Purchased a new F90 4-stroke Yamaha outboard in Spring of 2014. Worked fine until I trailered it home at end of Summer. Tried to winterize it, it wouldn’t start. I spent 4 days going through the gas system, put in new gas, to be sure that wasn’t the problem. Couldn’t get a spark. Finally took it to marina where I bought it, told them I thoroughly checked gas, had no spark. They RE-DID all the gas work I did before putting on their computer diagnostic tool. Turns out, it was two TINY plastic clips on the $685 electronic control unit (ECU). They replaced it, but charged me $400 for all the labor. Yamaha outboard told me “they stand by their dealer”. In other words, they would not help. When I asked if he purchased a new car today, and had a similar thing happen, would this sound like a warranty to him? He just said, “We stand by our dealer”. I certainly will never buy another Yamaha. .
