    My friend has a 1998  2 stroke 25hp Yamaha. It was originally a tiller motor, but when he bought it, it was set up for a console... and is still currently in that condition. I would love to get the motor and have it converted back to tiller for a little skiff i have. I do not believe he has any of the parts to do so. I really do not know much about outboards, so I was wondering how difficult and how expensive it would be to do so? thanks - al

    I did the same thing with a 25 four stroke. Search e-bay for a tiller handle kit that will fit your motor. The dealers charge way too much for them. I did have a dealer install mine, I think it was about an hour of labor. If the motor doesn't have power trim or elec start you could prob get it done for under $200.
