Yam 703 throttle lever

The last thing I need to do to finally finish the PT upgrade is to fit the switch to the throttle lever.

As my old engine was manual the lever on the 703 has the "blanking plate" where the switch would normally sit.

Having fought with it for weeks now, I have decided that removal of the two screws that hold the neutral catch in place to get the switch in is not going to happen without some serious devastation of the lever, so does anyone have a spare with movable screws lurking in a box somewhere? (I don't care if it is manual, knackered PT, or has a hole where the switch used to be, I just need a lever I can dismantle!

I can swap it for the functional non PT one if that's any help.

Possibly, but as I have a shiny new switch to fit in the lever and sealing the switch so the rest of the insides of the console stay dry might be more fun.....

Just had a blast though google images - I doubt it. The 703 has a "vertical" orientation to the ovality - 701 is horizontal ,but thanks anyway.

I've just had a brainwave - the Suz lever might also work....

I have a Suz remotre box at home, but want to keep it intact for the next owner of the DT25. If it measures up I'll post later so some of you Suzi owners get the chance to clear some junk....
