Before mounting or operating the outboard
motor, read this entire manual. Reading it
should give you an understanding of the
motor and its operation.
Before operating the boat, read any owner’s or operator’s manuals supplied with it
and all labels. Be sure you understand each
item before operating.
Do not overpower the boat with this outboard motor. Overpowering the boat could
result in loss of control. The rated power of
the outboard should be equal to or less than
●
●
the rated horsepower capacity of the boat.
If the rated horsepower capacity of the boat
is unknown, consult the dealer or boat manufacturer.
Do not modify the outboard. Modifications
could make the motor unfit or unsafe to use.
Incorrect propeller selection and incorrect
use may not only cause engine damage,
but also adversely affect fuel consumption.
Consult your dealer for correct use.
Never operate after drinking alcohol or taking drugs. About 50% of all boating fatalities
involve intoxication.
Have an approved personal flotation device
(PFD) on board for every occupant. It is a
good idea to wear a PFD whenever boating. At a minimum, children and non-swimmers should always wear PFDs, and
everyone should wear PFDs when there
are potentially hazardous boating conditions.
Gasoline is highly flammable, and its vapors are flammable and explosive. Handle
and store gasoline carefully. Make sure
there are no gas fumes or leaking fuel before starting the engine.
This product emits exhaust gases which
contain carbon monoxide, a colorless,
odorless gas which may cause brain damage or death when inhaled. Symptoms include nausea, dizziness, and drowsiness.
Keep cockpit and cabin areas well ventilated. Avoid blocking exhaust outlets.
Check throttle, shift, and steering for proper
operation before starting the engine.
Attach the engine stop switch lanyard cord
to a secure place on your clothing, or your
arm or leg while operating. If you accidentally leave the helm, the cord will pull from
the switch, stopping the engine.

General information
Know the marine laws and regulations
where you will be boating—and obey them.
For basic boating rules, see “Rules of the
road” on page 5.
● Stay informed about the weather. Check
weather forecasts before boating. Avoid
boating in hazardous weather.
● Tell someone where you are going: leave a
Float Plan with a responsible person. Be
sure to cancel the Float Plan when you return.
● Use common sense and good judgment
when boating. Know your abilities, and be
sure you understand how your boat handles under the different boating conditions
you may encounter. Operate within your
limits, and the limits of your boat. Always
operate at safe speeds, and keep a careful
watch for obstacles and other traffic.
● Always watch carefully for swimmers during
the engine operation.
● Stay away from swimming areas.
● When a swimmer is in the water near you
shift into neutral and shut off the engine.
● Do not illegally discard empty containers
used to replace or replenish oil. For the correct processing of empty containers, consult the dealer where you purchased the oil.
● When replacing oils used to lubricate the
product (engine or gear oil), be sure to wipe
away any spilt oil. Never pour oil without using a funnel or similar device. If necessary,
verify the necessary replacement procedure with the dealer.
● Never illegally discard (dump) the product.
Yamaha recommends consulting the dealer on discarding the product.

