This replacement Hobie Mirage Idler Cable 81212001 works with V1 drives with idler cables that measure 14.25 in. long.
The original 2008 idler cable was stretched beyond adjustment and this is the replacement. I also purchased and installed the idler pulley V2 while was at it. Wasn't sure it was the right pulley but an ACK employee assured me it would fit and he was correct - thank you. Both were very easy to install.
My wife's old mirage idler cable stretched with only the protective coating holding the part in one piece. The pedals made a knocking noise just before the break happened. Then a week later my mirage idler did the same thing. Easy replacement, excellent fast prompt shipping!
