Can never go wrong with a yamaha!

I have had 3 and not a single problem!

Just make sure you follow the break in procedures closely as the high performance engines have very tight tolerances now a days.

one word!!!

 

 

BULLETPROOF!!!!!

 

 

 

like the old saying

 

If you want to get to your fishing spot fast buy a merc, If you want to come home at the end of the day buy a yamaha!!!

 

 

it is true I guess, i had a yammie on my skeeter and never touched the thing for 8 years and ran like a top never left me stranded, I upgraded hp and could not refuse the deal I got on a merc and in the second year I had a couple of small issues(but it also never left me stranded) just kinda a pain in the ass

 

IMO the quality of a yamaha made by (tohatsu) japan is better than most including merc, beefier lower unit and other parts

 

mind you the powerhead on my engine mercury is a yamaha design (tohatsu)believe it or not. not until you get above 115hp they are true merc's designed in the u.s.a everything under is just painted black and slap on a merc sticker, they just outsourced the engine development and production

 

think of it as dodge cars and vans with a mitsubishi engine

the V6 Yamahas are far away from Bulletproof,especially the HPDI both it and the carbed V6s 200-250 have more than there share of issues ,have a look on some of the big US fishing forums where guys run these day in day out,nothing bad can be said for Yamahas small-mid size engines thou they are drop dead reliable both 2 and 4 stroke

Yamaha is a nice engine. You can't go wrong with it :)

Interesting. Are you sure? Yamaha-Mariner, Evenrude-Suzuki and Nissan-Tohatsu. I did not hear about Yamaha-Tohatsu combinations.
