It is plastic, but hasn't it been plastic over the last few years? Why would the new models suddenly need to be grounded out...If the reverse bucket is plastic, it can generate static electricity just from the friction of the water and air. My guess is it is a ground of some kind.
Some guy got a static shock on a job site once, sued the company, the lawyers make a ton of money, and the price of goods climbs. Got it.I asked the same question from the guy that sold me my leaf blower and that was his explaination. Probably an OSHA or safety thing now.
@Maillis .....good pick-up.....it certainly looks like the continuity wire for anti corrosion as found on I/O drives.
I noticed the wire and figured it was a grounding wire too. I didn't realize it was new for 2020 though. At least Yamaha is making a few improvements year after year. I didn't expect anything new but was surprised to find new aluminum wheels with my trailer. Improvements are always nice to see.Does anyone know what the function is of this wire lead that was added to the jet pump on 2020 boats? Any benefit to adding it on earlier models?
