      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Squeeking noise from Yamaha 4 stroke

Recommended Posts

I have a 2006 75hp four stroke Yamaha tiller motor. I was on Mille Lacs a few weeks ago and after doing a 10 minute run from one spot to the next, I backed off on the motor and started getting what sounded like a belt squeeking sound from the motor. I shut it off and started it back up again and the sound continued. I let it sit for a while and the sound stopped. I did another run back to the landing and the sound started up again.

I called the dealer since its still under warranty. The service guy told me that when the motor is out of the water running at or near wide open,the bushings in the drive shaft are drying out and thats causing this noise. He told me they could put some grease on the bushings but the sound would come back and this is something that they see alot of. I was wondering if anyone else has had this problem or knows what is causing it. The boat is at the dealer now but I have not heard anything back from them yet and don't feel happy with what I was told prior to taking the boat in. A $7500 motor should not making a squeeking noise when its two years old!

So what your saying is the gear case is dried out and that might be the cause of the squeeking sound. I have had the boat a few times since the problem started and the sound seems to come and go.

I have a Yam. F150 and it does the same squealing off and on. It's been that way for two years. There's a lot of chat about this in past postings and it sounds like it's the bushing. Some dealers say that there is no harm done and it's just the design. I did see a picture on a past post showing where you could spray some lube to stop the squeal for a bit, but it never really goes away for good.

Very common for Yamahas. Buddy had a 200HP and after a long run it'd do it too. My 90 hasn't, yet. Some people will spray silicone in an area under the engine where this bushing is to quiet the squealing. Supposedly this is more of an annoyance than something physically damaged or failing.

I have a 2006 90hp yamaha tiller, same annoying sound after make long runs, usually last about 5 minutes after going back to idle then goes away. Love the motor other than that.

I also have a 2006 90hp tiller same problem. Talked to the dealer in White Bear Lake said they knew what the problem was right away just over the phone . As previously stated it was a dry bushing. They claim to have replaced it ,I don't know if they did but hasn't happened again. Dealers in Duluth couldn't figure it out. Whether it is harmful or not you should not have to listen to the squeeking noice , especially on a new motor. A little embarrassing when someone asks what that noice is and you have to say Oh that's not going to hurt anything it is a common thing. Not too good of advertising for the manufacture. Just my 2 cents

Just got the boat back from dealer but haven't had it out yet to see if the sound is still there. They greased the drive shaft. We will see if the sound is still there or comes back with time. I love the motor other than that.

I want to be a part of this group with our 2001 or 2002 Yamaha

115

Here is a picture I found on the Web of where to spray the silicone

"Look past the head of the silver bolt and you can see the shaft."

I have the same issue that started 2 weeks ago with my 07 150 4 stroke. I was going to take it in, but dont want to part with it.

Might give that lubing a shot to see if it quiets down.

It sounds like the muffler belt is worn grin

Dryer sheets I tell ya dryer sheets every time. crazy

I had a screach like no other when I fired up the motor this spring...well the story goes. I found that mice hate Bounce dryer sheets so I was going the annual stuffing the boat full of dryer sheets and thought what the heck put a few in the outboards. Trouble is I missed one on top of the moter when I checked the oil before I started it this spring. That sheet wrapped around the belt and shreaked like no other and just try and get that out at the marina. blush

On a serious note my 115 does the squek deal also, just a shot of lith grease and it stays away for a couple of weeks. (on the water every day).

I had the boat out Monday and it started squeeking again after running the boat for a few minutes. I drove it around the lake for 20 minutes and then it stopped. Didn't do it again the rest of the day. If it starts up again I'm going to call Yamaha and see what the deal is with this. Thanks all for the posts.

Well its a 04 so I think I would have seen/heard it by now dont you guys?

Anyone have and issues with your motor stalling out when you put it in nuetral? Mine has been in the shop 3 times and its still doing it.

They keep cleaning connections but thats not it. I cant remember the name of the part they keep cleaning but next time Im having them just put in a new one.

I have a 2002 115 Yamaha 4s. Had it since new and don't have any noises or any other problems for that matter. I run about 150 to 200 of gals of fuel through it every year and it hasn't missed a beat yet.

I wonder why that is then?

Some motors have it regularly and others dont see it at all.

Mine was just over a year and it squeaks on and off regularly.

Motors made at different plants? Inferior parts from some years?

I have the 2001 Yamaha 80hp 4 stroke and mine doesn't look like that, where else would I be able to spray mine? I just took it to the mechanic and he told me it's above the lower unit (inside) and there is a 50/50 chance if he replaced it it won't fix the noise. It kind of makes me mad because it use to pure like a kitten and I could hear a mouse fart but now it's just annoying.

