Re: Regulator needed between Yamaha Outboard and Battery?

Been years since I've seen an electric starter on a 9.9, seems kind of silly, doesn't it.

Re: Regulator needed between Yamaha Outboard and Battery?

Yes if the outboard is easy to get to and you have enough room and angle to pull the cord, but down a well or on the transom of a tri, remote start makes a lot of sense. The Yamaha 9.9 4 stroke high thrust is a fantastic auxiliary for cats and tris, reliable, very fuel efficient and where else can you get the whole engine, gearbox and propeller system new for less than 2000. Motored the whole length of the Canal du Midi, Lateral and Gironde from Port St Louis to Bordeaux with a 32 ft cat using a Yamaha 9.9 plus numerous English Channel crossings motoring most of the way. It's a beautiful bit of engineering.
