Answers to some of your Yamaha Marine products questions
Your selling Yamaha dealership will register or transfer ownership of the Yamaha outboard(s) into your name.
New outboard motor warranty registrations must be completed by an authorized Yamaha dealership. Only a Yamaha dealer may perform the factory-specified Pre-delivery Inspection, which is a requirement for engine warranty registration. This inspection checks many important items, including that the engine(s) were rigged and are operating correctly. A Yamaha dealer is also in the best position to provide you with an explanation of operation and maintenance procedures.
If you purchase your Yamaha outboard(s) from a non-Yamaha dealership or from an individual, then contact your local Yamaha dealership for warranty registration or transfer of ownership. A Yamaha authorized dealership will need to evaluate the outboard(s) to verify that they are in normal running condition. There may be a charge for these services.
If you are having a problem with your registration or ownership transfer, or if you would like verification of warranty coverage, please contact the Yamaha Outboard Customer Support line at (866) 894-1626.
To verify warranty coverage, including the expiration date, you need your outboard’s Primary Identification number (PID #). Click here for information on how to find your PID #. By providing this number, you can ask any Yamaha outboard dealer to verify your warranty through their online dealer systems. You can also contact Marine Customer Support at (866) 894-1626 for verbal confirmation.
If you want to know if a particular problem is covered by the limited warranty, an authorized Yamaha dealer will need to diagnose the cause of the problem. If your dealer determines that the problem is due to a covered defect in materials, parts, or workmanship from the factory as spelled out in your outboard’s limited warranty statement, then warranty coverage can be provided.
The length of your limited warranty depends on model and type of use.
2.5hp – 350hp (F350 models A & B only) – 3-year limited warranty
XF425 & F350C – 5-year limited warranty
Commercial & Rental Use:
All four-stroke models – 1 year limited warranty.