    • I would fur it out another inch, then spray foam and finish to the furring strips.  No vapor barrier needed at that point.
    • Use 1x2 (actually 3/4"x1 1/2") PVC trim boards for firring strips on the face of studs. The PVC won't absorb any moisture and works well as a thermo break from the aluminum studs. They can be found at any of the big box lumber stores.
    • Moisture is likely condensing on the metal studs and being transferred to the paneling. Furring strips will probably be the best bet with metal studs. You can run them horizontal or vertical and then just attach the paneling to that. I personally wouldn't use a vapor barrier. Some guys do though. 
    • I have a 6.5x14 Ultra Shack. I'm guessing was built early 2000s. Had to tear apart interior walls due to moisture build up. Steel frame, with aluminum 1.5x1.5 or 1"x1" tube studs. Previously insulated with pink board foam between studs, with a thin quarter inch thick foam pad glued to the studs, then paneling glued over the top of it all. I'm thinking the issue was no vapor barrier? I have it all torn apart down to the studs. Wondering how I should finish it, use a vapor barrier such as poly? Or no vapor barrier? Any help is appreciated! Thanks!  -Nate
    • Check striker's page.  They have some of last years stuff onsale.
    • It's been awhile since I've had time to upload pictures. There has been a lot of progress made!  The siding is up and finished! The process was more difficult to manage with the bends and my lack of tape measure skill lol If i were to do the bends again I would make sure to order 2 sheets extra and order them at the length required to wrap the entire house. From the point on the nose all the way back to the middle of the rear wall. There ended up being vertical seams along the sides here, which in hind sight, isn't ideal.  One thing that i'm not sure I've noted is the bottom white trim. A lot of people use J- Channel on the bottom but you can order a trim called a step down. Which works awesome around the lower edges and doesn't fill up with ice and snow.  The trailer lights are all wired up and working. Seeing whats back behind these big trailers always drives me crazy so i bought the ones with reverse lights built in.  The maiden voyage was out into the parking lot and then back into the shop. It didn't fall apart so it was a success.  I took a few pictures of the bending process. It was a pretty simple setup. A big piece of angle aluminum secured between 2 - 2x4's with 2 clamps a bar and a big hammer worked really well. If you're going to do this make sure to add half of the rib height to whatever the measurement you're trying to hit is. And as i mentioned before, buy the length to wrap the house from the front point all the way to the middle of the rear wall.  We would clamp the bar down then hit it with the hammer to "break" the corrugations. Once they were broken it bent extremely easy.  We also got most of the lighting on the inside roughed in. I have 4 110 outlets and 2 USB plug ins for cell phone/misc charging. All of the lighting will run on 12V. I'm no engineer but, each of the lights in the picture draw 240mA so with them all on I'm thinking i'll get about 30 hours of run time on one battery. There will be 2 batteries for lighting and USB and a separate one for the heater so I should be ok for a weekend "off the grid". I'll have a generator as well to run the TV and other goodies which can charge the batteries as well.  I also picked up the material for the interior. Menard's is having their 11% sale until 10/21/17 and also a sale on their 5/16" Cedar tongue and groove. Between the two sales I got the price down to just under $1 per square foot. Apparently, they aren't stocking this specific Cedar anymore so I had to buy 3 different stores out of stock to get all that I needed. In the end I still didn't have enough to do the roof so i bought some Birch plywood to finish that part. I think a lighter ceiling will help the place feel a little bigger anyways. I got antsy last night and finished some of the cedar boards with Natural Finish Watco Danish Oil. It turned out to be the exact look I was going for. From what I've read i think finishing them all before installation is the way to go. Then once everything is up doing a quick coat of Danish to even everything out.  At this point i'm counting the Steps left to go instead of how many I have done! It's getting close to starting the fun part ( the interior). I'll keep everyone posted on the progress! 
    • My bad... How about this?   https://icefishingdeals.com/
    • Yea, I'm not sure when this project is gonna get evicted from the shop area that i'm using so we had to get it weather proof first. Ideally i think the interior first is a better approach. We ran into some issues wiring that would've been easier handling from the outside. 
    • They don't save cap space that is the whole point. The money is still spent. What it allows them to do is go OVER the cap during such time a player is on LTIR. It doesn't give them relief at all, it just allows them to go over the cap. We already have Coyle on LTIR so it wouldn't do any good to add Parise to that. That would mean two moves would have to happen when they are both healthy. The Wild could do that too, but what sense would that make because they would be forced to be compliant once Parise is healthy. Hossa is likely going to be LTIR all year. At this point I doubt Parise will be out that long. Russo did a very good writeup on it last night for TheAthletic. You can also read up on it on CapFriendly.
    • I'm on board with the others, sounds legal to me!  Best of luck hunting! Kettle
