Pics of steering bracket & drag link

This defo would not have been helping so need to source one if anybody has contacts.

Was told the drag link was wrong shape or length????? shown is the 11 inches needed for drag link (drag link in picture, holes centre to centre is 11inches so guessing its fine, query on shape perhaps????? , also 9inches travel shown what is required.

Your link bar is the correct Yamaha part. Press that steering arm straight and use the inside hole. You will gain the steering angle you require. You will need cut you steering arm at the step. I guess you helm unit is worn and thats where your losing the travel. HTH

I had quite an amusing first spin in my boat when I put the steering cable in the wrong side of the helm - thus reversing the turning directions!
