Yamaha f115 ??

Recommended Posts

I have an 09 f115 and somtimes when I go from idle into gear the engine dies,(somtimes it seems to hesitate very slight and then goes). It starts right back up and off I go but is this a sign of something going bad? Another time I notice it is if I power load and I run back to take the motor out of gear it will kill as it's taken out of gear? Trying to stay ahead of things.

THanks

I had this and it was a dirty connection in the controls but it only cured it for a short time. The last time I changed my plugs it seemed to take care of the issue. A friend also had a sensor replaced in his motor to cure that issue. Im sorry but I cant remember the name of the sensor.

Sometimes my Suzuki 115 will die when I'm going wide open, and I have to pump the bulb until it get hard again, then it will run fine. Could it be that?

No this is only when you come to a stop like when docking if Im reading the post right. At least thats the only time mine would do this. Like I said I ran some ring free through a couple tanks of gas and changed the plugs and it seems to have cured any issue I had with this. Hopefully its a long time cure and doesnt come back.

I have never had any stalling problems while running at any speed.

I think I had this issue as well when I first bought my boat used. I think I did as Northlander said and changed the plugs and I also run ringfree. I don't have this issue anymore. Not sure if the previous owner ran ringfree or not.

happens when I take it out of gear(like pulling up to the dock) and if I try and take off from idle. Not everytime, maybe once an outing. I just put her in neutral fire it up and off I go. I have it's first tank of ringfree in it now, I'll run a couple tanks and change plugs and see if that does it. I appreciate the comments. (never cuts out when I am moving)

Your issue seems unrelated to injectors but I thought I would throw this in anyway since my experience was painful with my f150

If you do not already, I highly recommend adding the 90/gph Yamaha external fuel filter. I had to have my injectors replaced (warranty) or cleaned 4 times in 39 hours of motor use. The mechanic at the dealer was surprised that the boat wasn't sold with an external filter installed since Yami's are known for their injector problems. I have since gone 1.5 seasons and about 30 hours with the filter and running ring-free. No issues at all.

A sign that the problem was occurring was that my throttle control was wide open but I could only get about 4000 rpms and the engine seemed rough.

Something does not sound right. I have the 115 Yammie and it has been running perfectly for the past six years. Or it was, until a guy (mechanic) convinced me I needed (1st) new plugs and (2nd) injectors. Then it ran like a nightmare. Until I got it into the hands of some people who actually KNEW what they were doing. Now it runs fine again.

But I am amazed at ALL those injectors etc. in a mere 39 hours of running! Something else HAS to be going on there.

And RE: the comment about 115's being "known to have injector problems"....known by WHOM? I ran the same injectors six years and never missed a beat. Does Yamaha admit they "know there are injector problems"?

A Yamaha master mechanic from Key West told me the proper solution online in a forum...he also offers sonic fuel injector cleaning. Then I took it to Rapid Sport Marine and they basically told me the same thing. 90/gph fuel filter + always run ring free + only use non-oxy fuel.

I was also told Yamaha has a service advisory note, but I haven't seen it. Yamaha blames fuel quality, not design...what a surprise.

Again, my motor is an f150. But I have read others in forums having the same issues with thier f115.

Okay, thanks for the update. I am going to look into this further because as I said earlier, I have run six years on a 115 without a problem and surely nothing from the injectors. I do not have the auxiliary fuel separator/filter but am planning to add it this week. By now we should ALL KNOW about the new gasolines and what a nightmare they are for small engines. Fresh gas. Clean Filters.

Onward.....into the fog.

You can find more information by entering the following phrase in google. It appears the f115 can get away with a smaller one than the 90 gph...

Yamaha 10 micron Fuel filters

Here's a shot in the dark but it makes more sense than injectors or lack of ring free...

Anyways, a lot of motors, both I/O's and outboards have a built in feature where the engines rpm is lowered almost killing the motor between shifts. This is designed to decrease the wear on clutch dogs and gears in the lower unit. My friend just bought a boat powered by a Yammie F150 and it's having the exact same problem. I thought possibly a fuel pressure issue, possibly a small leak somewhere before the ball or even a small leak near the fuel filter. The other thought was the shift "interrupt" switch. After calling a few authorized Yamaha dealers and discussing the problem he is almost positive that all he needs is the shift cable readjusted. If he bangs it into gear and gives it more than an idle amount of throttle he won't kill the motor. Any shifting done slowly just outside of neutral results in a killed motor. Runs perfect otherwise.

