Throttle and gear cables

Good evening all,

Hope everyone had a great Xmas.

Iíve got a 704 control unit attached to my yam hpdi and the shift and throttle movements are really stiff. The boat had been under water at the stern so itís possible that thereís some silt and salt in the cable run.

Iím gonna replace the cables but before I do, are they just the standard 33c cables and if so is there any merit in upscaling to the new teleflex extreme or just stick with standard??

Also as the boat is 2002 and the control box is original, would it be easie to buy a new control unit as well or not bother??

Thanks in advance

I used the teleflex extreme cables on an F115 recently and it made one hell of a difference especially for when towing a wakeboarder, no throttle adjustments needed.

I replaced the ones on my Honda 130hp with "Extremes" because of heavy shift and throttle loads and it was the difference between night and day.

Just make sure everything in the control box is clean and properly greased up when you've got it open to replace the cables. Not familiar with hat particular model but it might have a screw for adjusting the "stiffness" just make sure that's not been "rumped" up by someone not realising what it is.

Thanks. Yeh it has a stiffener screw. I’ll take off the top cover and check it, but I’m replacing all of the electrics in the cable run, so I might as well do the cables at the same time.

I’m doing a complete refit, so I was just thinking for the sake of an extra £100 in the grand scheme of things, a new control might also look aesthetically better.

It’s not overally stiff getting into gear but defo stiff moving through the throttle run both ways.

Thanks again for the advice.
