996cc 4-Cylinder Marine Engine
The 1.0 litre, eight-valve, single-overhead camshaft, four-cylinder, long stroke design delivers ultra-smooth, useable power with low noise and vibration levels.
Large Single Throttle Valve
Air flow is precisely delivered to all four cylinders based on the demands of the driver and combustion conditions. The air is pulse-tuned, before it reaches the injectors of the EFI system which promotes a clean and efficient burn for maximum economy and power.
Variable Trolling Control
Yamaha’s variable trolling control allows you to precisely adjust the engine’s idling speed from 650 to 900 RPM in 50 RPM increments. The ability to finely tune the trolling speed allows fisherman to perfect their lure presentation when chasing different species of fish.
Exclusive to Yamaha, Prime Start makes starting a Yamaha outboard as easy as starting a car. It allows the engine to be started cold by automatically controlling the engine ‘warming up’ process - eliminating the need for a conventional choke. You no longer need to ‘warm up’ your engine by revving it in neutral.
Power Trim and Tilt
Yamaha’s push-button trim control makes engine trim and tilt adjustments quick, smooth and easy, across a wide trim range. The negative trim settings allow for improved acceleration and the ability to bring the boat onto the plane more quickly.
Electronic Fuel Injection
The Multi-Point Electronic Fuel Injection (EFI) system, injects the right amount of fuel into the combustion chamber at the optimum timing. This system takes into account engine speed and load requirements to achieve maximum engine performance including ‘first-time, every-time’ hot and cold starting.
Fresh Water Flushing System
Simply connect a hose to the easy access connector to flush salt and dirt from the outboard without having to run the engine. Flushing the engine after each use reduces corrosion and extends the engines life.
A 12-Volt 16-Amp high-output alternator ensures that power is always available to start the engine, even after long periods of idling or running at low revs. This not only provides extra starting power, but delivers sufficient power to run the wide array of on-board electronic devices used in modern boating.
Labyrinth Exhaust System
Yamaha’s proven labyrinth exhaust system reduces engine noise at low RPM and idle. A water sealed outer wall around the exhaust muffler effectively reduces exhaust tone for whisper quiet operation and enhances cooling which protects the exhaust system against corrosion.
