As Lugnut said ... I did get mine from ebay for a 71-72 Pinto about $100. On my 17 Reeper Sport I didn't need to mill the adjustable sleeve. Install rack and heim joints and measure... I have a set of milled adjustment sleeves if needed!
I used a EPS unit from Super Atv ,Kawasaki Mule Power Steering SKU:PS-4-49 on my 2017 Reeper Sport which has a factory 2" body lift. search my posts, should have a few pics of bracket used, which was welded to frame rail and gas tank support frame. It works excellent even with track kit!
Yes, been thru Bingham many times, work on A/C on logging equipment during summer months. Never stopped at RT 201 Powersports, usually on autopilot heading to jobsite. Was in Pleasant Ridge w/ Reeper last weekend along with Concord. Snowmobile trail is 500' from my home, Atv trail runs Long Falls Dam Rd. by Happy Horseshoe campground from Kingfield to the Back road in Lexington then to Spruce Pond Rd. over mountain to Pine Grove Lodge in Pleasant Ridge. I haven't gone further on Atv trail, I usually loop back thru Rowe Pond Rd. or Carrying Place Rd. back thru Dead River Twp. to home. Approx. 80 miles.
Hubba, I dual registered as LSV and atv/utv so I could travel on D.O.T. roads at slow speed and then pick-up a atv/utv trail. I haven't had any issues with the 64" wide in my area. I know CMP, American Forestry and one other land owner only allowed 60" width for the states atv/utv trails. We (Reepers) body is 58" wide, other makes and models are a lot wider without even counting width of tires. What part of the State is your camp located?
There is a 15A fuse for power to control relay for fan and fuel pump. 20A fuse to feed fuel pump relay to blue/red when on. Could be chaffed wires on fuse panel side through body panels (passenger side). I found on mine there was no grommet to isolate wires from sheet metal chase. I removed passenger seat and seat belt return assembly to see where wires ran to rear of Reeper through sheet metal panels. The wiper and flasher relays have separate control power supplies... I'm thinking chaffed wires shorting, powering relays to close and turn wipers and flashers on besides arching on body panel. I hope you find the issues.
Thanks, been having a blast. The EPS has made turning at slow speed easy with the tracks. It will sink about a foot deep in three feet of powder. Travels along with no issues, used front and rear lockers once to crawl thru a deep water bar (small one in pic 60' +/- in front of Reeper, boulder in pic is size of Reeper body). When I dropped into water bar front of tracks tip toed across bottom of ditch while my pup kissed the windshield and was laying on passenger side windshield and dash till I almost finished crawling up the other side, then the rear dropped into the water bar and she landed with four legs up in the air with back on rear of seat till we crested the other side while dragging the belly pan. After leveling out for a few feet she wanted out! Amazing that after 10 minutes of playing with her Kong toy she trusted me to get back in and have to go back thru that water bar to get home. The Reeper with tracks is 7'6" wide to outside of tracks and approximately 11'+ long track to track. If you had a plank and put it across the top of the water bar, it would not touch the rear track and the base was about 3' across. I was going real slow but gravity was not Valentine's friend! I've got to stop and take the time for pics.
joeg, sorry been out riding....and away from square box. I changed position of terminals on key switch. I removed steering column cover( two Phillips screws and gently separated both halves... plastic clips). Then used voltmeter to check switch for power in 1st position (accessory only... no fuel pump, ect.), 2nd position( fuel pump, ignition, ect.) and start. It's been awhile, but I believe Red is power in, Red/ White is accessory, Red/ Yellow is ignition and fuel pump, yellow is starter. I believe I had to move both r/w and r/y terminals, switch had one open terminal which should have had r/y (run position)and relocated r/w to position where r/y wire was. Best to confirm with switch on 1st position and testing open terminal and r/y, ( should have power on open terminal only). 2nd position testing open terminal and r/y ( should have power on open terminal and r/y). Note r/w terminal only had power on position 2 before correcting.( removed from terminal on switch and relocated to r/y position on switch). This fixed ignition switch but mp3 still didn't work because they had it tied to r/y side of ignition in fuse panel! To correct I pulled fuse panel and removed back cover, located fuse for mp3 and changed wire connection from r/y wire from ignition switch to r/w from ignition switch to power mp3. I have changed fuse panel connections since used open fuse areas and added terminals for new marine bluetooth stereo, heater fan power, extra cigarette lighter power outlets (charge cell phone, GPS, CB radio, ect.) relay power for electric power steering. I hope this helps. I'll keep checking back if you have ?'s.
I don't like the gull wing doors for the simple reason when opening the rain, snow is going to go right in the center console and side of seat. Maybe a double hinge to flip upper Lexan door panel onto aluminum roof panel? I'll be fabricating a removable aluminum roof panel to cover from windshield to back of roll bar, adding removable Lexan sides and rear Lexan tailgate for pup to ride on carpeted engine cover area in cool wx. Then figure a way to flip the Lexan upper door panel up onto roof. It might not be pretty but, It will be dry and warm!
I'm running 31x 10.50-15 Milestar Pantagonia (approx. 50# each) on 2017 Reeper Sport 1100, have 1" wheel spacers w/ stock rims. Still can start in 2nd gear w/ out slipping clutch. I have opened exhaust ends and changed intake to 2" I.D pipe with K&N cone filter. Fuel mileage went from 32 MPG to 28 mpg with tire change.

