The Honda Pioneer is an incredible vehicle, but it’s not perfect. There are certain things we hear owners commonly complain about. One of these is the Honda Pioneer’s OEM steering wheel. Some don’t like the look of it, some don’t like the feel of it, and some find it leads to alignment issues that get worse over time. That’s why these people come to us for industry-leading solutions to their Honda Pioneer steering issues.
Looking for an easy way to upgrade the look of your Honda Pioneer’s interior? Getting an aftermarket steering wheel to replace your plain-looking OEM one is a simple and affordable way to do just that. The Honda Pioneer Force Steering Wheel by Pro Armor features an eye-catching red stitch and is one of our most popular choices. It’s not just about looks either. Our Honda Pioneer aftermarket steering wheels are a lot more comfortable than stock and fit in your hands much nicer. Make replacing your OEM steering wheel even easier by ordering the Honda Pioneer U-Joint Clip Installer by Motion Pro.
Aside from power steering, there are several other steering accessories you can add to your Honda Pioneer to improve its steering ability. Aftermarket steering wheels are an option, but things like beefed-up steering racks and replacement steering columns are also important. Regarding the former, there are many non-OEM steering wheels that are compatible with the Honda Pioneer. However, if they don’t fit the steering wheel hub of the Honda Pioneer, you’ll need to either adjust the steering shaft or get a steering wheel adapter. DragonFire Racing makes a quick-detach steering wheel kit that works great in the Honda Pioneer. You’ll have to cut it down a little, but many riders prefer the feel of the DragonFire wheel over stock steering wheels. Aftermarket steering wheels can also come with built in horns and button clusters to keep your horn or PTT button within easy reach. One thing you should be cognizant of, however, is that some aftermarket Honda Pioneer steering wheels might change the placement of the wheel in relation to the paddles — making them either too close or too far away for some riders’ liking.
If your Honda Pioneer doesn’t turn like it used to, it’s probably due to steering wheel alignment issues. In addition to aftermarket steering wheels, correcting uncentered and unaligned Honda Pioneer steering wheels is another thing that will improve your Honda Pioneer’s steering. You can try to just pull the steering wheel off and install it straight again by removing the center plastic cap and loosening the nut underneath it. A lot of the dealer prep guys are in such a hurry that they just put them on without paying attention to detail, so this quick fix can often solve steering alignment issues. If you’ve had your Pioneer for a while and steering alignment issues just popped up out of nowhere, you can start by readjusting the steering wheel, but the problem might stem from the tie rods being bent or out of whack. By centering the steering wheel alone, you may find that you turn sharper to one direction than the other. Ergo, just like in a car, if the alignment of your Honda Pioneer steering is off, you should start by finding the center of your steering rack by turning your wheel all the way left, then all the way to the right, all the while counting the number of times the steering wheel rotates. Divide this number by two to find the center of your steering shaft, then hold the wheel in place and adjust the tie rod ends to align your front wheels straight. You can use a string off the back wheels to square it up and make sure everything is nice and plum. Pedantic riders and those with UTV OCD would never tolerate a misaligned steering wheel, and neither should you.
Life is too short to deal with a rigid, plain-looking steering wheel that leads to alignment issues in your Honda Pioneer. Regardless of what steering-related parts and accessories you need to set your Honda Pioneer steering system straight, at Everything Honda Offroad, you’ll find no shortage of industry-leading steering wheel parts, replacements, and accessories.
