New Yamaha V-Max 300hpdi

Is there anyone who has one of these.

Once I have read on this forum that the 250V-Max has more power than the 300 HPDI.
I'm wondering If this engine will give any differance.

Dan.

I have read of quite a few people having probs with the 300hp Yamaha - don't know how true these are though. Personally I would go with the Evinrude Etec 250 - have heard nothing but good reports on them and they are pretty good on fuel as well.

Try doing a search here on Ribnet and you will find plenty of feedback.

I know that my dealer sells lot's of big yamaha engines but he is not very keen on the 300hp version. the ones he sold have often problems.

Ask Petrov. He has 2 x 300 hp HDPI on his rib.

I have seen Petrov's replies. I was wandering if there would be any more positive signs about this new VMAX model.
Everyone seems to be very positive about the VMAX 250 range. I was hoping that this engine would be better than the normal 300 HPDI.
I don't know how new this model is. Maybe it hasn't proven itself yet or no one has bought one yet.

Yamaha said to me that his engine doesnt come to Europe, was it imported from US maybe or maybe the guy i talked to had the wrong info.

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.

I have talked to a few people about these engines , and everone says that the pistons are made from chocolate!!!!!

Barnet told me , that everyone he has fitted has died , Redbay said the same.
