Servicing two stroke outboard

Recommended Posts

I'm about to leave for college and need to service (annual "check up" service) my outboard so I'm good to go for all my tournaments through the fall and into spring. I live in South Carolina so I will be using my boat throughout the winter. I will most likely be doing the servicing myself because I used to do my older outboard (1996 Johnson Fast Strike) with no issues and even rebuilt the whole thing myself pretty much. If I do have any problems my family owns a marine mechanic and sales shop so they are just a phone call away. The current engine I own is a 2004 Yamaha VMAX 150 (2 stroke engine).


What I am looking for is a list of all the things that should be checked or maintenanced in a typical outboard annual service?


I bought the boat in March and this is really the first time I am doing any work to it. I have no idea when the last time everything was checked but the previous owner said everything had been kept up to date and checked yearly. So if you have any other advice as to stuff to look at feel free to let me know. 


I have a list somewhere of all the things I had hoped to check/replace but off the top of my head I had spark plugs, impeller, lower unit oil, filters, compression check, check the prop for line, and a few other things that I can't remember at the moment but are on the list. 


If you have any other things I should take a look at not pertaining to the outboard then let me know. Id love to make myself a check list so going forward I will have the things I need to check! 


Thanks in advance and again, I have a 2004 Yamaha VMAX 150
