Read on to discover more about the exciting world of Yamaha.

A Yamaha Outboard. Sheer Turnkey Pleasure.

The Yamaha Difference Yamaha's 4-stroke technology It's Difference Number One! A Yamaha 4-stroke seems to think it's a 2-stroke! That's because in recent years, our driving ambition in outboard design has been to combine the lightness and compactness of the incredibly reliable, high performance 2-strokes that made us so famous, with the superior economy, smoothness, sophistication and environment-friendliness of 4-stroke engine technology. It's been an elusive goal, but those years of intensive research and on-water testing truly bore fruit. The Yamaha Four Stroke line-up now offers the previously impossible: A complete range of 4-stroke engines, all of which are comparable in weight and size to 2-stroke outboards in the same power class.

There are a great many exciting and exclusive features which set a Yamaha apart from every other brand, and which have helped create the unique Yamaha reputation for user-friendly performance and turnkey reliability. Whilst it is impossible to list them all, particularly in the detail required for the more technically advanced or specialist types of engine, the following pages offer a brief summary of the more important and helpful features, many of which are to be found on most Yamaha outboards; they are the special ingredients which add up to create the Yamaha Difference! To see whether your chosen model includes a particular feature, please refer to the individual engine descriptions or the specification charts on pages 28 - 31.

So how did Yamaha's engineers achieve this? Purely and simply by innovating: look at our Four Stroke range and you'll see technologies like CDI ignition, advanced EFI (Electronic Fuel Injection) systems, revolutionary engine layouts, ingenious intake and exhaust systems ‌ even VCT (Variable Camshaft Timing). Overseeing all this is a ruthlessly efficient system of micro-computer control, monitoring every aspect - from fuel mix - to combustion efficiency - to maintenance scheduling; it's no accident that a Yamaha Four Stroke outboard holds the world record for fuel economy. Above all, Yamaha's 4-strokes succeed so admirably because from the very start, we never tried to adapt ordinary, everyday automotive engines, as most others have done. We built only pure marine-specification 4-stroke engines from scratch: every cubic centimetre, inside and out, designed with on-water performance in mind and dedicated to your on-water pleasure!


The Yamaha Difference

Micro-computer ECM (Engine Control Module) Standard on most Yamaha models. The ECM is a very sophisticated, yet reliable microcomputer which is the 'brain' behind so many of the functions that make Yamaha such a reliable, userfriendly outboard.

'Start-in-gear' Protection

CDI/TCI Ignition Systems

Standard on every Yamaha.

Standard on every Yamaha.

'Start-in-gear' protection prevents the engine being started when Forward or Reverse is selected. On Manual Start models, setting any gear other than Neutral will cause the recoil starter to lock. On Electric Start versions, the power supply to the starter motor is isolated unless Neutral is selected.

• Reliable and easy starting • Strong, steady spark generation at all speeds • Consistency of spark allows longer plug life • Maintenance free system

In fact, the ECM monitors and controls a variety of functions and features, depending on the model, and is responsible for everything from running the ignition timing and controlling PrimeStart™, to activating the many warning and protection systems that look after the engine and the user. In reality, it is almost the 'heart' of a Yamaha as well as the 'brain'. On all models from 50hp upwards, a simple hook-up to a laptop computer via the convenient access port, allows instant engine diagnosis, on the spot. Now that's real progress! • • • • •

Constant monitoring of all data inputs and settings Maintains smooth running, trouble-free performance Advanced software optimises ignition timing in all conditions Monitors and activates warning and protection systems Computer engine diagnosis on all models 50hp and above

Yamaha's CDI and TCI ignition systems are 'solid state' components, with no moving parts. This plays an important role in creating the remarkable record of easy starting, reliability and faultless performance for which Yamaha outboards are well known around the world.

Warning Systems for engine protection and safety Standard on every Yamaha.

PrimeStart™ Exclusive to Yamaha, the PrimeStart™ Auto-choke feature is standard on many models. As easy as starting your car, it enables the driver to start an engine from cold by simply turning the key! The system eliminates the need for a conventional choke and controls the 'warming up' process automatically. So there's no longer any need to 'warm up' by revving the engine in neutral.

All Yamaha outboards feature comprehensive monitoring of major functions, such as oil level, engine overheat or over-rev. There are various warning devices fitted to alert the user, including cowling-mounted lamps, instrument lamps, and buzzers.