EMU25500
Basic boating rules (Rules of
the road)
Just as there are rules which apply when you
are driving on streets and high ways, there
are waterway rules which apply when you are
driving your boat. These rules are used internationally, and are also enforced by the United States Coast Guard and local agencies.
You should be aware of these rules, and follow them whenever you encounter another
vessel on the water.
Several sets of rules prevail according to geographic location, but are all basically the same
as the International Rules of the Road. The
rules presented here in your Owner’s Manual
are condensed, and have been provided for
your convenience only. Consult your local
U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary or Department of
Motor Vehicles for a complete set of rules
governing the waters in which you will be using your boat.
EMU25510
Steering and sailing rules and sound
signals
Whenever two vessels on the water meet one
another, one vessel has the right-of-way; it is
called the “stand-on” vessel. The vessel
which does not have the right-of-way is called
5
the “give-way” or “burdened” vessel. These
rules determine which vessel has the right-ofway, and what each vessel should do.
Stand-on vessel
The vessel with the right-of-way has the duty
to continue its course and speed, except to
avoid an immediate collision. When you maintain your direction and speed, the other vessel
will be able to determine how best to avoid
you.
Give-way vessel
The vessel which does not have the right-ofway has the duty to take positive and timely
action to stay out of the way of the Stand-On
vessel. Normally, you should not cross in front
of the vessel with the right-of-way. You should
slow down or change directions briefly and
pass behind the other vessel. You should always move in such a way that the operator of
the other vessel can see what you are doing.
“The general prudential rule”
This rule is called Rule 2 in the International
Rules and says,
“In obeying and construing these rules due regard shall be had to all dangers of navigation
and collision, and to any special circumstances, which may render a departure from the
above rules necessary in order to avoid immediate danger.”
In other words, follow the standard rules except when a collision will occur unless both
vessels try to avoid each other. If that is the
case, both vessels become “Give-Way” vessels.
EMU25520
Rules when encountering vessels
There are three main situations which you
may encounter with other vessels which could
lead to a collision unless the Steering Rules
are followed:
Meeting: (you are approaching another vessel head-on)
U63P14E0.book Page 6 Monday, June 6, 2005 4:57 PM
General information
Crossing: (you are traveling across the other
vessel’s path)
Overtaking: (you are passing or being
passed by another vessel)
In the following illustration, your boat is in the
center. You should give the right-of-way to
any vessels shown in white area (you are the
Give-Way vessel). Any vessels in the shaded
area must yield to you (they are the Give-Way
vessels). Both you and the meeting vessel
must alter course to avoid each other.
Meeting
If you are meeting another power vessel head
on, and are close enough to run the risk of collision, neither of you has the right-of-way!
Both of you should alter course to avoid an accident. You should keep the other vessel on
your port (left) side. This rule doesn’t apply if
both of you will clear one another if you continue on your set course and speed.
Crossing
When two power driven vessels are crossing
each other’s path close enough to run the risk
of collision, the vessel which has the other on
the starboard (right) side must keep out of the
way of the other. If the other vessel is on your
right, you must keep out of its way; you are the
Give-Way vessel. If the other vessel is on
your port (left) side, remember that you
should maintain course and direction, provided the other vessel gives you the right-of-way
as it should.
Overtaking
If you are passing another vessel, you are the
“Give-Way” vessel. This means that the other
vessel is expected to maintain its course and
speed. You must stay out of its way until you
are clear of it. Likewise, if another vessel is
passing you, you should maintain your speed
and direction so that the other vessel can
steer itself around you.
EMU25530
Other special situations
There are three other rules you should be
aware of when driving your boat around other
vessels.
Narrow channels and bends
When navigating in narrow channels, you
should keep to the right when it is safe and
practical to do so. If the operator of a powerdriven vessel is preparing to go around a
bend that may obstruct the view of other water
6
U63P14E0.book Page 7 Monday, June 6, 2005 4:57 PM
General information
vessels, the operator should sound a prolonged blast on the whistle (4 to 6 seconds). If
another vessel is around the bend, it too
should sound the whistle. Even if no reply is
heard, however, the vessel should still proceed around the bend with caution. If you navigate such waters with your boat, you will
need to carry a portable air horn, available
from local marine supply stores.
Fishing vessel right-of-way
All vessels which are fishing with nets, lines or
trawls are considered to be “fishing vessels”
under the International Rules. Vessels with
trolling lines are not considered fishing vessels. Fishing vessels have the right-of-way regardless of position. Fishing vessels cannot,
however, impede the passage of other vessels in narrow channels.
Sailing vessel right-of-way
Sailing vessels should normally be given the
right-of-way. The exceptions to this are:
1. When the sailing vessel is overtaking the
power-driven vessel, the power-driven
vessel has the right-of-way.
2. Sailing vessels should keep clear of any
fishing vessel.
3. In a narrow channel, a sailing vessel
should not hamper the safe passage of a
power-driven vessel which can navigate
only in such a channel.
Reading buoys and other markers
The waters of the United states are marked
for safe navigation by the lateral system of
buoyage. Simply put, buoys and markers
have an arrangement of shapes, colors, numbers and lights to show which side of the buoy
a boater should pass on when navigating in a
particular direction. The markings on these
buoys are oriented from the perspective of being entered from seaward (the boater is going
towards the port). This means that red buoys
are passed on the starboard (right) side when
7
proceeding from open water into port, and
black buoys are to port (left) side. When navigating out of port, your position with respect to
the buoys should be reversed; red buoys
should be to port and black buoys to starboard.
Many bodies of water used by boaters are entirely within the boundaries of a particular
state. The Uniform State Waterway Marking
System has been devised for these waters.
This system uses buoys and signs with distinctive shapes and colors to show regulatory
or advisory information. These markers are
white with black letters and orange boarders.
They signify speed zones, restricted areas,
danger areas, and general information.
Remember, markings may vary by geographic location. Always consult local boating authorities before driving your boat in unfamiliar
waters.

