Yamaha Enhances 11 Models With Features Customers Want


(Thursday, August 26,1999 - ATLANTA, GA) Not all of the news coming out of Yamaha Marine is about its new High Pressure Direct Injection outboards or its new Four-Stroke outboards. Yamaha has enhanced 11 models in its line with features its customers want. Freshwater Flushing Device
Nine models receive Yamaha's front-mounted freshwater flushing device. The freshwater flushing device easily attaches to a standard garden hose with no tools needed. Also, the engine does not need to be running in order to flush any salt and dirt out of the engine's water passages. The nine models to receive the freshwater flushing device are:
