Maintenance Matters- Power Tilt and Trim


Your outboard’s power tilt and trim unit uses hydrolics to change the angle of thrust for maximum performance from hole-shot, all the way through top end. Simple maintenance will keep the unit running trouble free.

Periodically lube the tops of the rams and contact points using a quality marine grease. Check that the rams are corrosion free and there are no leaks. If leaking is present, have an authorized Yamaha dealer inspect the unit. Occasionally check the fluid level in the trim and tilt unit. If it happens to be low, top it off with Yamaha Performance Power Trim and Tilt Fluid to provide smooth operation and reduced wear.

When it comes to achieving peak performance, maintenance matters.
