TELEFLEX XTREME Tilt NFB Steering Kit

Boats with higher horsepower engines or hulls with large wetted surfaces can now enjoy the unprecedented levels of smooth, effortless handling that only the innovative XTREME™ cable design, in conjunction with an all-new helm featuring high-efficiency gearing and an improved No FeedBack (NFB) clutch can provide. XTREME™ cables feature splined ridges on the inner liner that reduce internal friction, allow for a tighter fit to minimize lost motion, and extend cable life. Boasting an entirely new drive train, the XTREME™ helm provides an enhanced level of feel and lower effort at the wheel. An improved NFB clutch mechanism with a smoother release minimizes the effects of engine torque and reduces backlash. Compact Zamac housing and new style bezel offers reduced weight, superior strength and, with a smaller footprint than previous Teleflex helms, simplifies upgrading existing systems to this latest design. XTREME™ steering systems are available in standard, fixed helm designs or with the added comfort, convenience and control of a tilt hub helm that provides 48° articulation with five positive lock positions to ensure maximum comfort and control whether seated while cruising or when standing during close maneuvers or docking.

Only Mounts with Cables Horizontal

      Best Uses

        I didn't get a chance to use it so I can't comment on it's function. But, I did a mock install before building my new dashboard and learned that there is a serious design flaw in this system.

        The steering unit can only be mated to the tilt unit with the cable entering the steering unit horizontally. If you cannot accommodate horizontal cable runs into the unit, this will not work for you. It will not allow cables to enter vertically from beneath or at a 45° angle. Nothing but horizontal will work.

        This is silly since if the unit were constructed with mounting bolt holes every 15° around the housing and the tilt unit with bolt holes every 120°, the tilt unit could be installed plumb and the steering unit could mate to the tilt unit in increments of 15° accommodating almost any cable entry angle.

        But no, the holes in the steering unit and tilt unit are a unique configuration that accomodates only horizontal cable entry to the steering unit.
