Somehow the steering wheel on my 2012 has gotten bent. We talked to the factory and they want $ 650 + shipping from the UK for a replacement. I think that's ridiculous for a stock steering wheel so I'm looking for a cheaper replacement. The racing steering wheels that I've been looking at here in the US don't have the correct bolt pattern. So I'm trying to find an undrilled one.

Has anyone gone this route ?

I have a surplus stock unit. One of four wheels I've accumulated for my machine blush so one can go.

Are you kidding me? 650 USD for the standard steering wheel of our M3W?

I think it's crazy! shocked2

I replaced mine for a Moto-Lita wooden beautiful one and it was much cheaper than that!

Today's lesson is that my original steering wheel, the one collecting dust in my storage room, is a gem! laugh2

Dutch, although I gave up racing many years ago the MTW wheel looks familiar, very much like ones used on Go Karts

Go to MotoLita, they have all sorts of wheels at reasonable prices in comparison.

If it’s bent they should replace it for free, a steering wheel should not deform other than in an accident if it bent during normal use then it’s a crap grade of material they have used and they need a bollocking for it.
