  1. Yamaha 90 stalling

    No, I did the service myself.
  2. Yamaha 90 stalling

    I have 46hrs, but this has done it since it was brand new.
  3. Yamaha 90 stalling

    It has a bulb, but I've not been pumping it. I figure it being fuel injection it would hold its prime. The dealer told me when we bought the boat that I shouldn't have to pump it unless I ran it out of fuel or after changing the filters, so I took his word on it. I'll try pumping it on start ups this weekend and see if it helps.
  4. Yamaha 90 stalling

    Has anyone had an issue with a brand new Yamaha motor stalling on a restart? To be clearer, I have a 2016 Yamaha 90 4 stroke fuel injected. The initial start-up is ok. After swimming or whatever for a little while when I go to start the motor again it will act like it is going to run but immediately dies. The next crank it runs like it should. I have talked on the phone to my dealer and all he could come up with is possibly air in the fuel line. I'm hesitant on taking it in right now because it always starts and runs fine on the second try and I don't want to waste summer boat time. Thought I would run it by you all to see if anyone else has encountered this before and what solved the problem. If I can't figure it out, I guess I will make the 1 1/2 hr drive to the dealer after the weather cools off.
  5. Trolling motor

    You guys with a 55# thrust trolling motor tell me if I will I regret not going with a 70# thrust . It will be on a 20' with 90 yamaha 4 stroke. I really don't want to spend the money on higher thrust and an extra battery if I can keep from it.
  6. Oil change pumps

    Not opposed to electric other than costing more. I'll research those too, thanks!
  7. Fishing rod holders on ski bar?

    I've got two on my tow bar and thinking about adding two more. Kaydano is right about the size. I bought the 1"-1 1/4" size and installed on the forward bars of my tow bar. I'll try to get ya some pics this weekend.
  8. Oil change pumps

    Thanks guys, I'll check those out.
  9. Oil change pumps

    I'm looking to buy a manual oil change pump and wonder what you guys use or recommend. I need it to hold at least 6 qts. so that I can use it on my vehicles too.
  10. Fueling with a portable container

    I bought this jug https://m.summitracing.com/parts/sum-g7988 and a shaker siphon on recommendation for this post and used it for the first time this past weekend. This was a lot easier than trying to hold 5 gallons and pour it in a funnel. Highly recommend these items!
  11. Fuel Gauge intermittent

    I had an issue about 2 months ago with my gauge showing full when it had been showing half. I took the plate off where the sending unit is and tapped the top of the unit with the handle of a screwdriver and it has been working fine since then. The dealer knows about it and if it happens again I'll be taking it in at the end of summer to get fixed.
