Ultrex Help! - 05/02/21 07:37 PM

Anyone have an Ultrex and ever had a problem turning left with it? I was on the water today and when trying to push down with the heel, the pedal would not budge. It has power and turns right. What could be causing this? Any help is much appreciated!

Steering sensor, should be covered under warranty.

I have had both of these issues. The sensor board will fail for no reason. The cable break issue is usually accompanied by a gritty noise.

Both are easy to fix.

They have a new and improved steering sensor. Easy enough to replace.. My biggest problem are the rear pivot plastic bushings keep breaking apart.

Needs steering sensor control board. If new enough its covered under warranty. Original board gets wet and dies, new board is sealed.
