T-H Marine Motor Stik Outboard Motor Support
There no application guide
Bought these stik with high hope i wouldn’t have to crawl under my dripping bass tracker to install my motor support bracket. While purchasing the stick I looked for a application guide to see if it fit my 90HP Mercury outboard and nowhere either in store information or packaging information could I find out which motor they would or would not fit.(no application guide) I'M lucky I don’t live fare from a bass pro store I bought a set and needless to say the only work on 115HP -150HP + up motors depending on which web site you go to motors
Of course Bass Pro was more than happy to refund me my money.

Works as advertised
I have a Yamaha F200XB and there is a grease fitting on the motor that prevents me from using both of the motor stiks. One seems to be doing the job just fine, so I have a spare. A motor support bracket will not work with the design of my trailer, so this is a very good solution for motor support. I read in some of the reviews that people were noticing some cracking of the plastic end caps. I purchased some 3/4 inch inside diameter o-rings to place one over the motor trim ram and glued on to the other end of the motor stik to help absorb shock and stress on the caps of the stik while trailering. I hope this will help to prevent cracking of the plastic end caps. Time will tell. I just have to remember to remove the o-ring from the trim ram when I remove the stik.

will not fit every motor
I' m sure this product would be a great alternative to a transom saver but I wish the manufacturer would have listed any motors it wouldn't work on. I have a 1998 yamaha 200 v-max and when you lower it down on the sticks it will crush one side of it because there is a small round piece cast into the motor in the middle of the pocket. The package warns you of a grease fitting on the port side of the motor but you really need to get down low with a flashlight and you will see this cast piece. If it fits your motor this would be awesome but I guess I'm just out of luck!

Questionable For Yamahas
I've been using a motor-totor for years without any incidents and will be going back to it. The motor stiks were difficult to slide on to the power trim rods initially. After the stiks were in place, the motor was lowered. Everything seemed to be working just fine. When the boat was disconnected from the truck, a visual inspection of the stiks revealed that they had broken off a grease fitting on the lower unit-evidently not enough clearance. Consequently, i wouldn't recommend these for a Yamaha motor
