i have a Yamaha 50 hp 2001 on a thundercat

the steering is very stiff so i what to get a new damper any ideas on what's the best etc. i do not have loads of cash so a mid range one would be good.

I'm running the iridium plugs in a Yam 85. There's noticeably less low speed oiling. No extra power though.
Need spares,consoles,consumables,hire,training or even a new boat?
