I have a New Yamaha 703 shifter that is 7 pin. The unit is (old stock) with 7 pin, and was wondering if there is some plug and play 10 wire adapter that the new engines uses.
Also,
could this unit be rewired with a new 10 pin harness. I payed $100 or so for it on ebay and did not realize it was the wrong pin combination for the engine. It may be cheaper to buy a new shifter, wired with the correct wireing harness.

Thanks.

If all the wires are in the harness, you may be able to just change the connector to the new configuration. If you need to add wires to the harness, it might be better to look into a whole new gizmo.

Sometimes those e-Bay bargains have a catch.

Jim you are probably right. I doubt that the wire has the ten wire's. I need to check and see if there is some type of adapter plug if anyone knows about one.
I did learn to ask questions when buying parts on ebay.
