I called a couple of the dealers and they are 2-3 weeks out on service. Do any of you have a good Yamaha dealer to do warranty work on my Yamaha motor? I don’t mind driving 60 miles or so to get the work done. I hate to have a boat sit for 2-3 weeks before they even look at it.

I have a 1.5 year old Yamaha SHO 250 that is getting gas in the oil or making oil as you would call it. Took it to the local dealer today and got the same as I got last time I called a different dealer about it. Change the oil and drive the heck out of it. “You aren’t driving it hard enough” is what two dealers have told me. I changed the oil and filter today again and will monitor closely to document what is happening and try to gauge how much the oil level is rising. The oil level was a couple inches over full when I drained it today. Not good IMO. I set the level 1/2 way between the marks on the dipstick today. I only have 109 hours on it and this is the 3rd oil change. Changed it at about 20 hours then at about 60-70ish hours as oil was really black and high on the stick. I hooked up my motor to my Lowrance graph so now I know the exact hours.

Question, what rpm's is it reaching as its propped now? If it isn't reaching at least 6000 then you are over propped and that is contributing to the making oil problem. Sad to say its a problem on some motors. To correct it have it propped correctly and run it hard for 20-30 minutes. Do that 2-3 times and it should stop.

I have never run it to 6,000 RPM. I have been running it at 5,200 - 5,400 and have throttle left. I had been not getting it over 5,000 RPM until I went with a guide this fall that had a SHO and he ran his 5,500 - 6,000. Honestly I have never been educated on the proper RPM’s to run that motor. I followed the owners manual on the break in to the T.

At 5,400 RMP the boat goes 42MPH.

I’ll try running it hard every time I go out if the water is smooth enough to allow it. I can put in at a different ramp that will allow me a 30 minute or longer run.

The boat dealer where I bought my boat, texted me some updates this morning. They said Yamaha had a new service bulletin out this week that says you need 60-70 hours above 3,000 RMP to seat the rings with the newer style piston cylinders. The bulletin also said idling is also considered heavy use and to change the oil more often the more you idle you boat engine.

Been that way since the SHO made its debut. Nothing new.

If your using the 5-30 synthetic, kick it up to the 10-30 weight oil until you get the rings seated.
