    Default I have an BF8 tiller style out

    I have an BF8 tiller style outboard. The twist grip throttle is locked in the start position. It has a knob on the end of the throttle arm that will lock tension the throttle and lock it at a your desired speed. I removed the tension assembley and can now see down the shaft of the tiller arm but I cannot tell why this thing is still locked and will not rotate. Anyone with some ideas.

    Default "I don't know Hondas, but

    "I don't know Hondas, but my first thought was is it in gear, or is there some type of lock-out when it is in gear as a safety device?"

    Default It can't have anything to

    It can't have anything to do with the gear actually because it is a cable type twist throttle and I can move the throttle under the motor hood. It is something to do with the inside of the handle and it has it locked in the one position.
