    UMI Steering Install.... NEED HELP & PICS!

    So I have read a few threads on here about the UMI steering install, mainly about the bars hiting, but not my issue. I bought the steering from a member here, which was off an RXX. I believe I have a few pieces missing and would hope somebody on here has pics of how it's installed inside the hull, where the steering cable lines up and is assembled. My steering cable seems way to long for this unit but since so many people have it I figured there was a secret to it.

    Also if anyone who has this set up in MD, VA, or NYC and I could swing by to look at it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    I have heard of people having to pull the steering cable up besides the intake manifold to make it shorter as it were and get it into the UMI. Are you sure the rxx steering will fit.?? R88

    you can come see mine and i can help you but im an hour north of nyc. prob better to post pics first becuase if your kit is missing stuff- that obviously has to be addressed first.

    the only prob I had was with bar clearance...

    I was told it is the exact same kit as all the others. Looks exactly the same.

    Don't have a car here in NYC, plus my ski is in MD. Can you shoot me over some pics of the inside of your hull? This would be a huge help.

    Ok I see what I am missing now. Are all the mounting pieces that hold the thrust support part of the kit? I don't recognize the black bracket bolted to the bottom.

    Where is the steering cable routed? Mine looks way long. Sorry for the crappy pics.

    Yeah I got that part. I was referring to the piece under that, is that a bracket you made to hold your intake?
