INTRODUCTION
EBU17240
Congratulations on your purchase of the Yamaha YFM80GW. This ATV represents the result of many years
of Yamaha experience in the production of fine sporting, touring, and pacesetting racing machines. With the
purchase of this Yamaha, you can now appreciate the high degree of craftsmanship and reliability that have
made Yamaha a leader in these fields.
This manual will provide you with a good basic understanding of the features and operation of this ATV.
This manual includes important safety information. It provides information about special techniques and skills necessary to ride the ATV. It also includes basic maintenance and inspection procedures. If you have any questions regarding the operation or maintenance of your ATV, please consult a
Yamaha dealer.
AN IMPORTANT SAFETY MESSAGE:
READ THIS MANUAL TOGETHER WITH TIPS FOR THE ATV RIDER CAREFULLY AND COMPLETELY BEFORE OPERATING YOUR ATV. MAKE SURE YOU UNDERSTAND ALL INSTRUCTIONS.
● PAY CLOSE ATTENTION TO THE WARNING AND CAUTION LABELS ON THE ATV.
● NEVER OPERATE AN ATV WITHOUT PROPER TRAINING OR INSTRUCTION. FREE TRAINING IS
AVAILABLE TO ANYONE WHO BUYS A NEW ATV. CALL 1-800-887-2887 FOR MORE INFORMATION.
● THIS ATV, AND ANY OTHER ATV OVER 70 cc, SHOULD NOT BE OPERATED BY A CHILD UNDER
12 YEARS OF AGE.
●
AN IMPORTANT NOTE TO PARENTS:
This ATV is not a toy. Before you let your child ride this ATV, you should understand the instructions and
warnings in this Owner’s Manual. Then be sure your child understands and will follow them. Children differ
in skills, physical abilities and judgment. Some children may not be able to operate an ATV safely. Parents
should supervise their child’s use of the ATV at all times. Parents should permit continued use only if they
determine that the child has the ability to operate the ATV safely.
Your ATV was delivered with an adjustable speed limiter and also with an air intake restrictor plate. Yamaha
recommends that all beginners start off with the speed limiter screw turned in and the air intake restrictor
plate installed to limit the amount of speed available while they learn. The limiter screw may be gradually
turned out to increase maximum speed as the beginner becomes more familiar with operating the ATV. Parents should decide when to adjust the ATV for more power as their youngster’s riding skills improve. Once
the ATV rider can operate with skill at the top speed permitted by adjusting the speed limiter alone, the air
intake restrictor plate can be removed. Since removal of this plate will result in a significant increase in power, turn the speed limiter back in again; adjust it out in stages as you did before.
If your child is a beginner or is inexperienced, he or she should take a training course. See the previous
page for information about the free training available to purchasers of new ATVs.

riding on hills or over obstacles, if you fail to take
proper precautions.
SEVERE INJURY OR DEATH can result if you do
not follow these instructions:
● Read this manual and all labels carefully and follow the operating procedures described.
● Never operate an ATV without proper training or
instruction. Take a Training Course. Beginners
should receive training from a certified instructor. Contact an authorized ATV dealer or call 1800-887-2887 to find out about the training
courses nearest you.
● Always follow the age recommendation:
– A child under 12 years old should never oper-

ate an ATV with engine size greater than 70 cc.
– A child under 16 years old should never operate an ATV with engine size greater than 90 cc.
Never allow a child under age 16 to operate an
ATV without adult supervision, and never allow
continued use of an ATV by a child if he or she
does not have the abilities to operate it safely.
Never carry a passenger on an ATV.
Always avoid operating an ATV on any paved
surfaces, including sidewalks, driveways, parking lots and streets.
Never operate an ATV on any public street, road
or highway, even a dirt or gravel one.
Never operate an ATV without wearing an approved motorcycle helmet that fits properly. You
should also wear eye protection (goggles or face
shield), gloves, boots, a long-sleeved shirt or a
jacket, and long pants.
Never consume alcohol or drugs before or while
operating this ATV.
Never operate at speeds too fast for your skills

or the riding conditions. Always go at a speed
that is proper for the terrain, visibility, operating
conditions, and your experience.
Never attempt wheelies, jumps, or other stunts.
Always inspect your ATV each time you use it to
make sure it is in safe operating condition. Always follow the inspection and maintenance
procedures and schedules described in this
manual.
Always keep both hands on the handlebars and
both feet on the footrests of the ATV during operation.
Always go slowly and be extra careful when operating on unfamiliar terrain. Always be alert to
changing terrain conditions when operating the
ATV.
Never operate on excessively rough, slippery or
loose terrain until you have learned and practiced the skills necessary to control the ATV on
such terrain. Always be especially cautious on
these kinds of terrain.
Always follow proper procedures for turning as
described in this manual. Practice turning at low
speeds before attempting to turn at faster
speeds and never turn at excessive speeds.
Never operate the ATV on hills too steep for the
●
●
●

