Mercury Pro Kicker & Panther Auxiliary Motor Steering Kit?

Recommended Posts

Tried to attach my 2005 90hp Mercury outboard to my (2013 or 2014) Mercury 9.9 Pro Kicker Tiller using the Panther auxiliary connector rod. (probably shouldn't have tried the cheap way out but didn't want to spend 300 dollars on an EZ Steer after purchasing pro kicker) The only way I saw that I would be able to connect them was with the square shaped tab that was only attached to the kicker with one phillips head screw. This would not hold up and loosen after use. Connecting to this square tab will also rub on other components. Am I missing something or do I need to purchase the EZ Steer? The main reason I chose the Panther rod was price and that it could be removed or installed while in the boat. I have heard mixed reviews about the EZ Steer; dropping it in the water, having to go to shore to reconnect it; falling in the prop. Should I return the Panther to Cabelas and purchase the EZ Steer? I also have the Protroll 2 digital throttle that I will be installing after I figure out my steering connection if that has anything to do with that setup.

Check out the link to the thread below and look at the post I made with pictures of how my Panther bar is hooked up to my kicker. You need to get a bracket for your kicker that the steering bar will then connect too. I see you have the same to bolts on your kicker to attach the bracket you need to get. My kicker came with the bracket I'm talking so I'm not sure where you can buy one but Google is your friend there! Hope this helps  :)

EZ steer works great. Put it on beginning of the season haven't touched it since. Well worth the price for something that WORKS and not having to worry about it.

Put on the ez steer arms some foam tubing to keep it from sinking when it comes apart and you drop it. Saves you over a hundred bucks.
