FT9.9LEL, FT9.9LEX, FT9.9LEPL
Yamaha’s High Thrust series of four stroke engines have been designed to deliver the grunt needed to push big loads with ease.
The FT9.9L is based on the standard F9.9 with one big difference; a higher gear ratio allows this motor to spin a larger propeller minimising slippage and getting more power to the water when you need it most.
The FT9.9L comes standard with Yamaha’s patented dual thrust propeller that allows exhaust to escape in the opposite direction when in reverse. This gives the propeller access to undisturbed water in both directions for better traction and effortless maneuverability.
Large-diameter, low-pitch Dual Thrust™ Propellers are designed specifically to harness the power of our High Thrust outboards. They redirect exhaust flow away from the propeller, reducing ventilation and increasing thrust up to 60% in forward and 70% in reverse.
Yamaha portables feature a lightweight SOHC (Single Overhead Camshaft) or OHV (Overhead Valve) configuration, and weigh as little as 17kg on the F2.5. Outboard power doesn’t get much more portable than this.
Smart Portable Performance
Microcomputer Ignition adjusts timing to maintain optimum engine performance, economy and power under all conditions. (F8 and up)
Yamaha’s Shallow Water Drive (standard on all tiller handle models except the F2.5) helps keep the propeller and lower unit out of harm’s way in shallow water.
