    2017 R160 gel coat What color White

    What color white was used on a 2017 R160 ?
  2. Taz, On my Coyote trailer I'm not real comfortable on how the trailer attaches to the tow ball.

    My old trailer, when you pushed the lever down to lock onto the ball the locking device that hooks around the throat of the ball was much larger than what is on the Coyote trailer.

    When I lock on the ball with the Coyote trailer, it seems to bearly catch the ball. Not sure if that's normal or do I have a defective trailer.

    Can you give me some input on this ?

      You may want to check your coupler. My trailer sits nicely on the 2" ball.  

      As for a lockout going from forward to reverse, no. You certainly can go from one to the other without pushing any buttons. I couldn't imagine messing with a button when trying to back into a slip.  

      As for going into neutral (and not gear) to increase RPM's, in the middle of the shifter, there should be a button you can press to keep the engine in neutral. 

      I hope this helps.

    Scupper drain holes

    I have a R160 , and I'm looking for those one way valves to put in the scupper holes. I think the Boston Whalers used them. when I have adults sitting in the rear ,when stopped water comes in.
  4. I have a 2017 R160 with the Yamaha F70LA.

    The only upgrade I made was adding the Garmin chart plotter.

    my question is does this boat have the complete wiring harnes to the console ? The reason I ask is because I may want to add an hour meter or trim gage.  The Tach. is the only

    a Tach. does not have the hour meter on it.  My understanding

    is the harness is plug and play.

    please help.

      If the boat can be ordered with an hour meter or trim gauge, the harness is set up for it.  If it is not an option, it will not be set up for it.

    Coyote trailer

    Taz, my old trailer had surge brakes and the brake line was a solid piece of steel brake line from the ball hitch to the brakes. How do they get the brake fluid to the brakes with the folding tongue ? Do they have flexible brake lines ?

    R160

    I read somewhere that the added weight of the 90, and someone seated in the bad makes the scupper drain below water line and water come into the bilge.

    Coyote trailer

    Has anyone ever gotten the store credit instead of the extended warranty ? When I bought my my boat Yamaha had a program for motors 90hp or less , you got a store credit and not the extended warranty. There seems to be some confusion with the dealer.

    Instramentation

    I ordered a new boat R160 2017. On the build page I chose the Garmin 54 DV. When I looked at the final paper work it says Garmin 54 CV. Can someone tell me the difference between the two ? Not sure what happened here, I'll have to ask the dealer. The CV was not even a choice when I was choosing options.

    Automatic bilge and engine flush

    Full throttle said he increased the breaker size for his pump. This is a bad idea...the wires are only rated for that specific amps. A larger breaker on those wires are a fire haszard.

    Boat Wash

    I would NOT use dawn to wash boat or car, it has grease cutters in it and will remove all your wax or protectants
