I've just bought a 1998 Yamaha 30GMS (2 smoke, 2cyl) which appears to be in pretty good nick.
Although it was described as 'serviced' by the dealer I'm not sure how thoroughly this was done and I'm going to give it a service myself for peace of mind. Due to the fact that my young daughters come out on the water with me and I'd rather not take any chances as far as reliability is concerned.
I've got some new plugs, gear oil and also intend to check the usual service areas (grease points, fuel filter etc.) but would like to know if there are any 'known problems' with this model of engine and if there's anything I should look out for or pay particular attention to.
It doesn't look like it's had a particularly hard life so fingers crossed it's been a good buy but can anybody offer an opinion or any advice on this particular model?
