    Best route for you to take is to contact Suzuki and see if they can supply something like this. It's a long shot, but might pan out.
    A good design/fabrication shop could probably make something like this for you. PM me if you need more direction.

    That's one option. A good fab shop could also rig a cable-operated shifter on the tiller handle.

    A bunch of guys on Long Island run 100hp plus outboards with home made tiller steer ( fancy pipe) and have the shift and controls with a short cable just to the right of where they stand. Could that be a workable option? A buddy of mine has a 60 Yamaha tiller motor and it has the shift on the tiller. Very nice as you don't have to look back and reach to shift.
