Cable lengths?

Recommended Posts

I need to put a new steering cable into my parent's 1999 Response LX. Since I'm going to run that I figured that I would also replace the throttle cables as well. The boat is in storage up at their house and I was wondering if anyone knew the part numbers and lengths for these cables?

I'm pretty sure that I put a 19 and a 17 foot cable in my Sportster when I redid the throttle cables last summer, would the Response be the same?

Thanks for any help,

I was hoping that someone knew so that I could call them with the part numbers and lengths.

I went through this once and they only use a few different cable designs, but the main thing to know is that the length is only the actual dimensions of the insulation (the plastic portion) not the total length of the cable including the end connections. That's what I learned when I ordered the wrong one on my first attempt, the sales guy did not explain it right over the phone.

The boat is in storage up by my parents house and I need to replace the steering cable. I thought that as long as I was doing that, I would replace the cables in the throttle as well. I would like to order all of the parts before I bring the boat back to my house so I can pull one out and bring the next one through. I was hoping that someone had ordered cables before and/or knew the lengths to help me out.
