yamaha 30 d service query

i have a low hours 2002 30 d Yam Autolube 2 stroke runs really well. had it 4 years

its due for a service, which i normally do myself

plugs,oil,fuel filter,and impeller according to the manual thats it.

question is what about autolube pump, fuel pump and thermostat?

is it worth booking it to yamaha service agent to get these checked?

yes is the short answer. for what it will cost and to give it a good clean and service it is well worth it but then thats my job so I am 100% biased

I'd say don't bother..it's low hours and looked after...and these yams are known for being very tough.

I'd do the normal stuff and not worry.

In hours terms it may have done less than engines that are a year old and used commercially.....who would be grateful for a basic once over let alone new pumps etc ;-)

I'd say carry on yourself with what you feel you can and get the bits you know you cannot do checked by your local engineer (not specifically main agent) if you feel the need! You could remove and check the stat yourself, or change it whilst your there, cleaning out the housing etc while your at it.

Your engine should give you warning signs if its got more serious issues that need further investigation. The beauty of a simple, traditional 2 Stroke over the more sophisticated models that would obviously need dealer diagnostics

Enjoy
