    Steering cables, XPLs

    Does anyone know for sure if you can stick a 99 xpl steering cable in a 01 xpl?

    I have both here, but the 01 is thicker and a little different on each end.

    It looks like everything lines up.

    Has anyone done it?

    They were revised back in 97 because of brakage.. Are you sure that is the stock cable in the 99? and not a 97 cable?

    Yes, I have a 97 on the rack....that was the O plan, but it didn't seem to line up at all.

    So I got a 99 cable (XPL) and it is thinner than the 2001.

    I' ve been told they both (97 and 99) break and that is why the 01 and newer are thicker.

    I have a 01 xpl boat ...........building in the ground up on a 40 hour spotless hull....

    97 is shorter, but it will actually work. the connection from the cable to the rods on the ends of the '01+ cables is stronger than the '99. only found out cuz i broke one and had the hood ripped off another.
