Dosent mean that they dont exist then.
As your website mentions servicing etc of yams, and other brands except evinrudes, I would have thought you dont get a lot of them in then?
Being a Yamaha service center (as mentioned on your web page) I would have though you get a lot of Yams in for servicing.
It a bit like a BMW garage saying he never get a Merc in that has more than 20K on the clock????
As the OP asked for facts, here is what I am aware of;
Fact. You can get the software on line (I got it from fleabay, all together with leads for about 100 quid) complete with service manuals etc etc.
Fact. With said software you dont need a dealer to set it up.
Fact. The software will tell you faults, running hours and a a bunch of other engine perameters such as max RPM, temp etc etc.
Fact. You can service the engine yourself with consumable parts, and a bit of knowledge, most standard tools, and time. As pointed oput if the engine is 6 years old it wont have a warranty (nor will any other engine!) so servicing can be carried out by yourself.
Hope you find that it is a good deal, and is i good condition.
Not sure if you can get the software quickly, but look at this ebay item number, will show you what it does....321155009186. If nothing else you may be able to sell the stuff on.....
I am not home till thursday next week, so couldnt help you out, but someone else may be able to.....
