Use only a counterclockwise rotation propeller with this engine... Counterclockwise propellers are marked with a letter "L" after the size indication... The wrong type of propeller could cause the boat to go in an unexpected direction, which could lead to an accident...

Page 13

Give-way Vessel The vessel which does not have the right- of-way has the duty to take positive and timely action to stay out of the way of the Stand-On vessel... Normally, you should not cross in front of the vessel with the right-of- way... You should slow down or change directions briefly and pass behind the other vessel... You should always move in such a way that the operator of the other vessel can see what you are doing...

Page 14

Crossing When two power driven vessels are cross- ing each others path close enough to run the risk of collision, the vessel which has the other on the starboard (right) side must keep out of the way of the other... If the other vessel is on your right, you must keep out of its way; you are the Give-Way vessel... If the other vessel is on your port (left) side, remember that you should maintain course and direction, provided the other vessel gives you the right-of-way as it should...

Page 15

Reading Buoys and Other Markers The waters of the United states are marked for safe navigation by the lateral system of buoyage... Simply put, buoys and markers have an arrangement of shapes, colors, numbers and lights to show which side of the buoy a boater should pass on when navigating in a particular direction... The markings on these buoys are oriented from the perspective of being entered from sea- ward (the boater is going towards the port)... This means that red buoys are passed on the starboard (right) side when proceeding from open water into port, and black buoys are to port (left) side... When navigating out of port, your position with respect to the buoys should be reversed; red buoys should be to port and black buoys to star- board...

Page 16

Remember, markings may vary by geo- graphic location... Always consult local boat- ing authorities before driving your boat in unfamiliar waters...

Page 18

There are two types of gasohol: gasohol containing ethanol and that containing methanol... Gasohol containing ethanol can be used if ethanol content does not exceed 10% and the fuel meets minimum octane ratings... Gasohol containing methanol is not recommended by Yama- ha because it can cause fuel system dam- age or engine performance problems... EMU00858

Page 19

The performance of your outboard motor will be critically affected by your choice of propeller, as an incorrect choice could adversely affect performance and could also seriously damage the motor... Engine speed depends on the propeller size and boat load... If engine speed is too high or too low for good engine performance, this will have an adverse effect on the engine...

Page 20

At full throttle and under a maximum boat load, the engines rpm should be within the upper half of the full throttle operating range, as listed in SPECIFICA- TIONS on page 4-1... Select a propeller which fulfills this requirement... If operating under conditions which allow the engines rpm to rise above the maxi- mum recommended range (such as light boat loads), reduce the throttle setting to maintain the rpm in the proper operating range...

Page 21

Yamaha outboard motors or Yamaha approved remote control units are equipped with start-in-gear protection device(s)... This feature permits the engine to be started only when it is Neutral... Always select Neutral before starting the engine...

Page 28

While the main switch is being pressed in at ON or START, the choke system will switch on, to supply a rich mixture required to start the engine... (When the key is released, it will switch off automati- cally... )

Page 29

The lock-plate on the end of the lanyard must be attached to the engine stop switch for the engine to run... The lanyard should be attached to a secure place on the operators clothing, or arm or leg... Should the operator fall overboard or leave the helm, the lanyard will pull out the lock plate, stopping ignition to the engine... This will prevent the boat from running away under power...

Page 38

The fuel reading can be affected by the position of the sensor in the fuel tank and the attitude of the boat in the water... Oper- ation with bow-up trim or continuous turning can give false readings...

Page 39

The meter displays fuel flow within one hour, at the rate of current engine opera- tion... If twin engines are installed on your boat, the meter will display total fuel flow of Port and Starboard side engine... It also displays PS indication at the same time... By pressing set button, the meter will display fuel flow of starboard side engine and S indication... By pressing set button again, the meter will display fuel flow of port side engine and P indication... By pressing set button again, the meter will display total fuel flow...

This meter displays the total amount of fuel consumed since the meter was last reset... Repeatedly push and release the mode button until the indicator on the face of the meter points to total (TTL)... To reset the total fuel consumption to 0, press the set and mode buttons together...

Page 41

8 Fuel consumption varies greatly with boat design, weight, propeller used, engine trim angle, sea conditions (including wind), and throttle position... Fuel consumption also varies slightly with the type of water (salt, fresh, and contaminate levels), air temperature and humidity, cleanliness of the boat bottom, engine mounting height, skill of the operator, and individual gasoline formulation (winter or summer fuel and amount of additives)... 8 The Yamaha digital speedometer and

both front and rear cowling hooks should be released at the same time... If not, adjust the cable adjuster for the rear clamps... 8 Make sure the cable operates smooth-

Page 45

Do not continue to operate the engine if the warning device has activated... Con- sult your Yamaha dealer if the problem cannot be located and corrected...

Page 46

The warning for oil filter clogging is simi- lar to the warnings for low oil level and overheating... For easy troubleshooting, it is advisable to check for engine overheating first, then oil level and finally oil filter clogging...

Page 48

Incorrect engine height or obstructions to smooth water flow (such as the design or condition of the boat or acce- ssories such as transom ladders/depth finder transducers) can create airborne water spray while the boat is cruising... Severe engine damage may result if the motor is operated continuously in the presence of airborne water spray...