damage the motor. Engine speed depends on
the propeller size and boat load. If engine
speed is too high or too low for good engine
performance, this will have an adverse effect
on the engine.
Yamaha outboard motors are fitted with propellers chosen to perform well over a range of
applications, but there may be uses where a
propeller with a different pitch would be more
appropriate. For a greater operating load, a
smaller-pitch propeller is more suitable as it
enables the correct engine speed to be maintained. Conversely, a larger-pitch propeller is
more suitable for a smaller operating load.
Yamaha dealers stock a range of propellers,
and can advise you and install a propeller on
your outboard that is best suited to your application.
For electric start models, choose a battery
which meets the following specifications.

Propeller selection
The performance of your outboard motor will
be critically affected by your choice of propeller, as an incorrect choice could adversely affect performance and could also seriously
Select a propeller which will allow the engine
to reach the middle or upper half of the operating range at full throttle with the maximum
boat load. If operating conditions such as light
boat loads then allow the engine r/min to rise
above the maximum recommended range, reduce the throttle setting to maintain the engine in the proper operating range.

Fuel consumption varies greatly with boat
design, weight, propeller used, engine trim
angle, sea conditions (including wind), and
throttle position. Fuel consumption also varies slightly with the type of water (salt, fresh,
and contaminate levels), air temperature
and humidity, cleanliness of the boat bottom, engine mounting height, skill of the operator, and individual gasoline formulation
(winter or summer fuel and amount of additives).
The Yamaha digital speedometer and fuel
management meter calculates speed,
miles traveled, and fuel economy by water
movement at the stern of the boat. This distance can vary greatly from the actual distance traveled because of water currents,
sea swells, and the condition of the water
speed sensor (partially plugged or damaged).
Individual engines may slightly vary in their
fuel consumption due to manufacturing
variations. These variations can be even
greater if the engines are of different year
models. In addition, variations in propellers,

CAUTION:
Incorrect engine height or obstructions to

while the boat is cruising. Severe engine
damage may result if the motor is operated continuously in the presence of airborne water spray.
NOTE:
During water testing check the buoyancy of
the boat, at rest, with its maximum load.
Check that the static water level on the exhaust housing is low enough to prevent water
entry into the powerhead, when water rises
due to waves when the outboard is not running.
EMU26910
WARNING
Improper mounting of the outboard motor
could result in hazardous conditions such
as poor handling, loss of control, or fire
hazards. Observe the following:
● For permanently mounted models, your
dealer or other person experienced in
proper rigging should mount the motor.
If you are mounting the motor yourself,
you should be trained by an experienced
person.
● For portable models, your dealer or other person experienced in proper outboard motor mounting should show you
how to mount your motor.
Mount the outboard motor on the center line
(keel line) of the boat, and ensure that the
boat itself is well balanced. Otherwise the
boat will be hard to steer. For boats without a
keel or which are asymmetrical, consult your
dealer.

Mounting height (boat bottom)
To run your boat at optimum efficiency, the
water resistance (drag) of the boat and outboard motor must be made as little as possible. The mounting height of the outboard
motor greatly affects the water resistance. If
the mounting height is too high, cavitation
tends to occur, thus reducing the propulsion;
and if the propeller tips cut the air, the engine
speed will rise abnormally and cause the engine to overheat. If the mounting height is too
low, the water resistance will increase and
thereby reduce engine efficiency. Mount the
outboard motor so that the anti-cavitation
plate is in alignment with the bottom of the
boat.
ZMU01762
The optimum mounting height of the outboard motor is affected by the boat/motor
combination and the desired use. Test runs
at different heights can help determine the
optimum mounting height. Consult your
Yamaha dealer or boat manufacturer for
further information on determining the proper mounting height.
For instructions on setting the trim angle of
the outboard motor, see page 34.
EMU30172
Breaking in engine
Your new engine requires a period of break-in
to allow mating surfaces of moving parts to
wear in evenly. Correct break-in will help ensure proper performance and longer engine
life.

