Center steering wheel
 
Just took my brand new EZ GO RXV 48 Volt for its maiden drive. Love it, but one small issue. When driving straight on any road surface, I.e. slopped or flat, when going straight there is no pull, but the steering wheel top center points at 11 o’clock.
Being a real pain to go back to dealer, can I remove the steering wheel and rotate it straight and reinstall or is that not the procedure? How many splines to move it from 11 O’clock to 12 O’clock?

Yes, you can. DRive it in a straight line so you are certain the cart is straight (With the wheel tilted). Pull the wheel off and put it on straight. loosely tighten the nut, you may have to repeat and make small adjustments. once the wheel is centered tighten the nut back down.

Just keep an eye for tire wear. if the tires start to wear unevenly, you'll want to take it into the dealer and have it fixed correctly.

^^^ what he said......but just wanted to add, in the event you didn't know, the shaft is SPLINED, and the steering wheel is as well, so its easy to make small changes from left to right or the other way around.

Did you pop yourself in the nose when the wheel popped off? I have seen 2 people do that, they always seem to get real mad about their mistake of not leaving the nut loosely installed when pulling on the wheel.

Think that I'll put this on my list of things to do. Center the steering wheel, not pop myself in the nose. HaHa

Great it's all done. The only thing I would like to add is make sure your tires are properly inflated and you are on a level surface when you do this.

Sounds like yours are but others reading this might need to know this.
