    Need Yamaha Mechanic

    Need Good Yamaha Mechanic.

    Remove the cowling a check to see if a bolt or something has come loose and is blocking the shifting levers from totally engaging (at the front of the motor).

    This happened to me a year or so ago. It would go in forward fine but reverse only partially.

    Is it a small bolt about 1-1/2" long and maybe 1/8" in diameter? 1/4" or 5/16" head?

    It's been so long but I think that was about the size of mine and it came from the back of the motor on the lower right hand side, very hard to see because it was so low and hard to get to. Maybe that's why it wasn't tighter and worked loose.

    Don't know what they call the part in goes in but it's like a water jacket cover or something. There's one on right side and one on left side.

    There are several other bolts in the cover so if you match the head size it will narrow your search.

    Good luck and let me know if you find it.


    P.S. By the way, if you find it DON'T OVERTIGHTEN IT!!!!

    Don't want it to break!

    You really shouldn't have much of a problem, use a flashlight if you need and just slowly look around and you'll find it.

    If you do need help though let me know and I'll do whatever I can.

    Well, I got to looking around and I found where the bolt goes. It went to one of the clips that hold the colwing on the motor. How in the [email protected] it came loose and unscrewed straight up is a wonder and no telling how long it has been out.

    Good thing it is fixed now.

    Thanks to everyone for all their help.
