I am in the process of replacing the trim switch on a Yamaha throttle control. I have taken the control arm apart and it appears I will need to splice in the replacement switch. Is this the case? If so, are there any precautions I should take to avoid shorting anything out between the throttle and motor prior to cutting and any recommendations on the type of connection I should when splicing the three wires together?
Also, if someone has the correct part number for the replacement switch I would appreciate it. 2007 90hp Yamaha 2-stroke for a bass boat, so the control housing is side mounted at the helm of the boat. I think I found the part online(6X3-82563-01-00), but want to be certain before I buy it because it isn't cheap.
Appreciate the help.
