First rule of travelling to Scotland's remote west coast... always take tools.

Could be something or nothing. There's adjustment at the throttle control too, so hopefully it's just that and not a worn clutch dog. You're in luck... Ardronan Marine are based at Lerags, Oban. They're a main Honda and suzuki dealers. Give them a call tomorrow on 01631 566123

Don't know re Yammie dealers in Oban. But can recommend Ardorn Marine in Loch Feachon about 8 miles south of Iban I use them all the time good guys. Hope this helps.

Good that you are sorted, the Ardoran lot are a good bunch.

Just for future reference Stoddarts of Oban are Yamaha dealers.

Id still go to Ardoran