Buzzer Low oil pressure Warning lamp

Overheat Warning lamp

In the unlikely event of a problem, the system will automatically reduce the available engine rpm, providing maximum protection for the engine while the fault exists, and allowing the best opportunity to get the boat back to shore without damage.

Wide Range Power Trim & Tilt

Shallow Water Drive

Fresh Water Flushing System

Standard (or available as an option) on most models 20hp and above.

Standard on most Yamaha models.

Standard on all models 6hp and above.

Yamaha's compact and light, yet powerful PT & T system is the envy of the industry. Quick response from the convenient push-button control makes trim and tilt very smooth and easy, and the -4° to +16° position range enables the driver to get the best possible performance from the hull in all conditions. The negative trim setting (-4°) improves acceleration Tilt up and brings the boat onto the plane more quickly.

• Enables boat to be operated safely in shallow water • Protects propeller and allows manoeuvring close inshore

Another user-friendly and simple idea from the Yamaha engineers! Just connect a garden hose to the easyaccess, front-mounted connector and flush away the salt and other dirt that accumulates in the engine waterways. Obviously it helps reduce any corrosion and extends the life of the engine still further. And there's no need to even start the engine to carry out this simple maintenance procedure. • Reduces corrosion and extends engine life • Convenient, simple connection and operation • Flush with no need to start or run the engine

A unique operating advantage that's exclusive to Yamaha. The Autolube system not only eliminates the need to premix oil and fuel, but reduces running and maintenance cost by more efficient control of the oil/fuel mix during combustion.

Counter-rotating Propeller Models FL115 • FL150 • FL200 • FL225 • FL250 • ZL150 • ZL200 • ZL250 • ZL300


A standard twin engine installation (with both propellers turning clockwise) will always 'pull' the boat towards the port side, making it more difficult to steer, especially at higher speeds. To solve this problem, Yamaha offers certain models with a counter-rotating propeller, which when fitted alongside a standard model, delivers perfect 'neutral helm' steering control.

The oil pump responds to both throttle opening and engine rpm, to inject the precise amount of oil required for all running conditions. And Multipoint™ means exactly what it says - the unique Yamaha system injects the oil at multiple points directly into the manifold, AFTER the fuel has passed the carburettor. This is a cleaner, more efficient mixing system that prevents any clogging or oil build-up.

Yamaha's Ideal Anti-corrosion Protection As a result of Yamaha's years of dedicated research, development and sheer on-the-water experience, every Yamaha owner can now enjoy the benefits of the most comprehensive and well-proven coating and protection system ever devised for an outboard. Or come to that, for a marine engine of any kind.

Digital Instruments and new Digital Network Gauges Digital instrumentation is available on many Yamaha outboards, either as standard, or as an optional accessory. Designed for optimal visibility and long term durability, these instruments provide accurate information to help achieve the best overall performance and efficiency from the engine. Three instruments are available: a Multifunction Tachometer that displays engine rpm, engine hours, trim angle, oil level and warning lamps; a Multifunction Speedometer that displays speed, trip, time, fuel and battery voltage; and a Fuel Management Gauge that monitors fuel consumption and fuel economy. For 2007 models with EFI (Electronic Fuel Injection) or HPDI fuel systems, an exciting new range of Digital Network Gauges, which work together with a new and sophisticated Local Area Network (LAN) system has been launched. See Page 26 for more information about this super-accurate, easy-to-read, simple-toinstall instrumentation.

High quality stainless steel* Anti-corrosive stainless steel is used for many components such as drive and prop shafts, steering arms and through tubes.


5-Stage exterior coating

This unique anti-corrosion aluminium alloy, developed by Yamaha, has proven itself to be the most effective material for the protection of exterior engine components.

A build-up sequence of tough primers, undercoats and acrylic resin coatings are sealed in (but only after being oven-baked for ultimate adhesion and hardness) by the final coat of clear urethane lacquer which gives a Yamaha its unique lustre and long-lasting gloss finish.

Self-sacrificing anodes* Large, but unobtrusive anodes are fitted in carefully calculated positions on engine casings, mounting brackets and lower units, and also inside the engine block and waterways of some models. The combination of high grade alloys from which these anodes are made, work together to ensure that the effects of saltwater are minimised and controlled as far as possible.

07 Special zinc coating An additional zinc coating is applied to all non-moving stainless steel parts. This increases resistance to galvanic corrosion and acts as an anode back-up. * Depends on model. Please consult your dealer.
