Spare Kill Cord for a Yamaha 6hp Outboard

I want to buy a spare kill cord for a new 6hp Yamaha outboard.

Can anyone recommend a site where I can order this online for postal delivery please?

Is it unique to this engine or is it a common product across several ranges? It looks remarkably low-tech to me but you never know these days!

Many thanks

Is it the one with the u shaped piece of plastic that you fit under a red button? If so very common. Try ebay, marine superstore, or towsure.

I believe they are engine make specific. You can buy a selection kit on the internet for a few bucks. Search kill lanyard on google.

Remember to make sure that any kill cord you buy though has a strong inner core to it, and it's not just a bit of curly plastic.

If it doesn't have an inner core, you run the risk of the kill cord snapping, rather than it pulling out and stopping the engine.

We always get them from the engine manufacturer to make sure they have the inner core etc

Make sure the one you purchase says that it fits your engine. There's a bunch of them out there, and they're not all interchangeable.

A friend of mine recently called the USCG for a ten mile tow for a non-starting engine, and discovered halfway back that the kill switch key in place was for their jetski rather than their Honda 115. They deferred further testing until back at the ramp, where a key swap had it working fine.