ATV or for your abilities. Practice on smaller hills
before attempting larger hills.
Always follow proper procedures for climbing
hills as described in this manual. Check the terrain carefully before you start up any hill. Never
climb hills with excessively slippery or loose surfaces. Shift your weight forward. Never open the
throttle suddenly or make sudden gear changes.
Never go over the top of a hill at high speed.
Always follow proper procedures for going down
hills and for braking on hills as described in this
manual. Check the terrain carefully before you
start down any hill. Shift your weight backward.
Never go down a hill at high speed. Avoid going
down a hill at an angle that would cause the vehicle to lean sharply to one side. Go straight
down the hill where possible.
Always follow proper procedures for crossing
the side of a hill as described in this manual.
Avoid hills with excessively slippery or loose surfaces. Shift your weight to the uphill side of the
ATV. Never attempt to turn the ATV around on
any hill until you have mastered the turning technique described in this manual on level ground.
Avoid crossing the side of a steep hill if possible.
Always use proper procedures if you stall or roll

backwards when climbing a hill. To avoid stalling, use the proper gear and maintain a steady
speed when climbing a hill. If you stall or roll
backwards, follow the special procedure for
braking described in this manual. Dismount on
the uphill side or to a side if pointed straight uphill. Turn the ATV around and remount, following
the procedure described in this manual.
Always check for obstacles before operating in a
new area.
Never attempt to operate over large obstacles,
such as large rocks or fallen trees. Always follow
proper procedures when operating over obstacles as described in this manual.
Always be careful when skidding or sliding.
Learn to safely control skidding or sliding by
practicing at low speeds and on level, smooth
terrain. On extremely slippery surfaces, such as
ice, go slowly and be very cautious in order to reduce the chance of skidding or sliding out of control.
Never operate an ATV in fast flowing water or in
water deeper than that recommended in this
manual. Remember that wet brakes may have
reduced stopping ability. Test your brakes after
leaving water. If necessary, apply them several
times to let friction dry out the linings.
Always use the size and type of tires specified in
this manual.
● Always maintain proper tire pressure as described in this manual.
● Never modify an ATV through improper installation or use of accessories.
● Never exceed the stated load capacity for an
ATV. Cargo should be properly distributed and
securely attached. Reduce speed and follow instructions in this manual for carrying cargo or
pulling a trailer. Allow greater distance for braking.

There are two types of gasohol: gasohol containing ethanol and that containing methanol. Gasohol
containing ethanol can be used if the ethanol content does not exceed 10%. Gasohol containing
methanol is not recommended by Yamaha because it can cause damage to the fuel system or
ATV performance problems.

WARNING
There is never a more important period in the life of
your engine than the first 20 hours of riding. For
this reason, you should read the following material
carefully.
Since the engine is brand new, do not put an excessive load on it for the first 20 hours. The various
parts in the engine wear and polish themselves to
the correct operating clearances. During this period, prolonged full-throttle operation or any condition that might result in engine overheating must
be avoided.
POTENTIAL HAZARD
Engaging a lower gear when the engine
speed is too high.
WHAT CAN HAPPEN
The wheels could stop rotating and lose traction. This could cause loss of control, an accident and injury. It could also cause engine
or drive train damage.
HOW TO AVOID THE HAZARD
Make sure the engine has sufficiently slowed
before shifting to a lower gear.
0–10 hours
Avoid prolonged operation above 1/2 throttle. Vary
the speed of the ATV regularly. Do not operate it at
one set throttle position.

