I have a brand new 225 Yamaha 4-stroke that threw a rod with about 12 hours on it. Had to get towed in over 30 miles. I paid close to $14,000. for the motor and now Yamaha will not give me a new engine. They want to just rework the old one. I feel ripped and dont think they are standing by their product. I understand if I was two years into the motor but twelve hours, Come on. They are being real jerks about it. Has anyone else had this kind of problem? Would welcome your comments. I have been surprised at thier attitude toward the whole thing.
