    Yamaha 225/97 exhaust

    I asked this before.
    I understand there was a problem with the exhaust in the mid section.
    Not sure what years were affected????
    Thinking of getting a 97/225 and need ANY input.Good or BAD!!!

    all I have ever seen was the F V6 motors from 2001-2006 or so.
    I have seen the muffler assy on some 250-300 HPDI's melt but that was due to running issues not a coating issue.

      Rodbolt, has yamaha got a handle on the issue after 2006? I know they don't date their motors with a model year anymore but I believe there is a manufacture date on the bracket. Only reason I ask is as you know i have had some issues with my 1988 yamaha's this year and if I repower I am looking for V6-200's. Won't be able to afford to go new unfortunately.

        All Yams are provided with stickers that indicate the month and year of production.

        The exhaust system corrosion problem that was somewhat widespread relates to early F200/F225/F250 models. At or about 2006 all models were equipped with updated exhaust parts from the factory.

        This is not to say that a motor later than 2006 is not going to have the corrosion problem. It might.
