Hi guys I'm running Suzuki 250 when under way my steering is light to turn to the left but hard to turn to the right is this due to prop pulling this way cheers

It could be your teleflex as a cable the braid twists one way if their is a fray it could affect the steering one way

If it is teleflex on a 250hp then that is not helping.

Ha ha yup but I doubt it is... As said check your trim tab.
Does is start to turn to the left if u take your hands of steering wheel?
Make sure tubes are all greased on the outboard.
Also check the hyd hoses are not crushed somewhere.

Cool will check cables and hoes it seems to be more at hight speeds ok at low speeds may be the rotasion of prop making it easier on one side or just don't turn right cheers for inf

If its teleflex then you can always fit a power assist pump. most of the big engines have them as standard now and if not then are fitted with a pump.
