Foot Throttle

Does anyone know of a supplier of Foot Throttles made by Incontrolequipment or recommend an alternative that can be linked to the throttle lever ?

Tony Davis supplies the In Control system, but be warned, they ain't cheap!

it's about 300 quid for a single and 600 for a split pedal twin motor.

They are the bollox tho'!

I run with the incontrol foot unit and it is flawless in my eyes and a great piece of design.

I would suggest to anybody to maybe make the most of the US dollar at the moment and ring somebody or email a company in America, pay with credit card and get them sent over.

Takes about 2 weeks and last time I did it I had to pay a small amount of cash on delivery for tax.

Whist you are at it it might be worth getting another spare cable as well just in case.

http://www.cpperformance.com/detail.aspx?ID=3440 is just one company in the states.

http://www.incontrolequipment.com/access.asp......this shows the cable to link the foot throttle Im assuming to the hand throttle.

Would be worth giving incontrol an email.

Before purchasing though I would suggest doing a search on google to compare prices.

good luck

Yup ,,,, had one about 4 years now and still as good as new. Worth every penny

Does anybody know if this unit can be used on a Yami that uses the PUSH to open throttle principle ,,,,,
TONY ?????

No!






Unless someone knows better? They use a thinner inner cable which won't push!

There may be a conversion unit around for the Incontrol unit - but I can't find it on their website - have you tried emailing them direct?

It might be a bit over the top though - it would be a simple lever changing the pull to a push.

Cookie, the cable that "Incontrol" use won't push, its the type of cable that is used on cycle brakes.

I have looked at the possibility of adapting the throttle to accept the standard solid cable, this I reckon is the only way it can be done.
Probably easyer to go down the Land & Sea (and the like) road!

If you have the Incontrol unit pull a simple lever with a return spring on it, and a regular control cable on the other end being pushed that would sort it out, the only problem being how beefy the spring wou;d have to be to push the cable - if you had it at the back of the boat and kept the regular cable short it would help a little - as I said a lot of work to make it work right!

Cookie mate,

Far simpler would be to have the rod (attached to the pedal) push a solid "inner" through an "outer" that is clamped at a suitable angle to the rear of the foot plate assembly. Bingo!

What do you reckon ????

I take it then that the std 33c cable is the "stock" (screamandfly ,,, Tony) item as fitted to Merc controls. Does this apply to the Yami push system?

I converted mine to take a 23C (same as 33C but lighter) cable, which meant re-making a few parts, like the link arm tween pedal and roller track, and the outer cable anchor point. Then that single 23C runs into a splitter (also custom made) to give me the two 23C's for the twin engines. I didn't want the 'split' twin motor pedal.

The twin cables entering the throttle lever on the injector pump are one from the foot throttle, and one from the hand throttle.

Which ever one you use, pulls the throttle and leaves the one behind that you're not using.

like this:


1) modded In-Control pedal

2) Splitter unit, with single 23C going in and two 23C's exiting to motors.

3) Throttle connection to motors (1 hand, 1 foot)

Those prices would have been for a single or twin, with a sliding adjustment plate and a hand throttle link.

I'm just about to order some more, and I'm expecting a single foot throttle will be around 200 INCLUSIVE OF SHIPPING, DUTY AND VAT!
