Boat Compatibility

The Ridesteady speed control system is generally compatible with recreational boats (runabout, ski, wakeboard) with 4, 6, or 8 cylinder engines with mechanical throttle control, including both fuel injected and carbureted engines, as well as most drive formats (I/Os/stern drives, inboards/direct-drives, V-drives).

It is best if your boat has a pull-type throttle, where when the driver throttle lever is pushed down, the throttle cable “pulls-in” at the engine connection. However, we have also had successful customer installations on push-type throttles, such as OMC engine configurations. Contact us for more information.
