Helps properly support selected outboards while transporting on a trailer. Use one support for F115 ~ F250 four-stroke and all 70 ~ 300 two-stroke models while trailering. F300 and F350 models require two supports. They are quickly and easily installed over the port trim rod on F115 ~ F250 four-stroke and all 70 ~ 300 two-stroke models or both trim rods on the F300 and F350 models. After installing the outboard trailering support(s), the outboard is tilted down until the trim rods start to retract.
The Yamaha Outboard Trailering Supports can be customized for applications with restricted full tilt up angles due to interference with the boat or other components. A maximum of 1-½" may be removed from the overall length to permit installation of the trailering supports. Cut lines, in ½" increments, are located on the trailering support for ease of cutting.
When reducing the overall length, cut or grind off material to duplicate the original end taper, on the cut end, to allow proper function of the outboard trailering supports. Failure to taper the cut end will cause damage to the support and prevent proper support of the outboard.
NOTE: For F115 ~ F250 four-stroke and all 70 ~ 300 two-stroke models, always install the outboard trailering support on the port side trim rod. If placed on the starboard trim rod, there may be interference with the swivel bracket grease fitting.
NOTE: Yamaha Owner’s Manuals caution that an additional support device(s) must be utilized when trailering and not to rely on the outboard’s tilt support lever. This tilt support lever is provided for use only during maintenance, service procedures and storage and is not designed to properly support the outboard during trailering.
