What Searider Steering?

I have to upgrade my steering as I have swapped a 60hp for a 90hp on the SR5.4. There is currently an ultraflex machanical system on it but it torque steers like mad with the new engine.

I have to stay with a mechanical setup due to costs. I was looking at the Ultraflex T73 which would allow me use the current mounting holes in the console and is a no feed back job

What do you guys use? Ultraflex or Seastar? Hydraulic or mechanical?


If in doubt flat out

Seastar Hydraulic with a tiltable helm on my SR5.4
Although a decent mechanical NFB helm and a correctly routed cable is fine if it is looked after.