Page 49

Mount the outboard motor on the center line (keel line) of the boat, and ensure that the boat itself is well balanced... Otherwise, the boat will be hard to steer... For boats without a keel or which are asymmetrical, consult your dealer...

Page 50

To run your boat at optimum efficiency, the water-resistance (drag) of the boat and outboard motor must be made as lit- tle as possible... The mounting-height of the outboard motor greatly affects the water-resistance... If the mounting-height is too high, cavitation tends to occur, thus reducing the propulsion; and if the pro- peller tips cut the air, the engine speed will rise abnormally and cause the engine to overheat... If the mounting-height is too low, the water-resistance will increase and thereby reduce engine efficiency... Mount the engine so that the anti-cavita- tion plate is in alignment with the bottom of the boat ... NOTE:

Page 51

As gasoline has changed, the amount of additives such as aromatics and oxy- genates has increased... These additives are important for the engines in passenger cars, but they can have detrimental effects in marine engines, particularly 2 cycle out- boards because of increased deposits in the combustion chamber... When enough deposits collect, piston rings begin sticking... Performance drops and engine wear increases dramatically...

Page 52

This engine uses the oil injection system, which provides superior lubrication by ensuring the proper oil ratio for all operat- ing conditions... No fuel premixing is need- ed (except during break-in)... Simply pour gasoline into the fuel tank and oil into the oil tank... Convenient indicator segments indicate the status of the oil supply... For details on reading the indicator segments, see Oil level indicator in this chapter... To fill the engine oil tank, proceed as fol- lows:

Page 53

2) Turn on the main switch... The oil injection system will automatically feed oil from the remote oil tank to the engine oil tank...

Page 54

The oil level lines on the remote oil tank indicate the amount of additional oil that can be added to the tank... The top oil level line indicates approximately 1... 9 L (0... 5 US gal, 0... 4 Imp gal) can be added, and the bottom oil level line indicates approxi- mately 3... 8 L (1 US gal, 0... 8 Imp gal) can be added...

Page 55

Oil has not been added... Buzzer will sound... Engine speed is automati-

Page 56

Check throttle, shift, and steering for prop- er operation before starting the engine... The controls should work smoothly, with- out binding or unusual free play... Look for loose or damaged connections... Check operation of the starter and stop switches when the outboard moter is in the water...

Page 57

3) Watch for oil flowing through the oil feed pipes... After any air in the oil lines has been expelled, the oil injec- tion system should supply oil normal- ly... If no oil is flowing after 10 minutes of idling, consult your Yamaha dealer...

Page 58

Your new engine requires a period of break-in to allow mating surfaces of mov- ing parts to wear in evenly... Correct break- in will help ensure proper performance and longer engine life...

Page 59

3) Second hour: Accelerate at full throttle onto plane, then reduce engine speed to three- quarter throttle (approximately 4,000 r/min)... Vary engine speed occasional- ly... Run at full throttle for one minute, then allow about 10 minutes of opera- tion at three-quarter throttle or less to let the engine cool...

Page 60

2) If there is a fuel joint or a fuel cock on the boat, firmly connect the fuel line to the joint or open the fuel cock...

Page 61

In case of dual-engine operation, when the main switch is turned on, the buzzer operates for a few seconds and stops automatically... Should either of the dual engines stall, the buzzer operates...

Page 62

The rotation angle of the neutral throttle lever or the free accelerator should be determined upon the engine temperature... When the engine is cold, it is necessary to rotate the lever a little farther...

Page 64

A continuous flow of water from the pilot hole shows that the water pump is pumping water through the cooling pas- sages... If water is not flowing out of the pilot hole at all times while the engine is running, do not continue to run the engine... Overheating and serious dam- age could occur... Stop the engine and check to see if the water inlet on the lower casing is blocked... If the problem cannot be found and corrected, consult your Yamaha dealer...

Page 65

When operating in Reverse, go slowly... Do not open the throttle more than half... Otherwise, the boat may become unsta- ble, which could result in loss of control and an accident...

Page 66

Let it cool off for a few minutes at idle or low speed first... Stopping the engine immediately after operating at high speed is not recommended...

Page 67

The trim angle of the outboard motor helps determine the position of the bow of the boat in the water... The correct trim angle will help improve performance and fuel economy while reducing strain on the engine... The correct trim angle depends upon the combination of boat, engine, and propeller... Correct trim is also affected by variables such as the load in the boat, sea conditions, and running speed...

Page 68

To adjust the trim angle while the boat is moving, use the power trim and tilt switch located on the remote control device or tiller handle, if so equipped...

Page 69

Too much trim-out puts the bow of the boat too high in the water... Performance and economy are decreased because the hull of the boat is pushing the water and there is more air drag... Excessive trim-up can cause the propeller to ventilate, which reduces performance further... When trimmed-out too much, a boat may porpoise (hop in the water), which could throw the operator and pas- sengers overboard... EMU00283

Page 70

If the engine will be stopped for some time, or if the boat is moored in shallows, the engine should be tilted up to protect the propeller and casing from damage by collision with obstructions, and also to reduce salt corrosion...

