Help Tip: If you have a question that has not been answered to your satisfaction in the archives, it is always best to start a new thread of your own. By starting your own thread, you will receive the maximum number of views by forum members.

Below are some additional forum policies in hopes of all iboats members will follow, Thank you.

1. Please do not reply to old topics or hijack existing topics. Old topics of a technical nature are like a library book, Please do not write in them.

2. Old topics should be considered archives and used for reference only. Please do not reply to them.

3. Do not take over someone elseís topic (aka hijack) with your own question, even if it is similar. If you have a question that has not been covered to your satisfaction in the archives, it is always best to start a new topic of your own.

4. If you have a question for the original poster (OP) and the topic is over 30 days old, send the OP a PM, he may not even visit the forums any longer, or may not notice your question in the old topic.

5. By starting your own topic, you will receive the maximum number of views by forum helpers that may not even notice your question when itís posted at the end of someone elseís topic. And those answers will be specific to your particular issue.

6. Please do not post to topics that have been inactive for more than 3 months unless you are the original poster. We have very active forums and any topic that remains inactive for that long should be considered "dead". It is especially confusing when there is an entirely new question posted to an old topic.

7. Posting at the end of any topic is considered to be hijacking the original posters topic which in turn subjects the topic to be closed if it continues to happen thus not making it fair to the original poster in the future had for some reason he/she needed to return for additional information or provide an update of the problem solved which is always welcomed within a reasonable amount of time frame.

8. Please note that you should see a red banner pop up near the bottom of each inactive topic asking you not to reply to old topics. The Red banner will read: Please note this topic has been inactive for 90 days. For the best results, please start a new topic.

Thank you all in advance for doing your part in helping iboats run a smooth ship.

  • 2006 yamaha 225 hpdi vmax (need help)

    I went out this morning and boat running like a top. After running about half the day ,I was on a run back up the river when my rpm, fell off to around 4500 . I stopped and restarted boat hopped right up on plane and came to full rpm's on pad and then thirty seconds after it fell back to 4500 r.p.m.'s . I then began to worry and shut down engine and pulled cowling to check for any visual problems and found none. motor would then not restart. After trying to start for some time i finnally gave up and trimmed motor up and was going to use trolling motor to come in. but with motor trimmed up engine fired right up. dropped it back down and headed for the ramp, motor still dropping r.p.m's to about 4500. even though it is a 2006 it only has 76 hours on it and I run ring free and stabil on every tank as recommended. I am a heavy equipment technician and know my way around a multimeter and wrenches. just wanted some help from you guys that seem to know these engines so well. any pointers on where I should start. motor still has factory warranty but I am afraid to take it in because of some post I read saying yamaha would not cover fuel related problems. water seperator changed in last 5 hours. Any help would be much apperciated.

    Had similar problem. Try changing fuel filters. Should have three (3). One external water seperato/filter and two (2) on engine itself. We found out about the third one the hard way! It's in the high pressure system.

      monitor the fuel pressures to see if they are dropping( VST & rail), that should give you an idea of where the restriction is. high pressure pump screen or the pre filter would be my guess at this point

        R & R Fuel filters If you do not have a water separator in the fuel supply line? Good luck... "Don't forget to bring a towel"
