Does anyone use Yamaha's Motor oil or Ring Free additives?


TSCTSC

Question

[Please read forum policy]

Has anyone tried Yamaha's stuff? And is the Yamalube better that Amsoil Synthetic?

Thanks

I use the Yamaha Ring Free product in my 115 4-S. My cousin is the service mgr. at a marine dealership and he recommended it to me. Coming from my relative I feel its a beneficial product moreso than if I heard it as customer at any dealership. It is easy to add each time you fuel the boat. cool.gif

Yamaha ring free is a great thing. The shock treatment is for extra dirty deposits in your engine. I run Ringfree all year in my 150Vmax. I also use Yamalube and I noticed that it smoked less than standard oils. I would recommend Ring Free to anyone. Good Luck

Do you put ring free in every time you fill up or just a couple times a year. I;ve heard different stories. I've also noticed that yamalube smokes less.

I ran Yamaha products in my old boat but now run Amsoil. The guy who had my boat before me ran Amsoil in it. Both are great products with Amsoil being a bit more money. It seems Amsoil gives me better cold morning starts and burns clean. Other than that both seem to perform very well. You cant go wrong with either.

I always figured if I bought a Yamaha I would run all their stuff in it. Now that my new boat was already running Amsoil I had no choice but Im happy with the performance with it. People I talk to that are running Amsoil say nothing but good things. Then again I havent heard any bad about the Yamalube. Either way you wont go wrong.

Everytime I put gas in the boat it has the appropriate amount of ring-free and stabil in it.

Do you guys know that the Yamalube is a semisynthetic oil whereas the Amsoil is full synthetic. If people feel that both are very comparable in terms of performance, then it says alot about the Yamalube.

BTW, I have about half a tank of Valvoline in the oil injection tank of my Yamaha. How do I get rid of it besides running it? I have not been able to find anything that can suck that stuff out from Fleetfarm.

Thanks

I think where the Amsoil will help out most is on long term wear and tear on your motor. I didnt notice any jaw dropping difference in performance with my Amsoil but Im hoping it will keep my motor running like new for many many years. Like was said earlier they are both good products.

TSCTSC can you just disconect the hose at the bottom of your oil resevoir? Thats how I did my old 25 horse Yamaha oil injected. Just had to loosen up the hose clamp and pop off the line. I then drained it into a old coffee can that I pushed the sides in on.

      A co-worker reported they had some the best fishing ever on V last weekend.  Trolling 6-8 feet in the morning with HJ10’s.  Where the water temps were in the mid/low 50’s

      Those campsites are right across the water from us. Seem pretty well protected and I haven't heard of challenging over there. Holiday weekends they fill up very fast

      My son camped on Hinsdale with his aluminum runabout. Nice site but walking across the hull parked on uneven ground he separated a couple of the rivets.

      Thanks "Skunked Again!" I searched old posts and it sounds like my fiberglass boat might not be the best rig for Hinsdale. Still, would appreciate more advice/input.

      I don't know about either of them, but welcome to the forum.

      I destroyed my main propeller saving a neighbors dock section from ramming my other neighbor's dock. Definitely watch out for each other out there.   Raven77 - on the plus side of the high water, the floating swim platform that you sold me the other year was able to just float off of the rocks that I had beached it on. No need to do any heavy lifting this season! I'm glad that I tied it to a tree as usual.

      On the south end...  A great 2022 MN Fishing Opener for most anglers.  The walleyes and saugers are hungry and the bite is on!  Good numbers of fish caught. Lots of big fish amongst the eaters.  Most anglers were vertically jigging in 6' - 20'.  Anchor up and jig over the side of the boat.  A nice mix of sizes.   The water is a bit dirty on the east portion of the south shore due to runoff from the rivers.  A bright jig with a minnow is the most productive. Reports were also good from the west portion of the south shore.  A bit cleaner water and equally good bite.  Lots of big fish mixed in with eaters.  Some anglers fishing on structure or on the edge of structure where available. On the Rainy River...   A lot of walleyes in the river as predicted, but the current is ripping and the water is a bit dirty.  Those who found slack water often found fish.  The norm was 6' - 15' with a bright jig and minnow.   Typical spots in the main channel were tough to fish due to high current.  The fast moving water helped to congregate fish.  Once you found them, there were normally good numbers. Sturgeon fishing is closed until July 1st.  July 1 - Sep 30 is a sturgeon keep season with one fish per calendar year 45" - 50" or over 75". Up at the NW Angle...  A great jig bite up at the Angle for the opener.  Most fish were caught in 6' - 20' adjacent shoreline structure, neckdown areas and on some shallow flats. Again, a jig and minnow was by far the most common method vertically jigged below the boat.  With cold water, a subtle presentation.  Both fatheads and frozen shiners worked well. Various ways to travel to the Angle. 1.  Drive through Canada to the Angle  (must be vaccinated, no covid test required) 2.  LOW Passenger Service (charter boat service across the lake avoiding customs)  3.  Lake Country Air.(fly from various Midwest locations to LOW and NW Angle) 4.  Take your own boat.  (Safety first, this is a 40 mile ride over big water)

      Greetings all! Our group (two boats/five guys) is looking at fishing/camping trip based at Hinsdale Island Campground or Wake 'Em Up Bay Campground in about 3 weeks.  Can anyone advise about Hinsdale, especially the shoreline for landing boats? (Is it sandy or rocky? Mostly protected?) We're also wondering how busy both campgrounds are? We've stayed at Wake Em Up,  but that was 6-8 years ago and it was mostly empty...just the host and 2-3 others. Nowadays, do either or both fill up on June weekends? (We'd probably arrive on a Saturday, stay most of the week.) Of course, we also welcome suggestions for walleye techniques, depths, etc. We tend to fish smallies during the day and chase eyes in the evening.  Thanks in advance for your help!

      Saturday we got beat up by the wind all day long driving around to the usual spots and didn't catch a thing.  Towards the evening we went in shallow and ended up catching 7 keepers in 6ft of water on slip bobbers.

      I didn’t have any luck, but I heard others and saw people catch fish.
