What is “Ridesteady for Yamaha”?

Ridesteady is a speed control system (“cruise control”) that uses GPS satellites or engine RPM to keep your boat at the set speed you choose. On twin engine boats, it will also automatically synchronize your engines. There are many other features as well that can be viewed at www.hydrophase.com/yamaha

Why would I want this?

Yamaha jet boats, despite their many advantages, are difficult to keep at a precise speed. Ridesteady handles this for you automatically. It is particularly nice with water sports, but also beneficial for cruising. It allows the driver to focus on steering the boat safely, rather than fixating on the speedometer. Life is much more relaxing for both the driver and rider.

How difficult is it to install?

Ridesteady for Yamaha works directly with the throttle signal electronically, so no motors are needed to install. Light wiring work is required at the helm (tapping into the ignition switch wiring), as well as some “plug and play” operations on the engine side. A video of an install and the full installation manual can be viewed here: Install Guides & How-To Videos | HYDROPHASE LLC

How easy is it to use?

Ease-of-use was considered from the beginning of the design process. While there are many features, it is designed to work out of the box. The rotary knob makes changing set speed and settings quick and easy.

What Yamaha boats is Ridesteady compatible with?

2006-current AR210, SX210, SR210

2010-current AR240, SX240, 242 Limited

2012-current AR190, SX190, 212SS, 212X

2013-current AR192, SX192

I'm in as well. I already have a good portion of the trim pieces out of the interior for audio and lighting upgrades, might as well knock this out while it's all already out. Looking forward to this season for sure.

You've got quite the project list going, @white2kstang . Thanks for your business!
Yes, just dont tell the significant other. Lol. Already have new Cobra steering installed as well that I'm waiting to try out too. Thanks again for answering my questions and for shipping it out so quick.

Got my box today too! We shall see if I can start the install this weekend. Work has been insane this week and I may have to do some of that instead.

Same here, ordered last night. Now just have to wait for things to warm up to get the boat out of storage to start the install!
