Yeah, I would recommend doing that annually every spring. Your owners manual should specify the service intervals and type of oil recommended.

I used to have a Yamaha 8hp 4 stroke kicker. Changed the oil every fall before putting it away and at least once during the summer.

It's cheap insurance to have trouble free fishing.

Just make sure you buy the right oil - don't go with the cheap stuff.

Hey Jake, I have the same motor. I change the oil myself but have never changed the oil filter... if there is one. There is nothing in the owners manual about a oil filter. Any info?
