Hi Fence,

There should be a bolt on the shaft that the motor pivots on. Try backing that off a bit. It is there to adjust the steering tension and it may have seized up a little.
As for it not throttling back this should not be effected by the steering at all and would be a adjustment at the carby's. Either butterfly stop position or idle mixture.

Tony.

Have you changed it to a steering wheel (and left the tiller arm attached)? If so - when you connected the steering wheel - was the wheel already on a left lock - that would mean the outboard would be going straight ahead when the wheel is on (or near) a full lock.... If you get what I mean???....

Not sure about the throttle...

Thank you for the replies.The motor is however brand new and fitted by a Yamaha dealer.Yes has forward controls but yamaha leave the manual steer/throttle arm on the motor as well as a manual gear shift.In two weeks time they are going to look at ??? the removal of the manual throttle etc as this definately binds and hinders the forward control.
I am getting the impression that the lack of left hand turn is a problem with this motor and Yamaha don,t appear to have a quick fix.
Still hopeing for a reply from someone with the same motor or problems.
Thanks again for help so far.
bruce.

If you mean that you have the original wheel steering in the boat and have only changed the outboard - then it is possible the stainless steel connector bar from the end of the steering rod to the motor is the wrong length. This actually happened to me - took ages to figure it out.

Disconnect the motor from the steering. Put the wheel in dead centre - by counting the turns from lock to lock and halve it. Put the motor in dead centre by eye. Measure the length the bar should be or hold it up next to the steering - it should meet eye to eye. I expect that the bar will be too long if you can't turn left.
