Are you sure it is the throttle cables that you need or the reverse gate cables? You can determine this easily. When you push the throttle levers there are two stages of movement in each direction (forward and reverse). The first stage of the movement moves the gates that cover the jet pump on the outside of the boat - these are what fails usually as they are exposed to water all the time the boat is in the water. The 2nd stage of the throttle movement is to the engines for throttle control - these don't usually get stiff or fail because they are not exposed to water.Hi Julian....hope that you help me. I bought a 2006 Yamaha Jet Boat SX230 and need to change the acceleration cables or throttles cables. What are the best site to buy...what is the exact measures or if the cables has a standard measure.
Tom, I'm glad you are satisfied with your purchase.
Yamaha manufactures some parts, but many others are sourced from manufacturers that specialize in certain products.
I am very much against willingly separating from my money, and I will generally always look for options where the price of an item seems much different than comparable items.
Looking for the original manufacturer on cables and other articles, and buying straight from the original manufacturer does not put you at greater risk of harm.
Many fittings, fasteners and switches can be found as alternatives to the yamaha OE parts for much less. I prefer these when available, and would rather use the savings for other upgrades or more boating time, dinner, etc.
Every choice brings risk, i think the implied risk of danger to safety vs cable source is not one I agree with. I wanted to provide this thought for the benefit of others that may be interested in pursuing after market parts on future purchases.
Best of luck with the install.
