Yamaha wants you to have an outstanding ownership experience. Maintenance plays a big part in that. We’ve learned a lot about caring for outboards during our many years; so here’s some knowledge and simple tips on the subject.
From their painstaking design to their meticulous construction, Yamaha outboards are manufactured to provide you with years of enjoyment. However, they live in one of the harshest environments imaginable. High load, high-RPM operation, extreme temperatures and humidity, saltwater, sun, even long periods of non-use can all exact a heavy toll. And it’s not just Yamaha outboards. All outboards face these same challenges. Regular maintenance is important in helping your outboard meet the demands of these challenging environments, and only you can make sure it happens.
Spending a relatively small amount of time making sure your outboard’s in proper condition is simple to do, and:
You’ll have more hours of trouble-free enjoyment on the water.
You’ll preserve your investment with a higher resale value.
Your boat will be ready when you are.
It’s easier and costs less to maintain than repair.
