Kicker motor tiller handle in the way?

Recommended Posts

So, just recently picked up a 2012 9.9 4 stroke electric long shaft Yamaha for a kicker to sit beside my Yammy 115 on the back of my Lund.  The kickers on the TV shows all seem to be the prerigged fully remote steering and throttle versions.  But mine of course is a tiller handle version.  I was wondering if people had problems with these handles getting in the way when they are tilted straight up...with lines, netting fish etc. or if there was any tricks with them.

 

I may decide to put on an itroll, protroll or controlling and I am definitely using some sort of steering bracket to link with the 115, but the tiller handle will need to stay...especially with the throttle and gear shift controlled through the handle. I know if I put the tiller handle straight out, when turned one way, the handle will hit the gunwale.

I never hade a problem with the handle. You get use to it very quick and can find a resting position that works best for you and your boat.

Controllking is the way to go. I'm a Rep. And sell the units for $214. Shipped to LOU members in the USA. $224 for Canadian members.

PM me if you are interested.

thanks Nemesis, but controllking or other unit, the tiller handle is still sticking out there.  Glad to hear other guys are finding it not to be in the way.  Unlike Josh`s merc, the handle will not, I believe, be able to be spun 180 degrees and stick out the back...more like just 90 degrees...either straight out or straight up in the air and the tiller handle on the newer Yammy`s anyway seem fairly long.

Actually, snow was down enough to wade into the back of my shed...my tiller handle will go back almost 180 but if back that far it will likely interfere with hard turns in one direction.

I'm not sure of the brand, I don't think the "Panther" stickers are original (but they look good on there). As far as I know Marine Tech/Panther never made a kicker mount.   $70.00 TYD in US 48. PayPal F/F payment.  I'm in southern Ohio so I doubt local pickup is an option.  Shipping might take a couple days as I ha

    • Downrigger Motor Rebuild

      Downrigger Motor Rebuild Anyone ever had an electric downrigger motor rebuilt? I have a pair of cannon Mag 10A and one motor is significantly weaker than the other, to the point it can barely raise a 10# ball. Hate to junk these without exploring all options first. I know nothing about electric motors so I guess the first question is can these even be repaired? Is a replacement motor an option?
