Yamaha 80 hp 10 hr service

Hi, my 4 stroke Yam 80 is due in for its 10 hr service & to keep the warranty valid itīs off to the dealer.

A quick scan of the service book & it looks straightforward, engine oil & gearbox oil change plus a few visual checks.

Anything else I should get them to look at while it is in?

Appreciate any advice, I know next to nothing about outboards....

Hey, me too! On 6.2 hours and counting!

I don't think there is anything special, I believe the main purpose of the 10 hour service is to change the oil which will be laden with metal particles where the components have been wearing in.

Not sure about the UK dealers/sales, but there is nothing that *must* be done by the dealer for the 10 hr here in the States.

The actual work includes oil change, LU oil change, and spark plug change; the rest is inspection.

It's widely held that it's a DIY operation as long as you keep receipts for the replaced items (as proof of work being done.)

Again, I'm not sure this is true anywhere but the US.

I thought that the head was checked to ensure all the bolts were still at the correct torque. Surely if you have just spent thousands on an engine its worth getting it professionaly serviced ( if only to maintain any kind of warranty ?)

JUst my thoughts but I would much rather pay Ģ100 ( for sake of an amount) and know its all OK , than not pay it to find a major problem when you are looking at the perfect day to get out on the water & then find its not covered under warranty so will cost a lot to fix.

Just my thoughts & what I have been told ( which seesm sensible enough)

ahh... but you sell insurance so rely on this "piece of mind" "just in case" and "what if" argument all the time I think RibinSpain's issue - is really - is there anything he can't do himself? - answer no. I'm 90% sure my engine actually said the 10 hr service could be DIY'd.
