Default 2019 90hp Yamaha SHO tiller

Hi,

Anyone have issues getting the drive train out of forward gear to neutral? 2 times when launching the boat I couldn't get it into neutral to start the motor. Needed a little force, more then I think should be needed on a brand new motor. When I trailer the boat, the motor is in gear, should I have it in neutral?

John

I have the same exact motor and always leave mine in neutral when trailering. I think some guys leave theirs in gear but I've had no problems and absolutely love the motor.

Best to leave it in neutral. If you feel you need to have it in gear for travel, put it in neutral before launching. A little pressure on the prop with your foot while putting the shifter in neutral will usually get it out of gear, assuming you can reach the shifter while standing behind the boat.

I don't have an issue with trailering it while in neutral, I just never had to with my Mercury's. Just want to make sure there isn't a bigger problem behind this. Thanks for your comments.

Why would you trailer with it in gear?

Exactly my questions too. If the prop is built to spin 5000 to 6000 rpms in the water, what difference does it make if it spins a little on the trailer? None.
