Bought a 2011 Bennington pontoon that came with a Yamaha 90hp 4 cycle motor. Want to replace the Yamaha motor with a 2002 Honda BF130A motor. Is it possible to splice the Honda control cable wires to the Yamaha top mount control box cable wires?

your best and simplest way it to get a honda BF130A control box for your boat. mismatching control boxes is NOT a good idea. Maby you can find a used one.

Agree, you really should use a Honda control box. Note the BF130 (514#) weighs quite a bit more than the Yamaha (362#). The BF130 motors also had a history of powerhead issues in certain series (cracked blocks), mentioned on various forums.
