Hello and excuse me for starting a new topic but I cannot find one on Steering Wheels. I have a 2005, 256 SSi in need of a new or updated steering wheel. I have tried my "lazy," local dealership that is 50 miles from my home and they act like sending me information on this part is a pain in their A**. Can anyone recommend a site that might have information about Chaparral parts like this. I called Robin Comfort in Customer Service but had to leave a message. Once again I am left with having to contact members for help with my Chaparral parts needs. Thanks everyone.

You've got some choices even within the Chaparral models available. For your boat, ('05 256 SSi) I really like the later 905 mahogany 3 spoke wheel. (such as is used on an '09 275 SSi) Chaparral Part # 43.00019

Or, if you don't like wood, you could go with the newer SSx 831 model. Part # MS8313531CB. Don't have to stay with what was stock, but you will want a wheel with the Teleflex OEM splined hub.

Joe is of course the source.

Just curious Shepherd, would you not also be a source for those boaters located in Canada? Don't be shy now.

Not really; there's much larger dealers than us up here. I don't mind stocking or ordering parts from Chaparral to customize and/or upgrade our stock and customers boats where funds permit. I feel we have the bare necessities. My bosses might disagree - 'WTH have you ordered NOW??!!' came often be heard shouted in anguish.

Really, I just try my best to be an ideas man on what looks good and is doable. Of course, the 2 don't always go together. :P

Any thoughts on a steering wheel hub/cap for a 2002 220 SSi? Mine disappeared while towing it home one day. Let me guess....Joe?

You need to know what hub do you have.

Hubs are standard - 19 Teeth Spline or Tapered Hub. Many models have adapters for both. So, it is really hard to buy wrong one. Wheel diameter is 13.5-14in.

UFLEX is a good brand, many modern boats have wheels from them (probably Chaparral as well)
http://uflexusa.ultraflexgroup.com/
Teleflex models are not as good.

Chaparral doesn't make its own steering wheels, as well as most of the parts - they are available from third parties cheaper, if to buy them not as an OEM:)

Just remove Chaparral logo from old wheel and put on new one. Or get new logo from Joe.

Many wheels are on eBay and Amazon. You can buy simple one for 30 or premium for 300+ deers

I recently upgraded to the Mahagony three spoke that Cecil's had on sale for 174 deer. Mine was a spline shaft...very easy to change out.

I too hit up Joe at cecils for the mahogany steering wheel. Sure does look snazzy and smooth to the touch! 174 deer is a lot but worth it.
