Strikemaster LazerMag Throttle Connection

10 posts in this topic

Does anyone know a good site to look at throttle connection for the tecumseh 2 HP engines? My linkage broke and I'm not sure how it's suppose to go back together. If I saw a picture of it, I think I could repair it myself.

Any ideas? Even if I saw a picture of someone's SM auger (behind the gas cap) I think I could fix it.

Thanks!

Goose:

You can order direct through Strikemaster's site, or take it to their customer service center in Big Lake. That's the option I'd take if it's nearby. I've never left there without being happy!

Big Lake is a few hours away so I'd like to be able to fix it myself. Like I said, I just need a pic of it and I think I can get it back together myself. Thanks though. I did talk with Big Lake a couple years ago and they were pretty good at handling my problem.

The strikemaster site also has pics of the parts you may need. Guessing they could get you a schematic if you just asked?

My Strikemaster handle busted last year and I called them and they sent me one free of charge in 2 days time. They may send you the part you need for free!

That wire is in fact what I'm talking about. I may have to give that a go.

yeah if you have your old linkage u can measure it out to the same exact length and throw it on....when mine broke it was right in the middle of hardcore fishing so i couldnt wait for parts so i did a quick fix...ended up never getting around to getting the part since it worked just fine and was actually stronger....but you could quick fix it and still order the part...it's only like $8.

I bought a Lazer back about 6-7 years ago at the ice show. In the first couple months the cable broke. Brought it in for warranty work and commented on it's poor design. They fixed it for free and that one broke again before the one year warranty. Figuring my time and fuel driving from Lonsdale to the North side of the cities was a lot so decided to fix myself. Ran some wire which has held together great.

The other big problem with that auger is that the plastic throttle handle sticks. You have to lift from the bottom side after drilling a hole to stop it from spinning.

A couple years ago the unit was stolen along with the atv it was mounted to. Just like the lemon atv they are both not missed.
