And in Bali alone, there are more than 60 Yamaha certified mechanic,” said the Manager.

With higher torque and better acceleration compared to the old model, the F250H also efficient in terms of spare parts. The spare parts for Yamaha F250H outboards can be substituted because using the same spare parts with the F250G model. Only in some electrical area, the differences exist between the new and old model. As for the fuel, Yamaha suggests using Pertalite rather than regular Premium gasoline. This is to make the engine operation last longer although it can also perform well using regular Premium Gasoline, Adhi explained
