Opinions on a spool locker for 2012 foreman?

Instead of trading for a whole new machine I was wondering if anyone had any experience with a spool locker?

It makes them steer hard. Other than that they do what they do, lock the front end.

Idk if itís the same but in my foreman 450 I bought a steel washer and turned it in the lathe to the right dimensions . Could be done with a drill bit and a good eye with grinder I bet

2017 Honda Foreman, foot shift, manual steering. No mods yet 😓

When in doubt thorottle out
