Yamaha 115 4-stroke question

9 posts in this topic

I have a Yamaha 115 4 stroke and change the oil and filter every year. This spring I was at fleet farm and figured I would just check and see if they carry a filter. I found a filter in the FRAM filter book that was listed for my engine that also appears to be used in ATV engines. This filter is $5.00 which is $20.00 dollars cheaper than the Yamaha replacement at the marine dealer. Does anyone see a problem with using the FRAM filter? confused.gif

I believe others on FM have used the Fram filter without any issues... and I also believe others really don't care for fram filters in general...

But, will it fit and function? Yes.

I just paid $15 for a yamaha filter, I have used oem filters on my boat motor since new. Although I have a yamaha grizzly that takes the same filter, I have used the napa filter and fram filter on that, with no problems. But I figured the extra $9 for oem on the $11k boat motor just makes me feel better.

I have used Fram on my Yamaha F60 since 2003 when it was new.

No problems, never will have any. I believe they are the same filter as Yamaha's.

Save yourself the $20, use it on the price of gas instead! blush.gif

The yamaha # is 5gh-13440-00 $14.20, and I believe the fram # is ph6017, but I may be wrong with the fram #

I was told that there might be a warrenty issue to consider if you dont use the factory authorized parts.. just something to consider if you still have a warrenty.

      Wow was it a foggy son of a gun yesterday. In a week or so the hard pack is melted down and there is a lot of slush out there. The roads turned into shallow rivers but there is still a solid block of ice in between the layers of water!  Lots of folks out there yesterday, it was hard to tell until the fog lifted. We fished in 15' of water next to a little bowl of 32' of water and it started out pretty slow. We had three 8 year old girls and they ended up making snowmen for the first hour lol.    About 4 o'clock we caught our first perch, it was a flurry after that until dark. Quite a bit of sorting to do but we kept a dozen and a half in the 9 to 10" range. We caught a few in the 11" range too.

      Lots of water and slush on the ice yesterday. Ice wasn't as thick as I thought it'd be either.  Spot I was on I marked 13".  Ended up not driving all the way to where I was going and glad I did. Walked about 1/3 mile.  Caught some perch, gills, and a 14.5" eye. Saw some larger marks moving through when I caught the 14 but just sniffers. I was in 20' bottom of a break with some deeper water near and weeds not far.
