Want to install Baystar hydraulic steering on an 06 Nitro 482 with a 125 Optimax.
Don't want to do it myself. Who would you trust to do it? I have the kit already....

I did the exact same kit on an older Nitro. It is easy. You can do it. The only step that requires two people is bleeding the system. That’s where my wife helped. Took about an hour and 15 minutes to remove the old stuff and install the kit.

Use a cutoff wheel on the old steering cable. Makes the demo about a 10 minute job.

Seriously. Save the money.

I put that kit on my boat also. I used a sawzaw to cut the old steering cables to make it a quick removal. Really a pretty easy job! My 10 year old daughter help me bleed the air out. I’ll never have a boat again without hydraulic steering!
