Having problems with my yamaha finding neutral. I will shift it into neutral, motor will be in neutral, but the motor will not start. turn the key and nothing. shift the shifter back and forth while turning the key and she turns right over. any ideas on what might be causing this? anyone have similiar problems? thanks for any insight, almost got stuck on the lake the other day

Open the hood, and look on the left or right hand side (think it's right) and look near the pan of the motor - you'll see two throttle cables with rod eyes on them... you're after the one that is NOT connected to the Carb... I believe the rod eye is oriented horizontal.

Look around that connection... there should be a neutral switch. You may need to adjust the position of that neutral switch so that when the gearcase is in neutral the neutral switch is working as intended.

I recently had the same problem with my 2003 F75. Eventually, shifting back and forth didn't work and I had to use the trolling motor to get home. It was the neutral safety switch that went bad. I don't know which model you have, but I had difficulty reaching the switch (buying a service manual this winter)and brought it to a marina. The labor was around $150. The part is $30.

Thanks for the help guys. It must be the neutral switch, I tried manually pushing it in (I heard wrapping the bar with aluminum helps depress the button) but that didn't work either. It looks like an easy fix, but my fat fingers can't get in there

    • Good question, why didn't they find any more?  Did those two infected deer parachute in?  Were they dropped by a helicopter?  I find it fascinating they could get as far as Lanesboro and they only find two out of thousands.  Like I said, they're bad at conspiracy.    Policing the borders?  How about a billboard, a radio ad, or a twitter campaign?  How about having the highway patrol pull over anyone with hooves or antlers sticking outta their truck box or laying on a flatbed coming across the border on the interstate?    My wealth and land ownership shouldn't disqualify me from questioning the DNR.  It used to be a staple of a free country to question your government.  Somehow now it's more important to kneel before the all knowing DNR and take whatever they want to shove in our mouths?  If this is real science and a real mitigation effort, let's have a discussion about it.  If the DNR wants to stop this spread, why are they not welcoming with open arms feedback like mine when it comes to import enforcement, and an effective PR campaign?  Cause guess what fella, lots of deer got hauled home from all kinds of places infected with CWD by uninformed folks that are going to cut up those critters and throw the brains and spinal cords out in the woods at home.    So yeah, this is either a giant hoax, or the DNR has no idea what the hell they're doing. 
    • I just checked on the fans that I bought, there 4.7 inchs sq and 1.25 thick. I thought they were 5 inch thick but I was wrong. They are 110v and I think I will put one inside on the bottom plate and see how it works. And I like where you have your fishingstar.
    • Slowly getting the outside buttoned up 
    • Yea I had that idea too 
    • I saw three or four huts in the little wet area in the lake vadnais area just off country road F.   But they would probably get upset if you set traps there...    right next to the new path that goes south along the east side of the lake. 
    • In the olden days, pigs were fed garbage.  Trichinosis was a problem.  Then laws were passed so any garbage fed to pigs had to be cooked first.  Problem went away.   According to CDC there hasn't been a case of trichinosis except from eating wild game like bear meat for many years.  
    • From a quick google search it looks like waveinn.com or the bay of e might be your best bets, if you don't want to buy from shimano.
    • Does anyone know of a place you can get spare Shimano Sedona spools?? I run braid in the summer and don't want to run it on the ice.
