It was only for year model '11 I believe. "Not a recall" but they will replace your "cylinder block assembly" for you, as they acknowledge a possible defect.

Yamaha has identified the potential for certain
VF250LA cylinder block assemblies, produced
November 2009 through November 2010, to prematurely
wear under certainconditions. Aspart of Yamaha’sgoal to provide the
highest level of customer satisfaction, Yamaha will cover the cost of
parts and labor to replace the cylinder block assembly
as a one-time goodwill gesture. Yamaha is notifying all registered owners of affected
units by mail. A copy of this letter is included in this
bulletin. The customer should take this letter along with the affected
outboard to an authorized Yamaha dealer.
The Warranty Authorization (W.A.) process will be
utilized to request parts and labor for this ServicePer-Bulletin
Campaign.

This is directly from the service bulletin

Yes I did. Mine is a 2011. Sartin Marine called me earlier this week to tell me they were going to replace the powerhead at no charge to me.

I've had no issues with the motor and I have run the dog urine out of it.

Same here! I'm getting close to 200hrs on mine and I've ran it pretty hard. Not sure if I really want to get it replaced...

Got my letter for my 2010 SHO. The letter states I have until the end of December 2017 to get the powerhead replaced.
All I need is a recommendation for a good yamah mechanic to do the service, as there are none in my area anymore.

That's correct. As far as I know, the letters where sent out to 250 SHO owners only.
There is more info over on the BBC.

Doesn't a 250 and 225 have the same power head?
I have a 2011 225 and haven't heard a thing.
