turns!

    I wouldn't call it a deal-breaker, but it is an inconvenience and is definitely noticeably worse than my XP1K I had. I frequently am doing 3-point turns in areas where my buddies are able to navigate normally. Like you mentioned, when it's possible I'll steer with the skinny pedal, but usually there's not enough room for that.

    If there ends up being a reliable way to achieve the X (or close to the X) turning radius on the R model I'll 100% go for it.
