the main thing is that when you are turning are you getting good response?

thanks

The importance of maintaining your hydraulic steering is highlighted (sadly) in this report report

Just wanted to share, if someone is shopping for a Baystar. I ordered mine from here:

Steering Controls, Engine items in baystar store on eBay!

Price delivered was 565 USD, that was the cheapest i found. On top of that is EU VAT and duty, but still cheaper than locally(here). Everything went smooth, no complains. Still in the box but hoping for a smooth installation later in the spring.
