Help Tip: If you have a question that has not been answered to your satisfaction in the archives, it is always best to start a new thread of your own. By starting your own thread, you will receive the maximum number of views by forum members.

Below are some additional forum policies in hopes of all iboats members will follow, Thank you.

1. Please do not reply to old threads or hijack existing threads. Old threads of a technical nature are like a library book, Please do not write in them.

2. Old threads should be considered archives and used for reference only. Please do not reply to them.

3. Do not take over someone elseís thread (aka hijack) with your own question, even if it is similar. If you have a question that has not been covered to your satisfaction in the archives, it is always best to start a new thread of your own.

4. If you have a question for the original poster (OP) and the thread is over 30 days old, send the OP a PM, he may not even visit the forums any longer, or may not notice your question in the old thread.

5. By starting your own thread, you will receive the maximum number of views by forum helpers that may not even notice your question when itís posted at the end of someone elseís thread. And those answers will be specific to your particular issue.

6. Please do not post to threads that have been inactive for more than 3 months unless you are the original poster. We have very active forums and any thread that remains inactive for that long should be considered "dead". It is especially confusing when there is an entirely new question posted to an old thread.

7. Posting at the end of any thread is considered to be hijacking the original posters thread which in turn subjects the thread to be closed if it continues to happen thus not making it fair to the original poster in the future had for some reason he/she needed to return for additional information or provide an update of the problem solved which is always welcomed within a reasonable amount of time frame.

8. Please note that you should see a red banner pop up near the bottom of each inactive thread asking you not to reply to old threads. The Red banner will read: Please note this thread has been inactive for 90 days. For the best results, please start a new thread.

Thank you all in advance for doing your part in helping iboats run a smooth ship.

  • Jonny 15 hp 1999 model

    I am posting this to enquire if any of you guys knows how to fit the gear changing remote cable to this motor as I wish to change my motor from tiller control to remote cable control.

    I have looked on the BRP site and the remote kit for this engine is strange in that I cant for the life of me understand how it is fitted to the motor..

    The throttle cable is no problem just the gear cable that has me stumped..If anyone has either a 15 or 9.9 jonny of similar age to mine as they are the same with the front gear shift fitted with remotes I would appreciate a picture of under the hood to see how the remote cables are set up..there are no pictures in the clymer manual and after reading the remote section on the 15-9.9 I am not any the wiser.

    I forgot to say this motor is a 2 cycle model..
    Regards LLB

            Apparently, nobody here has done the job. Your 15 shifts in the same way as my 6hp, with the shifter on the front of the motor. I looked at the kit, and can't figure out how it goes on, either, but it apparently does. Do you have the kit on hand, or are you just looking at the parts diagram?

            Like a lot of things, it's sort of hard to figure things out just looking at the parts explosion. Sometimes, when you have the parts in your hand, it's not so hard to figure out. Since they sell it, it must work.

            Sure...go ahead and laugh at my old aluminum boat. It's paid for!

              Not always the case my man..I have bought lots of stuff over the years that aint been worth squat but tbh I was just hoping that maybe someone on here had already done this conversion..

              As it appears that this is not the case if and when I get this sorted I will post the results on this thread for others..

              Thanks for the reply Cat

                  Re: Jonny 15 hp 1999 model

                  So, did you get your kit? If so, and you still can't figure it out, I think it's time for a trip to the shop. It will probably take a technician very little time to fit it.

                  If not, then I won't be of any more help than I was before.

                  Sure...go ahead and laugh at my old aluminum boat. It's paid for!

                    Hi Cat

                    I sussed how it works and it is been fitted if anyone else on here has trouble with their remotes for a similar year of motor I will be more than happy to post pics of how this works.

                    Once again thanks for your input.

                        Mine is remote operated. It has a lever on the right side of the motor with a linkage rod.
