You should just push the button in and the blue small light changes I think from fixed to flashing and then the gear is disengaged, I then just touch the throttle up. I think then you can get it back the same way. Just do a test in clear water to make sure first. I regulary do this if I leave the engine on when moving about the boat to save the disaster of engaging if you fell against it

That sounds better then just leaving it or turning the engine off. I wonder why they did away with the old system ?

I think the old one being a cable system had the clutch just below top of lever that worked well to stop accidential engaging and had the large balck push button at the side of the lever if you wished to totally disengage and also increase engine revs
