Question about Minn Kota Riptide St Saltwater 80 Bow Mount Trolling Motor

Remove pin pivot in transom mount

Do you just drive out the pin with a punch? I do not see any snap rings. The transom piece and clamps snapped off when I hit a log. Thanks, Kimo

    I just finished installing my new Maxum Pro 80 lbs. motor. I want to deploy it to see if it works correctly. Do I just pull the cord, or do I have to take out any safety lock pin before deploying it? If so would you tell me where it is located.

Look for clips around the pin inside the housing perimiter. If you see rings cut in the pin that don't have clips in them, they probably fell off. If used in a marine environment, the pin probably is corroded and locked to the housing. Use usual methods, i.e. heat and lube and.....a hammer wrench.

I was looking to see if I could find a replacement for the display and was able to confirm that the transducer is a single beam 120khz unit so I doubt that you've find a replacement for it ..as is .

The Airmar C-49 is the proper number for the connection line but like me I think your going to have to think about a whole new unit and or system . Been there already.

Best of luck.

The prop will turn on my minn kota endura 44 but it has no power is there a shear pin on this motor


Odds are you have sheared the pin (slides through the prop shaft) holding the prop, or you have damaged the slot on the prop that the pin sits in.

Prop is secured to the shaft with a metal nut, or flat plastic wing nut. Remove the nut to remove the prop. You may have to pry, slightly, the prop from the motor housing. Removed, you will see a whole in the shaft where a pin should be located. If the pin broke, it probably hit the floor when the prop was loosened. If the pin is intact, examine the rear side of the prop and look for damage to the plastic slot where the pin would sit making contact.

If you've snapped the pin, you can make a replacement with a nail using a hacksaw. Replacement pins can also be ordered from Minn Kota. If the back side of the prop is damaged (recess for the pin to sit), the prop is toast. Replacement props are often carried by Walmart, and include a new pin.

If neither part is broken, perhaps the prop was just not seated on the pin correctly allowing the prop to freewheel.

I have a Minn Kota Endura 30, transom mount. Just wondering, is there a way to rotate the controls so that I could use the motor on or near the bow of my 15' Aluminum fishing boat?


There is kind of a collar on the lower side of the head where the head connects to the shaft. There is a single bolt that runs right thru the shaft at this location, remove it. Rotate the head 180 degrees and re-install the bolt. 5 minute job.

It might help to view drawings at http://secure.northlandmarine.com/MinnkotaTillerSteering.html.
The spring loaded items are brushes. They carry current to the rotor/shaft/impeller causing them to spin. I have two Model 35s. One failed after a couple hours of use. The other was given to me because it did not work. Both suffer from water getting into the motor and causing corrosion and sticking brushes. Someone on another site commented that this was a common problem for Minn Kota.
