Where can I get a Suzuki PTT trim switch (Throttle)

Hi folks,
The 'up' on the PTT switch on the throttle is broken. The 'down' works fine, and both 'up' and 'down' work fine at the switch on the engine so i'm convinced it's just the switch thats knackered.

Can anyone recommend where I may buy one online? Local deal would be a total ripoff here in Ireland.

Engine is a Suzuki DF 140, pic of throttle lever attached.

Thanks folks!

I went through this a few years ago and the Suzuki price is quite horrendous.

However I couldn't find a similar switch anywhere so ended up paying the man.

I've found more recently that this sort of part can be delivered from the states within a couple of days a lot cheaper than ordering locally.

I've used Browns Point.

and Boats.net

who are both very helpful


Here in the UK,

and pacer,

are really helpful with mail order.

I recently had this problem with my Merc and just took part of the lever trim off to access the switch and then cut the three wires holding it in place, prior to parting the switch and cleaning the contacts.

I think I was quoted 25 for a new one from my local dealer but the repair didnt take much more than 30mins.

However, the merc switch is a great design that just springs apart and then allows the contacts to be cleaned with a bit of abrasive paper.

Good luck
