Many people have water pump issues/confusion.
Yamaha should have stuck to the one setup, other OB don't seem to be as problematic.
Yamaha never met a part it did not like to change. Gives the engineers something to do I suppose.

If three parts are needed to do a job then Yamaha will use five. Or more.

Is this the Yamaha way or is this Japanese way of doing stuff? I don't know.

Might be the Japanese way. I read that industry in Japan wanted to get some military/aerospace contract work but the quality of their data (see Yamaha as a prime example) is so poor that companies outside of Japan were not interested. People don't want to buy stuff if there is nil support to service it or maintain it.
