I've not had this 4 wheeler but a month and found out something else about it ha ha. Steering seems perfect when trail riding or on road, but when I get in mudhole with deep water or splashing water up, it's getting somewhere and causing a problem. Within a few minutes of water splashing up the handle bars start jerking to the left while riding (repeatedly). After awhile, it will stop doing it but at first, it's like someone is grabbing the handlebars and tryin to run me off the road. Is the water getting in bearings or is there somewhere else the water can get to cause this problem?

Jack it up off the ground and start checking wheelbearings shock mounts, tierods ball joints everything in the front it sounds like you got alot of slack somewhere and when you start bunding it up the probles start.
