It will steer VERY hard with it. Its only good for mud riding, any amount of trail riding and you won't want it. Get a DGL (Detroit Gearless Locker) its over $300, but its a lot more trail friendly.
Why is a spool locker horrible???? Just trying to get info on this.A spool locker is horrible. Now on the other hand the DGL is one of the best mods you can put on a Honda. I wouldn't think of trying to climb without one.
Codman, Spool locker is a full time locker you should stay away from the full time locker unless your planning to just mud bog. It's going to make regular trail riding a pain. I also have a King Quad and it will hardly turn with the front fullly locked, kind of like driving to fast in the snow front end starts pushing or plowing with the wheels turned.
Here's a links to help you out.

With a Detroit Gearless Lockerä, two drive wheels are normally locked together; however, the outer wheel may release and rotate faster than the inner wheel in a turn. The inner wheel remains locked, driving with full power at all times. Releasing an outer wheel in a turn promotes easier steering, reducing drivetrain stress and tire tread wear. If a wheel loses traction, it never spins faster than the wheel with traction, as with a conventional differential. "There can be no one-wheel spinout."
