If it is used to make a living…
If it is used to save lives…
If it works in harsh conditions…
It will be a YAMAHA
Yamaha is acknowledged as having the most reliable and durable outboard motors in the world, particularly in a commercial environment. Years of research market and experience ensure that the motors deliver great performance and reliability constantly, and last longer.
All motors rely on good regular service and correct preventative maintenance programmes.
Yamaha dealer workshops are staffed by experienced technicians who receive regular training to ensure that your motor gives you back the value that you deserve and have paid for.
Yamaha technical training staff are constantly revisiting all the technicians and ensuring that they meet the expected standards to service those hardworking motors. All technicians who have attended the training over the years have been issued with certificates to indicate to you, our important customers that you will receive the best attention and advice as well as the WARRANTY SERVICE required.
Yamaha warranty is only valid if the motor or waverunner is registered on the Club Yamaha site and the outboard motors are serviced by certified technicians. As the technology advances to achieve the highest levels of efficiency and the lowest levels of emissions, more emphasis is placed on the onboard computers (ECU) managing the fuel injection system.
Each year the digital diagnostic systems are improved and the technicians need to be trained to work with the latest software.
The diagnostic systems are controlled by Yamaha Motor Co in Japan and are downloaded directly to the qualified workshops laptop and the files are protected and cannot be copied. This technology is now no longer available to a non-authorised Yamaha dealer. It is only available at an authorised Yamaha dealership who has been trained and certified i.e. the diagnostic software stays as proprietary information of the dealerships and cannot be transferred. Should the technician leave for any reason the information stays behind.
To protect you, the customer, each qualified technician is rewarded with a certificate, which is displayed at the dealership to indicate that they are trained on the latest software.
If the motor is serviced or repaired at a non-Yamaha, non-certified dealer the warranty will become void.
In this process, all technicians are being evaluated and master technicians certificates are awarded to those who have the required years of service and are qualified i.e. have attended the necessary courses in the five main areas:
- Fuel Injection
- Trim & Tilt
YDSA is in the process of ensuring that all workshops are under the supervision of a master technician. Please check that your local dealer has the following:
- Genuine authorised Yamaha Dealer status
- Has certificates indicating that the technicians have been certified by Yamaha Tech Department
- The workshop is under the supervision of a Master Technician
- Sells only genuine Yamaha spare parts
- Uses Yamalube oils to give you the best lubrication
Your Yamaha outboard motor offers you the best value in the market place in terms of performance, reachability, long service and value, so please ensure that you use your local authorised, certified Yamaha Marine dealer to maximise this advantage.
