Started installing the EST onto my Honda Pioneer the other day and finished it today. I had a EST unit from my Ranger that I had only just put on in Jan/2013 and sold the Ranger in April so took the EST off so that I could put it onto my new machine.I took the left front Fender off to make things easier to see and to work . It took a bit of thinking and figuring out were to place it etc: The hardest part was the mounting bracket,this took me 3 tries to get it right.The bracket in the pic has been changed due to me not being able to install the Fender back on,I had to cut off the control mounting plate and move it to left about 2". One thing I did have to do was to cut up the Honda's factory steering shaft so that I could make 2 short shafts with U-joints to connect to the EST unit. I didn't want to cut any of the plastic etc: but I did have to cut just a bit of the plastic heat deflector.Here's some pics of it installed. BTW took it for a bit of a ride and it steers easy,[not that the Pioneer steered hard]. :lol:
