If you should do this, I would recommend installing new fasteners - the revised version - and use ARP Ultra Torque Assembly Lubricant....... The one thing I will do before season starts is loosen and retorque the bolts to spec. You may want to so the same.
Such a different experience. It has to be the service department. I am only getting new bolts (paying for the second bolt - parts only) but no luck on the coolers. That said, I asked the dealer to estimate a repair for keel damage from a trailer strike and he asked if it was on the port or starboard side of the boat. I almost said the boat did not hit the trailer that hard.Got a courtesy call from my dealer today. Seems as though Yamaha has no record of me purchasing the extended warranty (dealer is getting that straight now since they have record that I did). However, even with them assuming that I had no YES warranty, Yamaha was still willing to replace one cooler (parts and labor) or both (and I cover labor). That may be good news for those of you that run out of warranty and have the issue if you havent had it already.
I have heard the same although I am waiting for a PM back from someone on yjb that claims to have done a full engineering analysis. For those that do not want to replace the coolers, replacing this 3rd bolt may become regular maintenance that is done every season, like changing the spark plugs.
Are you working with Gary at Nielsens?My boat is currently at dealer. I am still under warranty. Yamaha replaced bolt on one cooler. Yamaha is unwilling to do anything else with oil coolers, unless they are leaking or break more bolts.
Probably gonna fail during vacation boating trip or out on lake Michigan with my wife and three year old. Frustrating scenario.
took boat to dealer to replace broken reverse cable. Warranty will not cover. Yamaha says I hit something and broke cable. I said show me the dent.
I PM'd him the other day. Not sure why he didnt want to share this publicly. No idea what, if any, credibility this has. He also says his boat is a 2012. Never heard of a 2012 having any issue with this.?I have heard the same although I am waiting for a PM back from someone on yjb that claims to have done a full engineering analysis. For those that do not want to replace the coolers, replacing this 3rd bolt may become regular maintenance that is done every season, like changing the spark plugs.
I have made a couple of purchases there and found the sales side of the house to be top notch but I have had bad luck with service in the past. Things like not putting the boat all the way back together in a way it could sink and using speaker wire to wire my halogen underwater lights. I actually swore I would never go back to them but now I need them for the warranty work. I have worked with Josh (head tech) quite a bit in the past and he does seem quite knowledgeable. This is my first time working with Gary and he does seem to try really hard.Hi Davel 501
Yes, I am working with Gary at Nielsens, and they are being professional and wonderful.
I would highly recommend this dealership to anyone looking to purchase or needing service.
I have spoke and dealt personally with their main technician in the past and he is very knowledgeable about the jet boats.
Absolutely no complaints regarding the dealership.
I completely understand that the dealer must get all warranty work authorized through someone at MOTHER YAMAHA.
Sometimes I think wining on here may help.
