    WORKMANSHIP & QUALITY CONTROL PROBLEMS

    That's not it. I've posted my issues before, and have no belief that they had to work round the clock. Don't know that they are now either. Some of the work is sloppy, and leaving trash (wire tie ends, parts bags, screws, etc. in the bilge is simply sloppy work. Caulk work around my console and fishing pole racks is awful, rub strip on port rear was nearly 90 degrees off on corner, ...

    R222 & 250 VMax SHO

    Yamaha has specific break in instructions. Most test drives violate them. 1. First hour – run the motor at varying speeds up to 2000 rpm (approximately half throttle if there is no tachometer). 2. Second hour – accelerate hard enough to put the boat on plane (do not use full throttle) then back off of the throttle but keep the boat on plane. 3. Next 8 hours – run the motor at all speeds but avoid continuous running at Wide Open Throttle (WOT) for more than 5 minutes at a time. 4. After completing the 10 hours of break-in, commence normal operation.

    R202 bilge pump

    To clarify, it has two modes: 1) Automatic, float goes up, pump turns on until float comes down. 2) Manual switch. You turn it on, it runs until you turn it off. If there is trash in the bilge on a new boat (wire ties, parts bags, screws, etc.), they can prevent float from operating properly.

    Break In 250 SHO V Max

    Yamaha provides break-in instructions in their manual. Available online. Breaking in engine Your new engine requires a period of break-in to allow mating surfaces of moving parts to wear in evenly. Correct break-in will help en- sure proper performance and longer engine life. NOTICE: Failure to follow the break-in procedure could result in reduced engine life or even severe engine damage. [ECM00801] EMU41222 Procedure for breaking in engine Your new engine requires a period of 10 hours break-in so that mating surfaces of moving parts wear in evenly. Operate the engine in the water under load (in gear with a propeller installed) for 10 hours as follows. When breaking in the engine, avoid extended idling, rough water, and crowded ar- eas. 1. For the 1st hour of operation: Operate the engine at varying speeds up to 2000 r/min or approximately 1/2 throt- tle. 2. For the 2nd hour of operation: Increase the engine speed until the boat is on plane (but avoid full-throttle opera- tion), and then back off on the throttle while keeping the boat at a planing speed. 3. For the remaining 8 hours of operation: Operate the engine at any speed. How- ever, avoid operating at full throttle for more than 5 minutes at a time. 4. After the 1st 10 hours of operation: Operate the engine normally.

    R160 Bilge

    Bilge is under gas tank. Lift it up, open cover. No idea why livewell stops filling.

    Standard reply because Robalo won't deal directly with customers. They don't even participate on their own forum...

    2015 R180 tilts to port while docked

    You haven't yet taken it out, hit throttle and holded it at nose up to see what bilge pump does? I assume you have tried putting people on right side and seen if weight makes water come pouring over? Watching through open ports, compartments?
