By all accounts, very Badly, Barnet said that if they had a problem with an OPTI ,Bauras would just replace/fix the problem ..... But with YAM ,they just burried there head in the sand and hoped it would go away... And claming it could have been user error etc ....

Same in Scandinavia, would like to here more about how they handle the case, did they take it on warranty in the end or are they still fighting with them?

to be honest I dont know how it finished up, but From what Barnet said , it sounded like it was more that one engine , and I could have involved a 250 too ..... I would give Laurance a call , he seems a nice guy , and I am sure he would tell you .

Tim.

Just to be sure, we are talking about the VMAX 300 hpdi. Not to be confused with the standard HPDI.
I know there are enough problems with this last one and was wondering if the VMAX makes a difference.

(Though I will be very interested anyway in the end of your story.)

I have been driving the 250 VMAX pretty much and thinks its a great engine, no problems so far, the 300 VMAX i dont know anything about and havent heard anything bad.
Just recieved an email.
They are on stock here in Yamaha Holland Amsterdam.

Also available as a Z300 HPDI in 25- and 30-inch shaft lengths, the hot model is the VZ300 VMax, which is a 20-inch-shaft engine intended primarily for bass boats.
