The four-valve, two-cylinder, single overhead camshaft delivers sufficient torque in the low to mid speed ranges, delivering a highly responsive and smooth running performance.
Easy Start Decompression Device
For easy pull starting, this engine features an auto decompression device fitted to the camshaft. This system releases pressure in the cylinder when the manual pull start is engaged, allowing for light and convenient pull starting.
Ergonomic Carry and Control Handles
Large comfortable grips located on the front and back of the engine make carrying, mounting and removing the engine easier. The tiller handle folds neatly back to make the engine even more compact for carrying and storage.
Ergonomic Shift lever and Tiller Handle
The new, large and comfortable twist-grip throttle allows easy control of the engine, while the side-mounted shift selector provides added user convenience. Combined with the integrated kill switch and throttle cable, the tiller delivers superb handling and manoeuvrability.
Fresh Water Flushing System
Simply connect a hose to the easy access, front-mounted connector (optional) - to flush salt and dirt from the outboard without having to run the engine. Flushing the engine after each usage reduces corrosion and extends the engines life.
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.
Manual Tilt Shallow Water Drive
This engine features a three-step shallow water drive system, which is extremely useful for tackling Australia’s shallow rivers, estuaries, creeks and when coming to shore.
This engine features a one-piece outer cowling design with an intake air drain system, to efficiently drain away any water that enters the cowling during normal engine operation. Incoming air is routed through a labyrinth of passages that help trap and drain water before it enters the engine’s intake, for maximum reliability.
Exclusive to Yamaha, PrimeStart TM 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 or the need to ‘warm up’ your engine by revving it in neutral.
Rest Pad for Vertical Storage
The special rest-pads allow the engine to be laid down on its back vertically. Alternatively, you can lay the engine on its side.
