Maintenance Matters® A Simple Guide for the longevity of your Outboard


Why Maintenance?
From their painstaking design to their meticulous construction, Yamaha outboards are manufactured to provide you with years of enjoyment.
But high load, high-RPM operation, extreme temperatures and humidity, saltwater, sun, even long periods of non-use can all exact a heavy toll. Regular maintenance is important in helping your outboard meet the demands of these challenging environments, and only you can make sure it happens.
