nylon gears


My friend bought a brand new one of these engines and yes at around forty hours the nylon gear chewed up and his engine seized in the middle of nowhere. The guys at Yamaha morisset were great it was about six weeks and he was back on the water with a new power head .also the anode down near the propeller wears out at a rapid rate .these four stroke engines are not for me to much trouble to maintain to heavy , (terrible power to weight ratio) yes they are cheaper to run than the two strokes but they lack in power in comparison.

Yamaha Will Not Stand Behind Their Warranties


Have new in line four 200 for a year. It threw a rod and I can not get Yamaha to honor the warranty. Worst customer support ever. Local Yamaha mechanics won't even look at it because they say Yamaha will never reimburse them for their work. So why is there even a warranty?

Nylon gear trouble


Was awesome until it sheared the nylon gears in head and clogged the oil galleries causing motor to sieze after 40hrs use. Is at shop now and don't know if it's a rebuild or new one. Hope yamaha's warranty doesnt take forever cause it feels like someone choppedy leg off with no boat. Not happy jan!

It stopped!
