New Yamaha 40-hp Outboard - 06/04/2008

“These outboards are used for every kind of duty imaginable,” said Phil Dyskow, Yamaha Marine Group President. “Whether used on a skiff, a jon boat, an inflatable or a small pontoon, the new F40 will provide value, economy and performance.”

The New Features

Featuring a new low-profile design, the F40 builds upon Yamaha’s proven three-cylinder, overhead-camshaft four-stroke powerhead. The new outboard features an electronic multi-point fuel injection system that works in conjunction with an electronically-controlled single throttle valve, long intake track manifold and 32-bit electronic control module. The company says that these components optimize efficiency while providing easy starts, quiet performance and smooth, precise throttle control.

The F40 can be rigged with optional Yamaha Command Link® gauges, which can increase customer convenience and control. For example, Command Link features Yamaha’s Variable Trolling RPM (VTS™) switch. With VTS anglers can adjust trolling speed in 50 rpm increments. The F40 can also be rigged with Yamaha’s Multifunction Tiller Handle.

More Details

The F40’s new engine control module also interfaces with Yamaha Diagnostic System (YDS) software to help technicians provide a quick, complete and accurate diagnosis if trouble occurs. Also under the F40’s sleek, new cowl is built-in water separating fuel filter with a water sensor. When used in conjunction with Yamaha’s mini-10™ fuel filter, the F40 gets the same kind of protection Yamaha’s larger outboards have enjoyed when equipped with Yamaha’s external 10-Micron Water Separating Fuel Filter, says the company.
