2800cc Four-Cylinder Engine
The 16 valve, 2.8 litre, double overhead camshaft (DOHC) layout with its increased cylinder capacity and large valves, results in optimum valve actuation, resulting in improved valve timing, acceleration and overall running performance.
Digital Network Gauges
This engine is compatible with Yamaha's Digital Network Gauges, including the top-of-the-line Command Link Plus system, giving you the information needed to maximise engine performance and efficiency. This engine is also NMEA2000 compatible with third party multi-function displays, GPS and fish finders.
The direct ignition system, with plug cap and ignition coil, provides higher reliability and increased performance.
Electronic Throttle Valve
The electronic throttle valve provides sure and more precise valve opening and closing according to each engine temperature and atmospheric condition. This system works in tune with the fuel injection and ignition systems, to deliver incredible response and exceptional fuel economy.
High Output Alternator
This alternator delivers more power: 50 amps at wide open throttle, producing a full 22 amps at only 600 rpm which means there is sufficient output to keep charging the battery even at low RPM.
The crankshaft design is offset 10mm from the centre of cylinder for more efficient transfer of power to the crankshaft.
Shift Dampener System
Yamaha's Shift Dampener System (SDS) propellers greatly reduce the noise associated with shifting an engine in and out of gear by absorbing the forces generated when forward and reverse gears are engaged.
Variable Camshaft Timing
The Variable Camshaft Timing (VCT) advances and retards the camshaft timing according to the engine RPMs. This in combination with the electronically controlled single throttle valve system and long intake manifold boosts low and mid-range torque for optimum acceleration.
Variable Trolling Control
Yamaha’s variable trolling control allows the skipper 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.
