Default throttle adjustment. yamaha 704 remote.

i have the yamaha 704 control with a f115. i need to put a little tension on the throttle adjustment screw. my selling dealer explained that after removing the screws,that squeezing the plastic cover so the little tits would pop out could be a little bit agravating. that was an understatment. i have attempted this several times and have had no luck yet. anybody been thru this yet? thanks.

Your dealer is correct, but gentle prying with thin blade screwdriver will be needed.

there is a high likelihood of breaking off one of the tits getting it off
get under there with your screwdriver, pry it up and close your eyes

When done, drill a 3/8" hole in front of the screw for the future.
