Tiller Conversion on Yamaha 50 2006 2 stroke

Discussion in 'Outboard Maintenance' started by BayStYat, Nov 15, 2014.

  1. I ordered my parts and want to get educated before I do the conversion.

    I am converting to tiller. Please give me some pointers if you have done one before.

    Thanks for the help

    I help a bud about ten years ago do a old Yamaha. I was shocked by how many parts it took. We even had to change the carb out. To one similar to a motorcycle. With the cable cam and spring on the side. It was definitely more than bolting on a handle. But it was pretty straight forward. It took about 4-6 beers. I don't know about the newer ones. I would guess there is more plug and play with the wiring now. Is this one fuel injected?
     

  3. no sir its the 2006 carburetor. There is a install kit that is required. I talked to Yamaha and they said that the kit makes it pretty strait forward. Nothing about changing the carbs so that a relief.

    Thanks swamp for the reply

    I stuck a tiller kit on a Yamaha 90 last year.  The kit is two parts, the tiller itself and the adapter kit that fits it to a specific motor.  Make sure you have the proper adapter kit before you start.  The instructions are pretty good and the tiller and parts are typical good Yamaha quality.  The most trouble I had was removing the nuts and studs that held the original stub tiller.  Hopefully yours won't be too corroded.  Access to the nuts without the proper tools can also be a problem.  New studs and nuts are included in the kit and if I recall, must be used because of the thicker base on the tiller.  Heat and an "Easy Out" may be your friends. If you're hooking up a tach or other instrumentation, the proper colored wires are to be found in the tiller itself capped off with a plastic plug.  If nothing goes wrong, it's an easy job, but then again, something always goes wrong.

    Your photo shows the nuts and stud that need to be removed. Your motor looks very clean and corrosion free, so you should have no problem.
     
  10. Awesome thanks for the help

    If I recall correctly, yes, the studs have to be removed because they're too short for the new tiller. Check the parts included. If there are new studs, then plan on using them.
     
  15. ahhh, ok makes sense now.

    Thanks again

    Someone should figure out how to fit the Yamaha four stroke tiller handle assembly onto a 2 stroke. That janky ass piece of plastic Yamaha considers a bushing is all but worthless and the tiller gets sloppy after after only a few hours.
     
  17. I am installing the style on my 2006 2 stroke.

    You're installing the 4 stroke tiller? I've been searching for one for my 25.
     
  19. I ordered the second one.
