How much for oil change?

I took my Waverunner and my 212 Limited S in for their first oil change about a month ago. I was a little surprised that it cost about $200 per engine to do the oil change with filter. Is this a typical fee? I know you have to suction the oil out, but it still seems a little high to me.

That seems high considering you can buy all the oil, filters, and your own suction device for way less.

Very high, even for a stealership. I pay about 300 for both engines. Oil change, new spark plugs, and a once over. Which is still too high but I am too lazy to do it myself.

Seems excessively high. I looked up on Amazon and found this for dual engines.

can someone pls confirm this is what‘s needed for our yamas twin engine boats? especially since there is no spark plugs numbers listed to verify what one is getting.

First 10 hour oil change is a lot more than oil and filter - the ECM is checked for fault codes, bearing grease, steering and bucket, plugs checked, etc.

Find your local yamalube dealer on their website and get the Watercraft II Oil Change Kit. Comes with the correct oil and filter plus the yamalube warranty. Then go buy a pump fluid evacuator for $50 or so on amazon. The spark plugs i use are the NGK Laser Iridium Part No 6481. Got them at carquest with a 20% of coupon for $80. There's a dude on YouTube who shows how to change the oil. Just make sure the plugs are gapped correctly, and the gap measurement can be found in your owners manual or online. I've done oil changes at the beginning of every year plus spark plug changes every 2 years with minimal boat engine knowledge and it's super easy.

You can also snag the entire kit from @JetBoatPilot


It is not complicated at all and will save you those dollars to invest in other mods!😁

$100/hr give or take plus oil and filter. Roughly $50 for oil and filter. Perhaps a little high from a relative perspective but anything to do with a dealership is high. If I were a dealer I would probably charge that too. It's a convenience factor for those that can't do it. I also wouldn't want to flood my shop with $100 2 engine oil change. You would go broke unless you literally had no other business. I let the dealer to my first change and inspect and then did it myself from then on.

I look at oil filters on line (Amazon), and see repeated complaints that the filter ordered does not fit their engine, even though the advertising says it should. Can anyone direct me to a specific filter that will fit the 1.8 liter engine on a 2019 212 Limited S? Looks like I could do the oil change with the correct filter.
