    Other than some very early models I believe that all twin engined Yamahas use cables of the same length for both sides. The routing through the center of the boat makes the cable length the same.

    Seastar doses make the rack steering. If you call they can help you find the part numbers.

    Hey There @Bruce @bronze_10 I just ordered steering/control cables for my 2009 212x.

    I ordered the steering thru Ebay for a Seastar SSC21916 (16ft) cable for $$127.98 ($255.96) . Best I can tell 16ft is the factory length and echo'd by @smthng here.

    I ordered the control/bucket cable thru boatstoreusa.com Teleflex part number CCX63317 (17ft). $36.38 ($72.76+$10 ship)
    The factory length on this cable is not clear to me, I chose 17 based on the 230's being 18, and conversation with @bronze_10 .

    Hope to install them next weekend. Will edit if required
    THANK YOU

    Say Hey All, @Bruce the above part numbers are solid for the 212x (21 footers). shout-out to @bronze_10 for giving me a solid days labor in the heat to replace these 4 cables, and the knowledge to help someone else. My boat is a 2009 and has about 200 hours on it. Its garage a great deal and soaks on the weekends. overall the old cables looked fine, I haven't hacksaw'd thru them yet but I don't expect anything to come of it. The new ones do feel better and I'm expecting/hoping that the throttle creep will be gone as a result of tighter bucket cables....
    enjoy the ride..

    @Bruce ,

    I notice the AR190's in your chart/XLS only have a part # for the reverse cable. However, you posted a picture above of the Jetboat steering cable SSC219XX (XX is the length). Do you know if this cable will replace the OE cable (mine is a F3A-U1470-01-00) (2015 AR192) ?

    Doug,

    SBT lists your cable length as 170.125 inches.

    That is 14 feet 2.125 inches.

    I would hate for your cable to be 2.125" too short so SSC21915 would likely be the best choice. There is no issue with it being too long. I see prices starting around $114 for that part.

    PartsPak has the Yamaha Cable for $131.

    If you order the Seastar cable please confirm it works. I am almost certain that it will.

    @Bruce,

    Thanks, but SBT had their "in-house" cable direct replacement for the Yamaha OE. So, I am driving the 4.5 hours (round-trip) and picking up their bale for $169 (minus 10% military discount). I will then, take pictures and measurements of the ends and send those pictures to a parts specialists @ MarinePartsSource and have them compare the ends in my pictures with the SSC21915 they have in stock. I will post the results back here for the group.

    Thanks sir.

    Wow, that will be interesting. Hope their cables last longer than their engines

    Salt water boaters lube your cables disconnect slip a hose on with a clamp add some light weight oil shift it turn the steering wheel a bunch of times leave it sit for the winter with the hoses on and some oil . I went 13 years on my previous 2005 AR230.
