5HP outboard stiff gear lever

    Small 5 Hp outboard I have been on the back of the boat all winter and the engine is running fine but the gear lever is very stiff to move into forward and reverse. It,ll go into gear but needs a bit of muscle. Its very little use on it since a service in 2018 so I cant figure out why it would be so stiff now. With cables and tubes its very to see anything in the engine without pulling things apart which I dont want to do. Any tips or tricks to try before I have to lug it to the repair shop?