Accessories
Accessories can affect the handling and control of
your ATV. Keep the following in mind when considering an accessory or operating an ATV which has
accessories.
● Choose only accessories designed for your
ATV. Your Yamaha dealer has a variety of genuine Yamaha accessories. Other accessories
may also be available on the market. However,
it is not possible for Yamaha to test all nonYamaha accessories, nor control over their quality or suitability. Choose a genuine Yamaha accessory, or one that is equivalent in design and
quality.
● Accessories should be rigidly and securely
mounted. An accessory which can shift position
or come off while you are riding could affect your
ability to control the ATV.
● Do not mount an accessory where it could interfere with your ability to control the ATV. Examples include (but are not limited to) a heavy or
bulky object attached to the handlebars which
could make steering difficult, an accessory that

Loading
As originally equipped, this ATV is not designed to
tow a trailer. If you choose to add accessories so
that you can tow a trailer, you must use common
sense and good judgment as the stability and handling of an ATV can be changed. When adding accessories, keep the following points in mind:
● Never exceed the weight limits shown. An overloaded ATV can be unstable.

●
●
If you are carrying cargo and towing a trailer, include the tongue weight in the maximum ATV
load limit.

Load cargo on the carrier as close to the center
of the ATV as possible. Put cargo at the front of
the carrier and center it.
Tie down cargo securely to the carrier. Make
sure cargo in the trailer cannot move around. A
shifting load can cause an accident.
Make sure the load does not interfere with controls or your ability to see where you are going.
Ride more slowly than you would without a load.
The more weight you carry, the slower you
should go. Although conditions vary, it is good
practice not to exceed 2nd gear whenever you
are carrying heavier loads or when towing a trailer.
Allow more braking distance. A heavier ATV
takes longer to stop.
Avoid making sharp turns unless at very slow
speeds.
Avoid hills and rough terrain. Choose terrain
carefully. Added weight affects the stability and
handling of the ATV.

the maximum. Turning in the adjusting screw limits
the maximum engine power available and decreases the maximum speed of the ATV. Turning
in the adjusting screw decreases top speed, and
turning it out increases top speed. (See page 4-4.)
This model also has an air intake restrictor plate to
limit the amount of engine power available.
Yamaha recommends that all beginning riders
start off with the speed limiter turned in and the air
intake restrictor plate installed to limit the amount
of speed available while they learn. The limiter may
be gradually adjusted to increase maximum speed
as the beginner becomes more familiar with operating the ATV. Parents should decide when to adjust the ATV for more power as their youngster’s
riding skills improve. Once the ATV rider can operate with skill at the top speed permitted by adjusting the speed limiter alone, the air intake restrictor
plate can be removed. Since removal of this plate
will result in a significant increase in power, turn
the speed limiter back in again; adjust it out in stages as you did before.
Adjusting for maximum throttle lever movement
without removing the air intake restrictor plate will
cause the engine to run roughly at higher speeds.

do not allow skin or clothing to come in contact with
these components.
With the engine idling, lift the shift pedal to the 1st
gear position and then release the parking brake.
Apply the throttle slowly and smoothly. The centrifugal clutch will engage and you will start to accelerate. Once the ATV has attained adequate
speed, release the throttle and lift the shift pedal to
the 2nd gear position. Release the shift pedal and
apply the throttle smoothly. Use this same procedure as you move into the higher gears. Be sure to
coordinate the use of the throttle and shift pedal
properly. If the throttle is applied too abruptly or if
the throttle is not released during shifting, or if the
shift pedal is not released before applying the
throttle, the front wheels may lift off the ground, resulting in a loss of directional control. Avoid higher
speeds until you are thoroughly familiar with the
operation of your ATV.
When slowing down or stopping, release the throttle and apply the brakes smoothly and evenly. As
you slow down, shift to a lower gear. Be sure that
the engine has sufficiently slowed before engaging
a lower gear. Improper use of the brakes or shifting
can cause the tires to lose traction, reducing control and increasing the possibility of an accident.

many times in a large off-road area with no obstacles. If an incorrect technique is used, your ATV
may continue to go straight. If the ATV doesn’t
turn, come to a stop and then practice the procedure again. If the riding surface is slippery or loose,
it may help to position more of your weight over the
front wheels by moving forward on the seat.
As you approach a curve, slow down and begin to
turn the handlebars in the desired direction. As you
do so, put your weight on the footboard to the outside of the turn (opposite your desired direction)
and lean your upper body into the turn. Use the

