2 minor, intermittent issues on new Revolution 2018 and wondering anything I can do or check, or if its normal use:

1. Around 30% of time inserting mirage drive, right side click & go lever does not fully engage so either a) try again or b) just give arc cranks a little side to side push, so in either case then the lever clicks in ok. Also I can always remove drive but 100% of time while taking drive out that same lever requires more pressure than normal to flip it back, especially compared to other lever which is flawless.

2. Around 5% of time I notice rudder does not steer fully to one side. In that case I either pull it back up then lower it more which works fine or sometimes i just pull the cord tighter which works most times but not always. Maybe its operator error and if so is there some trick to lower it to always get it perfect. Usually pulling hard works well so maybe I am too lax on some pulls.

P.S. I have old 2010 revolution and somehow recall having same issues at first but after awhile they went aways without me doing anything. Cant recall for sure though.

May be a slight obstruction in the click and go area blocking the crank shaft from fully seating? Slight mold part line grind issue for the drive to fit the well?

Steering is easily adjusted. Two screws on the rudder head. Loosen the screws. Center the steering handle in its left to right steering... should be pointed slightly to the right... not straight ahead. Center the rudder blade... Thension the steering lines and then tighten the screws. There is a complete instruction in the support area under your boat model name.
