It's just two rings with set screws in them then the handle slides in and you tighten the set screws
I'd shorten the handle & put pods on the back end.
DO NOT cut that handle down. You need the leverage. Figure out what side you are going to shoot from. Turn your motor so the handle sits on the opposite side. Put an eye bolt in the seat and run a short bungee over the tiller handle. I have also found that although it takes some getting used to, that you will wear yourself our a lot less if you move your handle to the right side. Cheers
I wondered about that as I read to put the handle on the other side I have always ran an outboard with that side so would be strange putting it on the other side might have to try it
You'll actually get used to it pretty quickly.
How noticeable is the difference because I have never ran a mud motor before but it's only a 6.5 hp and I didn't think it was that bad ?
If you didn't have any issues I would say leave it. Come to think of it when I had a 212 it wasn't that bad but with the 420 it is a workout. Also, from the looks of it you probably are sitting, whereas I stand when I drive. Cheers
I can sit I just ran on my knees so I wasn't standing
I shortened the handle on my swamp runner mini by almost a foot.
I posted some similar suggestions on the boats/blinds side. Can't see the transom mount for your motor but maybe you can drill and place a stop pin where it tilts up/down. BW does this on their lite motors.
