Default SeaStar Kicker Cable Tieb

Hey users:
I am very proud to introduce you to the newest member of the Teleflex Marine family, the SeaStar, Kicker Cable Tiebar.

For years we have all seen some pretty good, and some really bad set ups for steering kicker/trawling motors off of the main steering gear. Finally, we have a, not good, but excellent solution to this problem.

Below is a link to the SeaStar Kicker Cable Tiebar. This set up will allow most every boat that runs a SeaStar Steering Cylinder (HC5345 or HC5358 ONLY) and a kicker be steered with the least amount of resistance. The design of the tie-bar allows for offsets, and, we use our Teleflex Marine cables to complete the link. This product, is by far one of my favorite that we have released. Very user friendly and will be a nice touch to any boat.

Suggest that you update your Christmas wish list now...... "how cool would you be when you opened this on Christmas Day"

As always, if you have any questions just shout them out and we will answer

I'm wondering if this system will work to tie my main to the kicker. The kicker is on a hydraulic lift so moves out when lowering it to the water. Here's a picture of the stern.

Hey there - Tough call when viewing the photo, so. Click on the link below. There is a chart there that will instruct you on where and what to measure.

Thanks and let me know if you have any questions

i guess a steering system could be designed for an IO to tie in hydraulic lines (as an option) to steer a kicker motor...would be an interesting project.....

As much as I wish, there is no way that I know to connect to anything other than an outboard. I will pass these requests along to the right persons though. We have lots of resources and hopefully we can have something like this as well

Thanks
Marc

It should work, but you should confirm the following;
* cylinder is that of an HC5345, HC5358 or HC5348 (doesn't work with any other cylinder)
* kicker is fitted with a standard steering/tilt tube
* you have, or can order a drag link to attach to the end of the cable which will then attach to the kicker engine
* have confirmed via the data sheet that you will have no restrictions when installed

assuming all of the above is met, I don't see any reason why you cannot use this..

thanks and let me know if you have any further questions

Marc

Nice unit, it works well with my boat. The kicker raises and lowers without having to detach the cable. Put it on and forget about it.

Couple of questions as I was looking at a brochure on this. I just put a Yami 9.9 next to my Yami 250 and want to tie them together. what is the "HC5358 and HC6358 require inverted mount
plate, consult factory" note on the sheet mean I need to get as I have the HC5358 cylinder and is there any way to get a 18-19" cable as on the application chart I have a 6" transom offset and a tube to tube distance of about 15+". The 16" is too short and the 22" would make a sharp S turn to get to the kicker and I don't want it to bind.

I have the same setup as kimbrey54, but on the opposite side.
I need to know what parts he ordered.

Inquiring minds would like to know...
