Anyone know where I can get a new throttle arm? I got a new shift knob and the old one didn't come off nicely. It's off an '04 X9. Dealer wants $140 for the arm. Ouch

An option for some bling... http://www.danamarineproducts.com/GroupCatProducts.cfm?CatId=13&group_id=2&page=1&CFID=4923735&CFTOKEN=2347c6c-3d8068eb-4397-47c6-8588-60984bb9fed3

I don't know much about their products but I looked at pylons at one point and remembered these.

Is that the bolt (or threaded rod) connecting the shift knob to the shifter arm that sheared-off? If so can you back out the bolt in the shifter arm?

It was all one piece from what I can tell.

If you haven't fixed this yet, I have another option for you. You could drill a 1/4" or 5/16" hole in both the knob and the shaft, tap both for a bolt, cut the head off a 1.5"-2" bolt, then thread half the bolt into the knob, and finally screw the knob and other half of the bolt onto the shaft. Use loctite on both ends and it'll work for many years to come.

I thought about the same thing but I think he's got a new knob he wants to install. I guess you could try to bore and tap the handle with the same thread size as the new knob and use the same technique.

I just had the exact same thing happen to me on my 03 Maristar 230. You need to find out which control box you have. I ended up buying it from the dealer as I didnt know. Yours looks very similar and maybe identical to mine. For under $200 I ended up getting the entire control box. If you dont want to replace the whole assembly, you can take the arm assembly from the new control box (it ships already separated from the control box) in the shipping box. Then put the new arm with your new knob, onto the existing control box on your boat. The hardware is included. The new unit makes it easy to see the set screw you need to remove to get the arm off the old control box. Good luck. :D

Because of where the arm broke, at the bottom of the threads, it was unusable and unrepairable. Ended up getting a deal on a new arm from my dealer.
