custom steering wheel for Viking?

I look all over the web, and see plenty of choices for Yamaha golf cart and Rhino.. but nothing that specifically says "fits Viking".

The only one I've found so far are two Dragonfire racing wheels, but I don't really need the "quick detach" feature.. and they're a bit on the spendy side at 275.00

Badass also makes a cool lookin wheel, but don't list an adapter for the Viking. Just the Polaris.

Any other ideas?

Dragonfire quick detach wheel/OE console
Dragonfire fire extinguisher mount
2R billet exhaust tip/OE short windshield
OE Chainsaw mount/Axia pano mirror

Who was it on here that did a mod to the steering column so that aftermarket wheels would fit?

My kit was from Dragonfire and it said it would fit the Viking, but the adapter it comes with is for a Rhino and the spline on the Viking is bigger

so if we can find an aftermarket wheel for a rhino 2010 and up it should fit the Viking / wolverine. The p/n's on the steering wheel are the same the billet adapter rob got was for a 2004 to 2009 rhino which had a smaller shaft. He drilled it bigger and mig welded it on.
