    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..
