Cable Trunking / Witches Hat

Hi guys,

Just thinking about the cable routing options on the SR4. Would it be possible to fit trunking for all the cables and wires to run in and how would it fit to the engine(Yam 50). I think it looks good but not sure if feasible?

If i go with routing cables out of the back of console (no trunking), does the witches hat point outwards or inwards or doesn't make any difference?.....hope it isn't a bone question!!!

Cheers.

Yami do a LOVELY grommet and rigging hose for rigging and I use them all the time when fitting up engines . you can get the grommets in chrome or plastic and fit nicely into consoles etc . the rigging hose slips neatly over it with a stainless steel clamp . i think these are the part number off the top of my head

Chrome grommet - ABA THRUT-RA-SM
Plastic grommet - mar - THRUT - RS - M2

WILL check these though

cheers baz

The hose and flange in the pic is a Yam part too. Also sold by IBS, at a much cheaper price - see page 13 in their online pdf catalogue: 14.99/m for the duct and 7.99 for the flange & end cap.

OBT / DHD

Am i correct in assuming i can route control and steering cables, fuel line and electrical cable all through the one duct/trunk and branch it off?

Can i connect it to a two stroke Yam 50, seen the ducting connect Yam 4 strokes but not 2 strokes?

I think i will go for this option if feasible.

Cheers guys.

Steering cable should be separate, 'cos it will go through the tilt tube, whereas all the other stuff goes straight into the outboard. You may be able to run the cable part of the way through the duct then branch it out through a hole. You can get a 'y-branch' adaptor to enable a fuel primer bulb to be used alongside the duct, but the outlet spiggot for that would be too small for the nut on the steering cable.
I don't know if Yam do an adaptor on the engine end for this to connect to a 50hp 2-stroke, but I'm sure you could fabricate something to suit.
