Aftermarket Steering Wheel for Indica Xeta
starting this thread on behalf of a friend - Black Indica.
In spite of having power steering, he finds the steering very heavy. Will changing to an aftermarket steering wheel (Smaller diameter) have any effect on this?
Could you also suggest where he can buy and get it fitted, and brands.. Checked out Momo, but it is out of budget (costs 2.5k+)

I think decent quality steering wheels will always cost around 2.5 k +.
Is it not that reduced diameter of the steering will need additional force to operate than the one with larger diameter?

I wonder if his power steering seals have leaked off all the fluid. Happened to me once - no fluid = heavy steering. the lines are very vulnerable and can scrape off over speed breakers. ask him to get it checked.
Having said that , the indica xeta does have the lightest steering of all the indicas - especially when compared to my turbo which is at the other end, having a heavier engine and bigger wheels. of course , its nowhere near as light as even the non PS altos
I doubt if a smaller dia steering wheel will help things. But if you really want one , you can use the one from the indigo CS. its a smaller dia wheel, and fitting it onto the xeta should be relatively straightforward
