I cant turn a left circle with my dads EXT 580 it turns right fine. But I cant figure out whats up turning left. I need any help I can get FAST.

Its alignment is fine and the handle bars are straight.

My brother once found an old socket or maybe a spark plug laying in his bellypan. It did the same thing. Kevin

Do the skis accually go left and right to the full capabilities or is it that the steering jams when trying to turn left.  If its jaming you have to find out where.  I have no idea so try what snowrat said.

Thank you for all your advise guys. I found my problem. I must have took a bump too hard and dented the underside of the sled up. And thats what the steering post was hitting. What ever I hit must have been hard cause it took a big gouge out of the skid plate.

sockets in the belly pan can be killer.  Had a 96 with a 9/16 lost under the motor.  Once and a while no right hand steering only left.  Fine for circle track bad for the trails.
