What Throttle Cable Do I Need? Replace Shift Cable Too?


Recommended Posts

So we got stuck out the other night with forward idle only, throttle would move at the helm but not on the intake so I disconnected it at the intake and had a buddy run the throttle while I navigated the boat back. I just pulled it all apart and it does look like the cable gave out at the throttle control.

What part number do I need to replace this? I looked on Skidim but theyre only specific on length, not boats. I have a 2000 23LSV with a red throttle cable and a blue shift cable. Also, should I go ahead and replace the shift cable too?

Looks like a 20' throttle, 20' shift and 19' steering...?

Not sure if the Escape 23LSV, Wakesetter 23LSV and Sunscape 23LSV have any difference or not. Mine is an Escape, which I never saw on the chart provided by Bakes... just the Sunscape and Wakesetter.

Just replaced mine there are measurements on the cables look closely. May have to pull off your control to see. Very easy

Make sure you check to see if your brass ends are ok. They are not included.
