Default Tohatsu 40 4 stroke trim switch

Just picked up a 2016 model. Haven't ran it yet but the one thing I can see I don't care for is the trim switch location. Why in the world did they put it behind the throttle instead of on the end like the mercury big tiller? Is there any sort of conversion for this?

Because the switch in the end of the tiller is patented, that's why.

On the 40 tdli you can easily connect a remote switch wire from under the cowling on port side (butt connector already there) and run it to locate by your leg so as your driving and toggle up and down with right hand

At the end of the tiller by where your left thumb rests.

Guess it's not a patent issue then. Think I'm going to wire a remote switch like I had on my mercury.

I asked our Tohatsu rep about that trim switch in the tiller, he said he "thought" is was a patent issue, maybe he guessed wrong, and I evidently repeated it wrong, sorry?

Lol. No apology. I just need to get that crazy thing relocated.

Well, pic is rotated but you get the idea. Ran my wire and spliced inside the tiller.

i talked to the sales rep at lake area marince in lake charles, (owners son), and he said modifying the handle could result in void of warranty... but i figure if it messes up something bad, ill just order an oem tohatsu handle and replace it before bringing it in

Just order the trim switch. All I did was splice into the wire.

Haven't been able to run it much but I like it. I lost a little speed but really like the quiet operation. Best I've got was 41 on GPS but that was a max and not maintained. However, the prop I'm trying now, Yamaha black stainless 17 pitch with a little cup, handles better and comes out the hole pretty good. I ran 38 with it. Will have a tach this weekend and will also load for fishing. So we will see.
