Thanks to the FAQ and various messages, I was able to get my YDS connected yesterday on the first Try. Engines have about 175hrs on them total (mechanical counter is showing 168, so I guess the original owner likely had it installed at the 10hr service).When I use the YDS on my boat I have to make sure on my computer that the device is set to "com port 1". Otherwise I get a communication error.
Yikes; thanks for pointing that out. I keep my boat in Sarnia, and will be taking it out by the end of the month. @beachbum, next week is supposed to be nice! Why the rush?Typo in profile... should be Ontario
And... welcome fellow Canadian. .. sadly season is ending...
I am taking the boat out of the water today...
Oh ita a 2005 ar230 h/o yamahaI replaced both shifter and steering cables thanks for everyones input it went real smooth but when I dropped it into the water it was very sluggish and about 3000 rpm the starboard bucket was violently chattering spitting water in the air also heavy vibration in shifter handles im pretty sure it needs a turn or 2 to make it tighter
