Yamaha Outboard Service Kits

 Hi guys,

Does anyone know of a place that sells service kits for outboards ? my local Yamaha dealer said no one has service kits and couldn't even quote me on the various parts required.

Im wanting to service my motor myself so a kit would be handy.

Thanks in advance

Stu.

 Its friggin sad the way that someone (importers?) have pushed these parts as they are shafting both the dealers and punters here in Aus.
Case in point, genuine Suzi oil filters here $40 ($35 on Ebay)

Boats.net $US4.95

These filters appear to be the same as Suzuki Swift ($AU16) but its easier just to order 4 plus anodes and anything else from there and get it in a week.
This mark up cannot be just our higher wages here??

 Thanks for all the replies

 Thanks for all the replies fellas, I have a 130hp saltwater series 2 stroke so a service kit wouldn't be much and the dealer near me just wasn't interested so won't be going back there.

Will look up this SIM Yamaha for sure. Might head down to Bursons too.

Thanks again guys.

 As Stevo said below.But once

Sun, 2018-04-15 19:37

 As Stevo said below.
But once you have it off, put gear lever in neutral and twist the shift shaft to neutral also.

That way you know both are in the right spot.
BUT, next time you do it, leave it in gear (say forwards) and leave control and gearbox in that position.

That way when you slip it back on you can rotate the prop to line drive spline up into engine easier

 Shift shaft on the gearbox

Sun, 2018-04-15 18:10

 Shift shaft on the gearbox not in neutral when you bolted the lower unit back on. Smaller shaft in front of the drive shaft. Pull lower unit off and rotate it slightly.

 I was told to put it in gear

Sun, 2018-04-15 18:58

 I was told to put it in gear before I dropped the leg off, did that and left it in gear the whole time, shifted to neutral once all back together but its not so neutral.

Still the shift shaft ?

Sounds like

Sun, 2018-04-15 19:25

You missed the gear change sleeve . Normaly doesn't line up when lifting leg. What stevo pointed out. You must always look when lifting lower leg up make sure it lines up.100 percent will be that. If you had in gear( forward) put it back there, lower leg and look where gear cog is make sure it goes where it should.

Just be gentle when lining up

Tue, 2018-04-17 23:26

Just be gentle when lining up the shift rod on the SW Series. Can’t quite remember how my mechanic explained it, but said that the last bloke (wasn’t me, before you ask) had jammed the lower unit back on and it popped the detent ball off the top of the rod. That ball helps keep the selector in neutral. 

 

Massive job to get the ball back in - on the V6 it means powerhead off. So I’m just living with it, luckily no problems yet.
