Cable Conversion on Mokai ES-Kape
« on: September 22, 2018, 05:43:47 PM »
I just installed the Cable conversion kit in my 2017 ES-Kape.  The servo controls that came with it started acting wiggy within the couple of weeks of use.  Reason:  The joystick cover (thin black rubber) split from a light bump... and allowed water into the joystick electronics, causing shorting... causing erratic small movements and a tendency to "pull" to the left slightly.  The throttle also starting acting erratically.  After the cable conversion, and removal of the governor tension spring... the boat operates like a dream.  Thanks Tom!   :)

Glad to hear it Dave. Thanks for the feedback!

What spring did you remove?

I been wondering if anyone had that rubber boot split on them yet.  I've stared at water pooled down in there countless times thinking how long it would last before it split open. Ha.  Typically I'll blow the water out, but it's not possible when I'm out in the rain or when I keep getting in and out of the boat and water splashes up.  That boot needs to be angled to deflect water off, instead of recessed to pool water down.

It's split for many people. That's only one problem though, heat kills the steering servo and causes the same problems.

Hi Tom

Do you have a video showing how easy it is to separate the 3 hulls with your steering cable kit.
I watched the video where you install the cable kit in escape and it looks like the cable is continuous from steering control to rear.

Thanks

Does the quick disconnect start around the 21:30 mark?

No, it starts at the 22:44 mark, that's the side you take apart from. But first you take the throttle cable loose from the engine and pull it through to the cockpit, then you pull the steering cable into the engine compartment. Hull can be separated then.
