A good amount! It is an investment, there's no doubt. But it makes a big difference in your enjoyment / relaxation on the water, particularly if water sports are involved. That said, we've had several people just buy it for the engine sync or for cruising.How many jumped at the deal? I so want/need this, but spent so much on other things this last year or so... UGH!
It really isn’t hard. For me, the hardest part was actually disconnecting those wide factory APS connectors. If you can do that, everything else is a breeze, lol. There’s just not a whole lot of space to stick your finger or a tool in between the connector and the bulkhead wall - to press on the tub and pull the connector out - at the same time. Or something like that (I know, it’s embarassing to admit!)I missed the deal but may buy anyway. How hard is it to install for a new boater?
Thanks for the reply, I looked at the video it looks pretty straightforward. Are you guys anticipating another upcoming sale?Welcome to boating, @cbpagent72 !
To get an idea of what's involved in installing Ridesteady, you can watch our Yamaha install video here:
You can also read through the install part (first half or so) of the manual here: Install Guides & How-To Videos | HYDROPHASE LLC
You can reference other customer's installs here (though the manual should always take precedence): Customer Installs | HYDROPHASE LLC
Generally speaking, if you're somewhat handy, you shouldn't have a problem installing Ridesteady. It's really just about following the instructions and getting in touch with us if you have any questions.
Yes, I'm afraid the $50 discount is over, however, the $100 back for install pics / info is still ongoing. If you want to email your boat year/ model to firstname.lastname@example.org we can go over what you would need specifically for your setup!So i missed the sale discount? How much is the MSRP of this system? And we still can get the $100 back for install pics? Please LMK
Rueben - I would agree. However, as with any and all mods, I would ride the boat "as is" at first for at least some time to get a sense for your "baseline".This is a must, just watched the vids and i need this. so much easier to maintain wake surf speeds...
Here's the list from the website. It looks like the 212x may be from 2012-current model years. Although other 21' models go back top 2006. The definitive way to tell would be to pop open the engine compartment and look to see if your throttle cable terminates at a APS, as shown in the image below. If its compatible it has one.From my understanding this is not available on a 2008 212x correct?
