    05' seadoo gtx steering cable sticking

    just got my gtx back from dewinterizing. The steering cable sticks. I tried working it back and forth but still sticks. I ride in salt water and it hasn't been riden since last october. any advice on unsticking it without replacing the cable? I lubed the bottom of the cable but don't know how the lube the top? Through the engine compartment or take off the black casing around the bottom of the handle bar? Thanks in advance

    Open the hood and there's a panel which holds the fire extinguisher. Remove this (it pulls off) and you can get to the top of the cable. I use a paintbrush with a long handle to apply marine grease.

    PB blaster is awesome....if you breaking a rusted bolt loose. it's not really a lube though, it's a penetrating oil.

    don't know if it will degrade other lubes you may apply to the cable. so it may loosen the cable, but don't rely on it as a long term lube.
