IMPORTANT WARRANTY INFORMATION IF YOU USE YOUR YAMAHA OUTSIDE THE U.S.A. OR CANADA
Welcome to the Yamaha Family!
Congratulations on the purchase of your new Yamaha products. Yamaha is commit- ted to exceptional customer satisfaction and we want your ownership experience to be a satisfying one. Please read the following warranty information to help ensure satisfaction with your Yamaha.
This model was manufactured with specifications appropriate for sale and use in the U.S.A. and Canada. Please note the following information:
As explained in the Limited Warranty Statement, the Yamaha warranty covers your Yamaha when it is registered and used in your country of residence. If you are temporarily using a U.S.-registered outboard motor in Canada, or a Canada- registered outboard motor in the United States, and it needs warranty repairs, you should contact a nearby authorized Yamaha Outboard Motor Dealer for assistance. The local dealer will contact Yamaha on the owner's behalf so that needed repairs can be made as quickly as possible.
If you need repairs while temporarily using your Yamaha in another country, contact the local authorized Yamaha distributor for that country. Yamaha will work with that distributor to make the needed repairs as quickly as possible. If you have to pay for a repair that you believe your warranty would have covered at home, present all repair orders, receipts, or other related documents to your local dealer when you return home. He will be able to contact Yamaha on your behalf to see if any refund can be provided. TIP: Your Yamaha model may not be sold in some countries. Therefore, a Yamaha dealer outside the United States or Canada may not have all of the replacement parts or technical information available to provide proper service. This may unavoidably delay repairs. Thank you for your understanding should this happen.
If your Yamaha is registered or used primarily outside the United States or Canada, the warranty printed in this manual does not apply to you. Contact the dealer who sold the Yamaha marine power unit to you for customer support information.