    • WOW!  More wow to come.  😎
    • Great looking plots and Set-ups! My early season clover plots are doing very well! This weekend I will work on the fall brassica plots, have 3 small ones, about 1/2 acre each to put in. Can't get to them with a tractor so will be doing the tilling with a walk behind garden tiller. Going to be a ton of work but this rain will be great to soften up the ground. I will also be sliding a few portables around and I need to finish to more enclosed permanent stands. I usually do all this stand work in April/May but this past spring I just did not get to it...
    • Nice! I will put a few out this weekend.....
    • Next up was installing the floor. We went with 3/4” marine grade plywood. I also coated both sides and all edges with a water sealer just to be sure.    After installing the plywood floor we put the furring strips in and ran the wiring.    Each wire goes back the front wall where I made a little panel. The front wall has an opening for a 55” TV that sits flush in the wall. The little squares above and below the tv opening are for in wall speakers.  This is half of the wires the other side of the panel has the other half.  This is all the positive wires coming through the front wall and behind the panel. I forgot to take a picture of the back of the panel after I cleaned it up and put the negative wires through.  Here is a picture of the front of the panel while I was booking everything up. All the positive wires on the left and negative on the right. My wiring is a lot different than most shacks. I’ve never made a panel like this before so I didn’t really know what to order. The terminals that the wires go into are called din rail terminal blocks the snap onto a little piece of aluminum called a din rail.  Later I found stackable ones that would have saved space but I like how it turned out. Each terminal block has a slot in it where you can put a jumper. So everything that was going to be on one switch would be jumpered together. Things on a different switch would be jumpered and so on. The terminal blocks have a hole on the top where one wire comes in and gets screwed down to hold it and there is the same on the bottom. So once the terminal blocks are jumpered to things you want on the same switch you only need one wire out the bottom. Things that were ran off of the switch went out the bottom and over to the relay board. You do the same for each thing you want to run off a different switch just run a wire to a different relay. The long green rectangle thing on the right is a relay board. Our house has 12 light switches not all of them are used yet but they can be so I bought a relay board with 12 spdt relays. The green square on the left is an arduino which is basically like a mini computer chip that you can program. I’ll explain more once I get to what our switches look like. The bottom right of the panel is for the trailer lights and brakes and all the stuff that hooks up to the truck.  I eventually replaced these normal terminal blocks with the din rail style.  Here is the wiring panel all finished up.  The reason for using all the relays and arduino was so I could use this light switch and eventually be able to control everything from a smart phone. In the fish house we have 2 of these switches which each have 6 buttons on them. Each switch has a set of cat 5 cable running to it. One set is connected to the atduino board and sends a signal saying the button was pressed.  The other cat 5 wire is to send a signal to turn on and off a little light next to the button when it is pressed   Here is the back of the switch. So basically how it works is the arduino has pins on it that can send or receive signals it also has pins that can send 5 vdc or 3vdc. So one wire from the arduinos 5 v pin hooks up to the back of the switch where it says sc (switch common 5v coming in). A different wire connects a different arduino 5 v pin to the terminal that says pc (pilot common which is just the little lights next to the buttons). So when a button is pressed a brief 5 v signal is sent from the arduino to the switch which goes through board on the switch and to the wire terminal that is for that button the signal is then sent back to a digital pin (receiving pin) of the arduino on a digital pin. The arduino has to be programmed to receive different signals on the pins you want. Once the arduino sees that a button was pressed it sends a signal over to the relay board saying a button was pressed close the relay that corresponds to that button. When the relay closes it allows the 12v to go to whatever you want to turn on. The nice thing about how this system works is everything can be changed in a matter of minutes. Say I wanted to have the ceiling lights be on button 4 instead of 1 you just have to change a couple of numbers in the code and plug the arduino into your computer and upload the updated code. I’m sure I lost most people right away and I’m not sure if anyone else would even want to do something similar but If so you can message me and I can try and explain it better. Before this I’ve never done anything like this so I had to learn all of this online and how to write little bits of code and do all that which was fun but also frustrating at times since I didn’t have anyone to go to with my questions.  Not sure If this video will work or not.  4B8EE058-806B-4BF6-8DD8-8FC76BE46BD0.MOV  
    • Everything is going strong now. Been making salsa for the last week or so, have been doing abt's with the jalapenos,  thinking on letting them go red to spread it out a bit. The early girls are kicking em out but the big boys have a bit. Canned two jars of pickles with more coming down the pipe, but I'm gonna hafta start grilling some zucchini,  can only make so much bread.    Bell peppers seem to be running a little on the small side, starting to change colors but was hoping for some better sized ones for stuffing. Snap peas did good out of the gate but are trailing off already,  ya gotta love this time of year!!
    • juicy or freeze dried?
    • Most of the state has been experiencing sunny, warm, and beautiful summer days. The forecast predicts some rain over the next day or two, but otherwise it looks like warm temperatures and clear days and nights. Canoers at Mays Ledges at the Brule River State Forest.These mild and sunny days have been great for canoeing and kayaking and many river water levels are moderate and perfect for paddling. The lower Wisconsin Rivers is running just about normal for this time of year, with many sandbars popping up.Much of the state has been hovering at moderate fire danger this week, which means, in the right place, wildfires can happen. Nearly 60 wildfires have occurred across the state in July, mostly caused by fireworks or sparks from equipment. .
    • Looks to me like a great fishing cart...mount some pole holders on the sides and a cup holder for your beverage and life is good!!🎣
    • i still have some from 2016, most from last year yet but i like to stay ahead. how do they say it........i like to let them MELD!!!!!!!!!😁 that was a 1/2 bushel, smaller batches makes it not so over whelming. especially on a work nite.
