How to Find Yamaha Outboard Parts by Year

No two Yamaha outboard models are ever quite the same as each year Yamaha subtly changes and improves its motors. Some outboards may share a few common parts but many of the parts and components in an outboard will be unique to that year's model. Because of this it is essential you know your outboard's year of manufacture and model name before you start buying replacement parts for it, otherwise there's no guarantee the new parts will fit. Your Yamaha outboard's model name and year of manufacture are stamped on an identification plate that is attached to the transom clamp bracket. At the top of the plate is the outboard's model name comprised of letters and numbers. These digits indicate the outboard's basic engine type, horsepower and variant.

On outboards produced after April 2005 Yamaha stopped designating outboards by their year of manufacture and instead designate them by generation, starting with the letter A. New models/generations are indicated with the following letter of the alphabet between the digits indicating the horsepower and the control/tilt method.