Improper riding procedures such as abrupt throttle
changes, excessive braking, incorrect body movements, or too much speed for the sharpness of the
turn may cause the ATV to tip. If the ATV begins to
tip over to the outside while negotiating a turn, lean
more to the inside. It may also be necessary to
gradually let off on the throttle and steer to the outside of the turn to avoid tipping over.
Remember: Avoid higher speeds until you are
thoroughly familiar with the operation of your ATV.
WHAT CAN HAPPEN
The ATV can overturn more easily on extremely steep hills than on level surfaces or
small hills.
HOW TO AVOID THE HAZARD
Never operate the ATV on hills too steep for
the ATV or for your abilities. Practice on
smaller hills before attempting large hills.
It is important when climbing a hill to make sure
that your weight is transferred forward on the ATV.
This can be accomplished by leaning forward and,
on steeper inclines, standing on the footboards
and leaning forward over the handlebars.
CLIMBING UPHILL
Use proper riding techniques to avoid ATV overturns on hills. Be sure that you can maneuver your
ATV well on flat ground before attempting any incline and then practice riding first on gentle slopes.
Try more difficult climbs only after you have developed your skill. In all cases avoid inclines with slippery or loose surfaces, or obstacles that might
cause you to lose control.

HOW TO AVOID THE HAZARD
Before operating in a new area, check for obstacles.
Never attempt to ride over large obstacles,
such as large rocks or fallen trees. When you
go over obstacles, always follow proper procedures as described in the Owner’s Manual.
If the rear wheels of your ATV start to slide sideways, control can usually be regained (if there is
room to do so) by steering in the direction of the
slide. Applying the brakes or accelerating is not
recommended until you have corrected the slide.
SLIDING AND SKIDDING
Care should be used when riding on loose or slippery surfaces since the ATV may slide. If unexpected and uncorrected, sliding could lead to an
accident.
To reduce the tendency for the front wheels to slide
in loose or slippery conditions, positioning your
weight over the front wheels will sometimes help.
7-27
WHAT CAN HAPPEN
You may lose control of this ATV. You may
also regain traction unexpectedly, which
may cause the ATV to overturn.
HOW TO AVOID THE HAZARD
Learn to safely control skidding or sliding by
practicing at low speeds and on level,
smooth terrain.
On extremely slippery surfaces, such as ice,
go slowly and be very cautious in order to reduce the chance of skidding or sliding out of
control.
With practice, over a period of time, skill at controlled sliding can be developed. The terrain
should be chosen carefully before attempting such
maneuvers, since both stability and control are reduced. Bear in mind that sliding maneuvers should
always be avoided on extremely slippery surfaces
such as ice, since all control may be lost.

speed. If not, stop, dismount on the uphill side of
the ATV and physically turn the ATV around. If
the ATV starts to slip backwards, DO NOT USE
THE REAR BRAKE – the ATV may tip over on
top of you. Instead, apply the front brake or dismount the ATV on the uphill side. (See
page 7-19.)
If your ATV is traversing a sloping surface:
Be sure to ride with your weight positioned towards the uphill side of the ATV to maintain
proper balance. If the ATV starts to tip, steer
down the hill (if there are no obstacles in your
way) to regain balance. If you discover that the
ATV is going to tip over, dismount on the uphill
side. (See page 7-19.)
If your ATV encounters shallow water:
Ride slowly and carefully through slow moving
water, watching for obstacles. Be sure to let water drain from the ATV and CHECK YOUR
BRAKES FOR PROPER OPERATION when
you come out of the water. Do not continue to
ride your ATV until you have regained adequate
braking ability. (See page 7-24.)

Checking the spark plug
The spark plug is an important engine component,
which is easy to check. Since heat and deposits
will cause any spark plug to slowly erode, the spark
plug should be removed and checked in accordance with the periodic maintenance and lubrication chart. In addition, the condition of the spark
plug can reveal the condition of the engine.

Troubleshooting
Although Yamaha ATVs receive a thorough inspection before shipment from the factory, trouble
may occur during operation. Any problem in the fuel, compression, or ignition systems, for example,
can cause poor starting and loss of power.
The following troubleshooting chart represents a
quick and easy procedure for checking these vital
systems yourself. However, should your ATV require any repair, take it to a Yamaha dealer, whose
skilled technicians have the necessary tools, experience, and know-how to service the ATV properly.
Use only genuine Yamaha replacement parts. Imitation parts may look like Yamaha parts, but they
are often inferior, have a shorter service life and
can lead to expensive repair bills.

