Yamaha F150 noise

1 post in this topic

I have a Yam F150 '04. and am curious about a noise it's making. Ever since I fired it up for the first time this Spring, it always has a slightly higher pitched "whirling" sound when at idle. It's the first season of 3 that I've noticed this noise. The motor still runs great, but is a bit noisier at idle than in the past. I know it's not the squealing bushing issue that many Yams. have. It's not really a squeal, just a chirp/whirling sound.

Is this common for a Yam going on it's 3rd season? Any idea why this might be occuring?

Thanks much

      Found a half dozen good size crappies on Clear Lake in Waseca Sunday.  Just off the bottom in 8 feet of water, minnows under bobbers.  Water temp was 58 on the east side of the lake, which was a full degree above the rest of the lake.

      yepper, almost 30 between the 2 of us in the slack water next to fast water. kinda hard to fish in that fast water when it's moving so fast...

      We were using both, but the number of fish caught was definitely based on..... location, location, location - slack water during high flows is where it's at buddy.

      Very weird. Those little worms in the garden do catch more than little 2-4 sunfish.
