There are Mastercraft 2010 steering wheels for sale on ebay for 55 bucks compared to Mastercrafts price of over 300. I'm thinking of buying one (they have a bunch available).

http://www.ebay.com/itm/330723772715?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1423.l2649

For those of you with 2010 or 2011 models, do you like the steering wheel? Is it plastic or aluminum?

HOLY CRAP! I just about ordered one from my local dealer......


Does anyone know if the MC needs a spline... I think I remember it being the spline version

Im pretty sure I remember it being spline. Do you guys know if the spokes are aluminum or plastic?

ZachDaddy
04-16-2013, 02:47 PM
I thought it was painted aluminium...

I just got the insert the other day and can't wait to get the wheel now.

Thank you mrm for the heads up.:banana:

For those of you with 2010 or 2011 models, do you like the steering wheel? Is it plastic or aluminum?

The spokes are aluminum, the OEM MC center is solid aluminum. However, the center cap directly from Syntec is plastic (seller on ebay).

To me this steering wheel is iconic. I know I have MC googles and one of the worst cases of MCOCD that's documented, but this steering wheel makes me want to clean something or at the least wax...

The best I can do is give the part number for the center cap...102306.

I called around and shopped prices and the best I could do was $106 plus shipping.

There isn't a surplus deal out there on this part, not to my knowledge.

What are you going to use for a center cap?

JRW160
04-19-2013, 09:28 AM
What are you going to use for a center cap?
I haven't decided yet. The one that comes with it says "Gussi Italia" It's just a metal disc with adhesive on the back. I'd like to get another disc cut with the MC shield or something on it.

Can you confirm it was splined?

JRW160
04-19-2013, 03:49 PM

The old one will not fit. The old one screwed in to the center of the chrome ring that the 6 allen screws attach to. The chrome ring is a little too big to work with the new steering wheel.

JRW160
04-19-2013, 03:52 PM
Can you confirm it was splined?
I can't confirm. I ordered mine with a splined hub, but I didn't even take my old hub off. I tried removing the 3/4 nut in the center to get the old hub off, but it wasn't moving. I was afraid I was going to break something. I just removed the 6 allen screws and attached the new steering wheel to the old hub using the new allen screws that came with it. They are a little bit longer than the old screws.

I installed my new wheel today and love it! I didn't use the supplied hardware but instead 1 3/4 m6 Allen head bolts like the original wheel had. One of my favorite upgrades

With the supplied spline mount it will fit your boat.

I got mine from Ski Boats of Charlotte...I think I saved 10 dollars over my local dealer. If I had remember my boat show discount flyer I would have broken even. I like both folks so I like to spread the love.

I think whatever MC dealer you have near will have to order it from Gere Marie...

Let me know what you come up with for the decal. I was working on getting the shield laser engraved onto a piece of stainless steel or aluminum, but the one quote I got back was about $75. $40 minimum for the stainless, $20 to convert the graphic, and $15 to engrave it. I'm still trying to figure out other options.

I'm thinking of just sticking a decal over the one that comes with it. The best bet would be to do a domed decal. Something like this:

hey guys, quick question. I just got an email back from the seller on these, he needs to know which hub before he ships it. 2003 X2, same as JRW160. It's the splined hub, right?

JRW160
04-30-2013, 12:56 PM
I think it's splined, but I just bolted mine to the old hub.

I have only heard back from 1 of the 3 who said they wanted one. If one falls through, I'll let you know.

I can also give you the contact info for the guy who made them. Since he already has the art converted and everything, it should be pretty easy for him to make another set.

Installed today on my '05 X2. It's a huge improvement over the factory wheel. Big thanks to JRW for the badge. I got it fast and it fit perfectly.

For those wondering, the hub is splined but there really isn't any reason to use the one that comes with the wheel, unless your just after a different look. I kept my factory hub.

Anyone got an idea where I could get this wheel for a similar price as in the original post? I would love to put in in a 09 X2......