Cleaning
Frequent, thorough cleaning of your ATV will not
only enhance its appearance but will improve its
general performance and extend the useful life of
many components.
1. Before cleaning the ATV:
a. Block off the end of the exhaust pipe to
prevent water entry. A plastic bag and
strong rubber band may be used.
b. Make sure the spark plug and all filler caps
are properly installed.
2. If the engine case is excessively greasy, apply
degreaser with a paint brush. Do not apply
degreaser to the wheel axles.
3. Rinse the dirt and degreaser off with a garden
hose. Use only enough pressure to do the job.
4. Once most of the dirt has been hosed off,
wash all surfaces with warm water and mild,
detergent-type soap. An old toothbrush or bottle brush is handy for hard-to-reach places.
5. Rinse the ATV off immediately with clean water and dry all surfaces with a chamois, clean
towel or soft absorbing cloth.
6. Clean the seat with a vinyl upholstery cleaner
to keep the cover pliable and glossy.
7. Automotive type wax may be applied to all
painted and chrome plated surfaces. Avoid
combination cleaner-waxes. Many contain
abrasives which may mar the paint or protective finish. When finished cleaning, start the
engine and let it idle for several minutes.

POTENTIAL HAZARD
Operation with wet brakes after washing.
WHAT CAN HAPPEN
Wet brakes may have reduced stopping ability, increasing the chance of an accident.
HOW TO AVOID THE HAZARD
Test the brakes after washing. Apply the
brakes several times at slow speeds to let
friction dry out the linings.
Long-term
Before storing your ATV for several months:
1. Follow all the instructions in the “Cleaning”
section of this chapter.
2. Turn the fuel cock lever to “OFF”.
3. Drain the carburetor float chamber by loosening the drain bolt; this will prevent fuel deposits
from building up. Pour the drained fuel into the
fuel tank.
4. Fill up the fuel tank and add fuel stabilizer (if
available) to prevent the fuel from deteriorating.

e. Remove the spark plug cap from the spark
plug, and then install the spark plug and
the spark plug cap.
Lubricate all control cables and the pivoting
points of all levers and pedals.
Check and, if necessary, correct the tire air
pressure, and then block up the ATV so that
all of its wheels are off the ground. Alternatively, turn the wheels a little every month in order
to prevent the tires from becoming degraded
in one spot.
Cover the muffler outlet with a plastic bag to
prevent moisture from entering it.
Remove the battery and fully charge it. Store it
in a cool, dry place and charge it once a month.
Do not store the battery in an excessively cold
or warm place [less than 0 °C (30 °F) or more
than 30 °C (90 °F)]. For more information on
storing the battery, see page 8-32.

WARRANTY QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS
CUSTOMER SERVICE
Q. What costs are my responsibility during the warranty period?
A. The customer’s responsibility includes all costs of normal maintenance services,
non-warranty repairs, accident and collision damages, and oil, oil filters, air filters,
spark plugs, and brake shoes.
If your machine requires warranty service, you must take it to any authorized
Yamaha ATV dealer within the continental United States. Be sure to bring
your warranty registration card or other valid proof of the original date of
purchase. If a question or problem arises regarding warranty, first contact
the owner of the dealership. Since all warranty matters are handled at the
dealer level, this person is in the best position to help you. If you are still
not satisfied and require additional assistance, please write:
Q. What are some examples of “abnormal” strain, neglect, or abuse?
A. These terms are general and overlap each other in areas. Specific examples include:
Running the machine out of oil, sustained high rpm, full-throttle, operating the
machine with a broken or damaged part which causes another part to fail, damage
or failure due to improper or careless transportation and or tie-down. If you have
any specific questions on operation or maintenance, please contact your dealer
for advice.