Page 71

1) If there is a fuel joint or a fuel cock on the boat, disconnect the fuel line or close the fuel cock...

Page 72

It is strongly recommended that the optional chromium-plated water-pump kit be installed if the outboard is to be used in turbid (muddy) water conditions...

TRAILERING OUTBOARD MOTOR The motor should be trailered and stored in the normal running position... If there is insuf- ficient road clearance in this position, then trailer the motor in the tilt position using a motor support device such as a transom saver bar...

Page 77

When storing your Yamaha outboard motor for prolonged periods of time (2 months or longer), several important pro- cedures must be performed to prevent excessive damage... This is especially important for your oil injection-equipped outboard motor due to the lean oil ratios used at idle prior to shutting the engine off for the season... It is advisable to have your outboard motor serviced by an authorized Yamaha dealer prior to stor- age... However, the following procedures can be performed by you, the owner, with a minimum of tools...

Page 78

Cooling system flushing is essential to pre- vent the cooling system from clogging up with salt, sand, or dirt... In addition, fogging of the engine is mandatory to prevent expensive engine damage due to rust... Per- form the flushing and fogging at the same time... 1) Remove the top cowling and silencer

Page 79

3) Fill the oil tanks... This prevents the for- mation of condensation... For models with a remote tank, it may be necessary to manually override the control unit to completely fill the engine main tank... (Refer to the Troubleshooting section, Temporary action in emergency... )...

Page 80

Battery electrolyte is poisonous and dangerous, causing severe burns, etc... It contains sulfuric acid... Avoid contact with skin, eyes, or clothing... Antidote: EXTERNAL; Flush with water... INTERNAL; Drink large quantities of water or milk... Follow with milk of magne- sia, beaten egg, or vegetable oil... Call physician immediately... EYES; Flush with water for 15 minutes and get prompt medical attention... Batteries produce explosive gases: Keep sparks, flame, cigarettes, etc... away... Ven- tilate when charging or using in a closed space... Always wear eye protection when working near batteries... KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN...

Page 81

If replacement parts are necessary, use only genuine Yamaha parts or equiva- lents of the same type and of equivalent strength and materials... Any part of inferi- or quality may malfunction, and the resulting loss of control could endanger the operator and passengers... Yamaha genuine parts and accessories are available from a Yamaha dealer...

Page 83

The spark plug is an important engine component and is easy to inspect... The condition of the spark plug can indicate something about the condition of the engine... For example, if the center elec- trode porcelain is very white, this could indicate an intake air leak or carburetion problem in that cylinder... Do not attempt to diagnose any problems yourself... Instead, take the outboard motor to a Yamaha dealer... You should periodically remove and inspect the spark plug because heat and deposits will cause the spark plug to slowly break down and erode... If electrode erosion becomes excessive, or if carbon and other deposits are excessive, you should replace the spark plug with another of the correct type...

Page 84

If a torque-wrench is not available when you are fitting a spark plug, a good esti- mate of the correct torque is 1/4 to 1/2 a turn past finger-tight... Have the spark plug adjusted to the correct torque as soon as possible with a torque-wrench...

Page 85

Check the fuel line for leaks, cracks, or mal- functions... If any problem is found, it should be repaired immediately by Yamaha dealer or other qualified mechanic...

Page 86

3) Remove the filter element, and wash it in solvent... Allow it to dry... Inspect the filter ele- ment and O-ring to make sure they are in good condition... Replace them if necessary...

Page 87

4) Reinstall the filter element in the cup... Make sure the O-ring in position in the cup... Firmly screw the cup onto the filter housing...

Page 88

NOTE: Correct idling-speed adjustment is only pos- sible if the engine is fully warmed-up... If not warmed up fully, the speed setting will tend to be too high... If you have difficulty obtaining the specified idle, consult a Yamaha dealer or other qual- ified mechanic...

followed by milk of magnesia, beaten egg, or vegetable oil... Get immediate medical attention... Batteries also generate explosive hydrogen gas; therefore, you should always follow these preventive mea- sures: 8 Charge batteries in a well-ventilated

Page 98

2) Keep the battery always in a good state of charge... Installing a voltmeter will help you monitor your battery... If you will not use the boat for a month or more, remove the battery from the boat and store it in a cool, dark place... Completely recharge the battery before using it...

Page 99

Connect the RED lead to the POSITIVE (+) terminal first... Then connect the BLACK lead to the NEGATIVE (-) terminal... 8 Using a single battery

Page 100

Use a connecting cable between the (-) terminals of the starting battery and accessory battery... See the illustrations of the wiring connections... This cable must be made from wire equivalent to the start- ing battery cable 3...

Page 101

3) With the engine off, turn on the water tap and let the water flush through the cooling passages for about 15 minutes... Turn off the water and dis- connect the garden hose 3...

Page 102

A clean hull improves boat performance... The boat bottom should be kept as clean of marine growths as possible... If neces- sary, the boat bottom can be coated with an anti-fouling paint approved for your area to inhibit marine growth... Do not use anti-fouling paint which includes copper or graphite... These paints can cause more rapid engine corrosion...