Well finally put some miles on with track kit... MPG at 14 with tracks. Geared way down because of drive gear size (which is the largest they offer @18 tooth). On hard terrain its like riding in a dozer with rubber tracks... a little give but constant rumble. Hit 3" or more of powder snow and it rides smooth. Have been in 18" of powder snow and floats like a boat. 4th gear in soft snow average speed 20 to 25mph. Hard trails 5th gear 30 to 35 top speed @ 4500 rpm. Will do 45 mph close to redline. Did get stuck once (delayed)... drove over 12" log 4" off ground and slid length of belly pan until rear tracks. Angle of attack was way too much, track system will not rotate enough to climb over. Had to build ramp for rear tracks to climb over. It is hard turning in tight areas without power steering, if in open area and moving along slow turns fine. Installed Super ATV EZ-Steer (Kawasaki Mule kit # PS-4-49) today. Will update with a few pics of install location and give results after running a few miles. Did a quick test run and so much easier.

junked steering rack, have inner and outer tie rod ends, rubber boots for inner tie rod ends too. also have telescopic steering shaft with u-joints and splined for stock manual steering rack. Make offer on what I have listed above, worst I can say is No.
I have stock mp3 w/bass and dash speakers along with inner tie rod boot for right and left side pulled from 2017 reeper sport. check listing in member stuff for sale. make me an offer, junked steering rack but have inner and outer tie rod ends, boots, telescopic steering shaft with u-joints. editing my post shortly.
Finally had a chance to finalize the modification and install of the Honda Pioneer Camso track kit. The 12 x 1.25mm x 180mm bolts arrived and found some 1" U-bolts to secure rear anti-rotation brackets. Installed outer lower swing arm 180mm bolt and trimmed 10 mm off and shaved lower caliper bottom mount to clear longer bolt and bracket. Drilled and installed U-bolt to secure rear of anti-rotation bracket. Re-adjusted torsion springs to correct track attack angles per Camso instructions. Installed full length Auto-Fab sleeves on Pinto steering upgrade at same time as finalizing alignment and toe adjustment.
8" snow to test drive... It is definitely geared down even with largest 18 tooth sprocket! I would say more than the 35% Camso states in brochure.
I'll get some miles on and post the results.

Lugnut, The Pinto steering upgrade install was easy with all your info. Only changes needed for 2017 Reeper Sport was; don't mill the Autofab sleeves or cut inner tie rod arms because the a-arms are longer than older Reepers by 1.5", I did mount the heim joints under the housing with 1/4" spacer to compensate for angle in heim joint. I also have BOR shocks installed on this machine. I have no bump steer now. Thanks for posting great info.
