Is it safe to run a 2 cycle Yamaha 6 horse motor at wide open throttle for extended periods of time?

As long as the engine is in good shape, with a good water pump, proper fuel mixture and a propeller that keeps the RPM's in the recommended operating range, you can run it WOT all day long

Don't know if I welcomed you before but welcome to BR from a fellow ham. Hope to catch you on the air or echolink at some point.

I believe Viper is right but I always back off a little after I get up on full plain. Doesn't seem to slow down any but gives me some piece of mind I'm not pushing her too hard.
