Author Topic:   Teleflex NFB 4.2 Steering

I have recently installed Teleflex 4.2 NFB steering on my 24' Outrage with 250 Yamaha. It seems to steer heavy, one direction more then the other. It is heavier at speed then at idle. I have had good luck with this system in the past installing the same on my 24' Aquasport 250 hp although the cable length was 5' shorter on the Aquasport. Any ideas why the difference?

It sounds like the trim tab on your engine needs to be adjusted. Adjust the tab a little towards the hard steering direction.. Once adjusted properly, the steering should be just as easy to turn in either direction..

Joe is correct. Most likely your trim tab is not adjusted correctly. While the NFB system prevents steering torque from turning your steering wheel, it can still exert its influence by offering more resistance while turning one direction than the other.

To adjust the trim tab, do as Joe describes. You want the steering to be neutral at whatever engine trim angle you most commonly cruise at.

My recommendation would be to raise the motor to it's correct height first (as described in this thread: ), and then rotate the trim tab to it's optimal position.
