Bixpy Motor Mount Adapters
Looking to find which Bixpy adapter will work best for your watercraft application? You have come to the right place. On this page we have provided a breakdown of each K-1 marine motor mount in order to assist you in getting the proper setup. On the Bixpy Steering Systems page, we have done a similar guide.
*Please note, we do not offer these mounts individually, but as an additional option to purchase with your Bixpy K-1 Electric Marine Motor Outboard Kit or your Bixpy K-1 Electric Marine Motor SUN80 Solar Panel Outboard Kit.
Most Paddle boards on the market have a removable center fin. The Bixpy Fin Brackets simply screw onto your Bixpy Motor and then attach to your board the same way your center fin does. The 3 fins below cover more than 90% of the boards on the market. The three adapters you can choose from are the Flip & Lock Fin Adapter, US Fin Box Adapter, and the Slide & Lock Fin Adapter.
*Note - Steering systems are not applicable when using a fin adapter. In these applications, steering is done with the use of a paddle.

Universal Kayak Adapter
The Bixpy Universal Kayak Adapter is designed to fit a variety of kayaks and canoes. The horizontal and vertical pipes are adjustable in both height and angle. You can use a variety of Bixpy Steering systems for turning your motor. The best options for steering would be the Bixpy Pole Steering or Tiller Steering Handle.
As every kayak is slightly different in shape and configuration, you will have to do a little bit of installation with this adapter, but rest assured, this adapter ships complete with all the nuts and bolts you’ll need to get the job done. This is a more complex adapter, requiring higher levels of DIY ability, so it's only recommended if none of the other adapters fit your kayak and you're comfortable taking on the task of installation or have access to a professional installer.

Universal Rudder Adapter
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.
The Vibe Bixpy-Ready Gravity Rudder offers a molded 10mm stainless steel pin that offers easy installation and not only fits all Vibe kayaks but can replace most other manufacturer rudders in seconds! It also offers a robust double hinged, 90° Slide & Stow mechanism that gets the rudder completely out of the water in a heartbeat!
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 footrests and doesn't allow for the insulation of the foot steering rails.

Power Pole Adapter
The Bixpy Power Pole Adapter allows you to quickly and easily add a Bixpy Motor to your kayak using your standard Micro Power Pole hole adapter slot.
Although many kayaks now ship with the Micro Anchor adapter holes already drilled and ready for mounting this adapter, it is not necessary to have pre-made holes or inserts to use the Bixpy Power Pole Adapter. This adapter will mount to any flat surface on the back or front of your watercraft. To test your setup, you can download and print the actual footprint of the adapter and test on your application. Click here to download a PDF file of the adpater's footprint.
The Power Pole adapter also ships with a steering lock bracket. This bracket allows you to lock your adapter and use your existing rudder to steer or leave the lock open and use one of our many steering systems to steer your motor.
