Universal Rudder Adapter Installation

The Universal Rudder Adapter is designed to give you the option to mount a Bixpy Motor on to the rudder of most kayaks that offer a 10mm (roughly 3/8”) rudder bracket or rudder hole. If your kayak does not have a 10mm rudder bracket, you can purchase one from us. There are two options available:


• Option 1: Bixpy Simple Gudgeon for kayaks or boats that have a flat area and sometimes even brass inserts already in place
• Option 2: Bixpy WillFit™ Gudgeon for more complex installations on kayaks with narrow or uneven sterns 


If your watercraft already has a rudder and you're simply replacing your rudder, you will likely be able to continue steering the Bixpy Rudder with your existing steering system. If not, the best option for steering the rudder adapter is the Foot Pedal Steering System. The other option is to use the Bixpy Hand Steering Kit, which leaves your feet free in case you're in a kayak with foot pedal drive or a kayak that has foot rests and doesn't allow for the insulation of the foot steering rails.

We’re always blown away at the creativity and handiwork of our users and ambassadors. These super users are kind enough to document their installations and share it with the Bixpy Community.  Click here for a playlist of installations by our experts in the field.