CAUTION:
Failure to follow the break-in procedure
could result in reduced engine life or even
severe engine damage.
EMU27080
Procedure for 4-stroke models

Ring Free Fuel Additive
Gasoline is a precise blend of many different
substances, each chosen to give certain characteristics. Gasoline blends have been
changing in recent years in response to concerns about pollution and resulting emissions
regulations. One of the most obvious changes
has been the elimination of lead from most fuels.
As gasoline has changed, the amount of additives such as aromatics and oxygenates has
increased. These additives are important for
the engines in passenger cars, but they can
have detrimental effects in marine engines,
because of increased deposits in the combustion chamber. When enough deposits collect,
piston rings begin sticking. Performance
drops and engine wear increases dramatically.
While many additives available may reduce
deposits, Yamaha recommends the use of
Ring Free Fuel Additive, available from your
Yamaha dealer. Ring Free Fuel Additive
has repeatedly proven its ability to clean combustion deposits from inside the engine, notably the critical piston-ring-land area, and fuel
system components. Follow product labeling
for use instructions.

This product emits exhaust gases which
contain carbon monoxide, a colorless,
odorless gas which could cause brain
damage or death when inhaled. Symptoms include nausea, dizziness, and
drowsiness. Keep cockpit and cabin areas well ventilated. Avoid blocking exhaust outlets.
If there is an air vent screw on the fuel
tank cap, loosen it 2 or 3 turns.
If there is a fuel joint or a fuel cock on the

Trimming outboard motor
The trim angle of the outboard motor helps
determine the position of the bow of the boat
in the water. Correct trim angle will help improve performance and fuel economy while
reducing strain on the engine. Correct trim angle depends upon the combination of boat,
34
U63P14E0.book Page 35 Monday, June 6, 2005 4:57 PM

engine, and propeller. Correct trim is also affected by variables such as the load in the
boat, sea conditions, and running speed.

●
Use the power tilt switch located on the
bottom engine cowling (if equipped)
only when the boat is at a complete stop

WARNING
Excessive trim for the operating conditions (either trim up or trim down) can
cause boat instability and can make steering the boat more difficult. This increases
the possibility of an accident. If the boat
begins to feel unstable or is hard to steer,
slow down and/or readjust the trim angle.

EMU27911
Adjusting boat trim
When the boat is on plane, a bow-up attitude
results in less drag, greater stability and efficiency. This is generally when the keel line of
the boat is up about 3 to 5 degrees. With the
bow up, the boat may have a greater tendency to steer to one side or the other. Compensate for this as you steer. The trim tab can
also be adjusted to help offset this effect.
When the bow of the boat is down, it is easier
to accelerate from a standing start onto plane.
Bow Down
Too much trim-in causes the boat to “plow”
through the water, decreasing fuel economy
and making it hard to increase speed. Operating with excessive trim-in at higher speeds
also makes the boat unstable. Resistance at
the bow is greatly increased, heightening the
danger of “bow steering” and making operation difficult and dangerous.
NOTE:
Bow Up
Too much trim-out puts the bow of the boat
too high in the water. Performance and economy are decreased because the hull of the
boat is pushing the water and there is more air
drag. Excessive trim-out can also cause the
propeller to ventilate, which reduces performance further, and the boat may “porpoise”
(hop in the water), which could throw the operator and passengers overboard.
Depending on the type of boat, the outboard
motor trim angle may have little effect on the
trim of the boat when operating.
EMU27933
Tilting up and down
If the engine will be stopped for some time or
if the boat is moored in shallows, the outboard

The spark plug is an important engine component and is easy to inspect. The condition of
the spark plug can indicate something about
the condition of the engine. For example, if the
center electrode porcelain is very white, this
could indicate an intake air leak or carburetion
problem in that cylinder. Do not attempt to diagnose any problems yourself. Instead, take
the outboard motor to a Yamaha dealer. You
should periodically remove and inspect the
