Is there such a thing as a reset for the Autohelm WIND ST 50? I purchased a boat with one that showed proper wind angle but not speed. I removed the sender, greased both the wind vane and cuos. now the wind speed is fine but the direction dowsnt move although looking at the vane directly, it points as it should. I did a calibration and since then the unit wont give proper direction. Any advice anyone?

I assume you have an ST-50 or ST60 windvane setup. These are the calibration instructions from the unit manual for the ST-50. They are the same for the ST-60 and ST-60+ units.

Hope it helps you.

Initial Calibration Windvane Alignment
Before the unit is used for navigational purposes the masthead transducer must be accurately aligned to the vessel. Before this procedure is carried out the windvane should be linearised as follows.

1 . Powerup lhe ST50 Plus Wind instrument.


2. Tum the vessel through two complete circles, making sure that the windvane remains in line with the wind -the instrument will automatically linearise the windvane.

Alignment
1. Press and hold CAL for 2 seconds until CO is displayed by the LCD.

2. Press < > to move the pointer to the correct wind angle.- WIND
- Press < > once to move the pointer by 1 degree.
- Press < > for 1 second to move the pointer by 10 degrees/second.
The LCD will now display the applied correction.

3. Press and hold CAL for 2 seconds to exit and store windvane alignment.

Windspeed Unit Selection

1 . Press and hold CAL until Ul (Knots) or U2 (Meters/second is displayed.

2. Press CALwithin 8 seconds to change the windspeed units selection.

3. After 8 seconds the wind instrument returns to normal operation.

SOURCE: autohelm st50 how to calibrate??? wind instrument

I had one. Don't think you calibrate it. Reading is relative to it's mounting base. To change the direction reading, you would need to rotate the base.

Are there consumer complaints about the wind noise caused by the overhead luggage cross bars?


You won't know whether you'll have a problem with wind noise until you try it. I've driven 4 rack-equipped vehicles over the years. The only rack that made noise was the dealer-installed rack on an old vehicle, and that was ONLY during cold, misty weather (drizzle or very thick fog). What this shows is that wind noise can be a very finicky thing, as far as what causes it. That also means that if it occurs, you can probably come up with a trick to change the air flow which will stop it from happening (I've heard of tricks as simple as a spiral wrap of rope around the cross bar stopping wind noise, but I bet every situation is different). None of the other racks, including the boat rack for Subaru`s, which used 2x4s for the cross bars, made any noise that I could hear. In fact, the auxiliary rack for my current car (only used when needing extra width for two boats) also uses 2x4 cross bars, and it makes no noise.

I wouldn't use factory cross bars. There might be some good ones out there, but I haven't seen them. The general rule is to go with aftermarket bars, as well as the necessary bar-mounting hardware.

Some people love fold-down J-hooks, but since it only takes 30 seconds to remove them and about one minute to install them, why not just take them off, leaving bare cross bars? I take them off when not needed. I even take them off when parked by the river during a trip. After all, if I can remove both of them in 30 seconds using just my hands, so can a thief. Anyway, a folded-down J-hook is still a very bulky item to have up there compared to a bare cross bar.

Same goes for saddles. It takes only a moment to install or remove them, so if you want to keep air resistance to a minimum or not worry about the potential for wind noise, just drive with a bare rack when not carrying boats.

How can one test a ST40 wind instrument ?


According to the Raymarine forum, aside from making sure that the spade lug connections are good and clean, there isn't a field test for the ST40. The recommended remedy is for you to send the complete unit to Raymarine for evaluation. Here's the link to that forum.
Sorry I couldn't be the bearer of better news.

This won\'t be easy for you if you don\'t the proper tools, You have to remove the wind lever assy, and the speed dial, Then wind side top cover, Then pull wind base plate assy, And check counter reset lever, to make sure spring didn\'t come loose, Putting the baseplate back on can be fun because of linkage to the wind assy

I have a windshield on a 2004 883xl harley. it is a high windshield but when i ride at speeds above 40mph it seems the wind is coming around the shield and pushing up against my chest and throat making it...


A windshield is supposed to direct the air up and over your head. In order to do this, the windshield must first be big enough. Too many people are opting to buy these small windscreens as opposed to full sized windshields. The wind screens are sufficient for the the sport bikes due to the way they are designed so that the rider lies down behind them. But, on a bike that is designed to be ridden in the upright postition, they don't work well. They may look cool but the don't keep the wind off of you.

Next, the windshield must be mounted at the correct angle. Usually, if the windshield is the proper design, this is not a problem as it's basically the same angle as the front end rake.

So, the only thing you can do to stop the problem you are having is to purchase a different windshield.

Autohelm mast Wind speed unit. Bottom bearing worn out. Can this be replaced, or where can I get a full replacement unit. Len


The part number for the lower pod is Q002. I am willing to bet that Raymarine will not have any more of these. The new ST60+ version will read faster than what the wind is actually.
