  • Yamaha f 350 purchase help

    2017 f350

    1683 hrs

    1004 hrs under 1000rpm( slow trolled)

    443 hrs 4000-5000

    35 hrs 5000-6000

    Rest between 2000-3000

    0 over heats

    3 over revs

    Max speed (rpms) 6450

    Everything else normall

    Owner admitted he hit a few waves during a shotgun start king tournament.

    I notice he put 50 or so hrs on engine before putting them for sale. Swears they run great and zero issues

    Warranty till 2022

    He bought them 8-2017

    Question: I know over revs are bad but I dont know enough to know if I should run from this deal or not.

    Could be a great repowering for my 25 when Im done rebuilding.

    What say you fellow sharks?

    I'm not worried about the engine bouncing off the rev limiter. That's what its there for, to protect the motor.

    I was looking at F350's too. I'd be more concerned about the flywheel issues Yamaha can't fix. But this one has a warranty. I'd inquire whether or not the flywheels are covered under warranty.

    Personally, I've stopped looking at 350's

      Hey Michael! I think I may back out. In a picture you can see a water stain line and the other motor twin looks like it is caked in mud. Almost looks like they may have been in mud for a while or sunk.

      9 grand for a 2017 350??? Hmmmm......

      Did You get a zuke for your 25? Doss sent me a message saying a guy that lives near me and also fishes Oak Island just bought one from them.

      Im thinking Ill be ready to buy in a month. Going to try a zuke 300.

      If You got one how is it on the 25? Pretty sure we have the same hull. Im near lake Wylie in NC by the way. Belmont.