CUSTOMER RELATIONS DEPARTMENT
P.O. Box 6555
Cypress, California 90630
Q. Does the warranty cover incidental costs such as towing or transportation due to
a failure?
A. No. The warranty is limited to repair of the machine itself.
When contacting Yamaha Motor Corporation, U.S.A. don’t forget to include
any important information such as names, addresses, model, V.I.N. (frame
number), dates, and receipts.
Q. May I perform any or all of the recommended maintenance shown in the Owner’s
Manual instead of having the dealer do them?
A. Yes, if you are a qualified mechanic and follow the procedures specified in the Owner’s
and Service Manual. We do recommend, however, that items requiring
special tools or equipment be done by a Yamaha ATV dealer.
CHANGE OF ADDRESS
The federal government requires each manufacturer of a motor vehicle to
maintain a complete, up-to-date list of all first purchasers against the
possibility of a safety-related defect and recall. This list is compiled from
the purchase registrations sent to Yamaha Motor Corporation, U.S.A. by the
selling dealer at the time of your purchase.
Q. Will the warranty be void or cancelled if I do not operate or maintain my new ATV
exactly as specified in the Owner’s Manual?
A. No. The warranty on a new ATV cannot be “voided” or “cancelled.” However,
if a particular failure is caused by operation or maintenance other than as described
in the Owner’s Manual, that failure may not be covered under warranty.
If you should move after you have purchased your new ATV, please advise
us of your new address by sending a postcard listing your ATV model
name, V.I.N. (frame number), dealer number (or dealer’s name) as it is
shown on your warranty card, your name and new mailing address. Mail to:
Q. What responsibility does my dealer have under this warranty?
A. Each Yamaha ATV dealer is expected to:
1. Completely set up every new machine before sale.
2. Explain the operation, maintenance, and warranty requirements to your satisfaction at the time of sale, and upon your request at any later date.
3. Each Yamaha ATV dealer is held responsible for his setup, service and warranty repair work.

P.O. Box 6555
Cypress, California 90630
Attention: Warranty Department
This will ensure that Yamaha Motor Corporation, U.S.A. has an up-to-date
registration record in accordance with federal law.
Q. Is the warranty transferable to second owners?
A. Yes. The remainder of the existing warranty can be transferred upon request. The
unit has to be inspected and re-registered by an authorized Yamaha ATV dealer
for the policy to remain effective.

YAMAHA EXTENDED SERVICE (Y.E.S.)

Keep your Yamaha protected even after your warranty
expires with genuine Yamaha Extended Ser vice (Y.E.S.).
In addition, Travel and Recreation Interruption Protection
(TRIP) is included at no extra cost. TRIP gives you up to
$150 reimbursement per occurrence for any reasonable
expenses you incur because your Yamaha needs
covered service: replacement vehicle rental, emergency
towing, phone calls, even food and lodging when you are
away from home. This superb coverage goes into effect
when you purchase Y.E.S., so it applies to any warranty
repairs as well as covered repairs during your entire
Y.E.S. plan period.
Y.E.S. is designed and administered by Yamaha Motor
Corporation to provide maximum owner satisfaction. You
get uninterrupted factor y-backed coverage for extra
peace of mind.

Y. E. S. is flexible. You choose the plan that’s right for
you: 12 months, 24 months, or 36 months beyond your
warranty period.
Y.E.S. coverage is honored at any authorized Yamaha
dealer nationwide.
Y.E.S. is designed and administered by the same
Yamaha people who handle your warranty – and it
shows in the comprehensive coverage benefits. There
are no mileage limitations. Coverage isn’t limited to
“moving par ts” or the “drive train” like many other plans.
And Y.E.S. covers manufacturing defects just like the
warranty. See the sample contract at your Yamaha
dealer to see how comfor ting uninterr upted factor ybacked protection can be.
Y.E.S. coverage is transferable to a new owner if you
sell or trade in your ATV. That can make your Yamaha
much more valuable!
This excellent Y.E.S. plan coverage is only available to
Yamaha owners like you, and only while your Yamaha is still
within the Yamaha Limited Warranty period. So visit your
authorized Yamaha dealer to get all the facts. He can show
you how easy it is to protect your investment with Yamaha
Extended Service.
You don’t have to pay anything for covered repairs.
T h e r e ’s n o d e d u c t i b l e t o p ay, a n d r e p a i r s a r e n ’ t
“pro-rated.” You don’t have any “out-of-pocket” expenses
for covered repairs.
11-7
We urge you to act now. You’ll get the excellent benefits of
TRIP coverage right away, and you’ll rest easy knowing
you’ll have strong factory-backed protection even after your
Yamaha Limited Warranty expires. You can also save
money: Y.E.S. costs less within the first 90 days after you
buy your Yamaha. See your dealer today!

A special note:
If visiting your dealer isn’t convenient, contact Yamaha with
your Primar y ID number (your frame number). We’ll be
happy to help you get the Y.E.S. coverage you need.
