The bracket and clamping assembly is extremely robust, however, all mechanical fulcrums and moving, interfacing components will wear in time - especially in extreme salt water conditions.
We hold many parts for these engines, even limited numbers of hard to find components that have been out of production for many years.
On top of our comprehensive stock we offer an international shipping service to more than sixty countries globally.

Add as many parts as you wish to the same shopping cart, a new grease nipple 9370006M03 & cap 6634511900 for example (you will be glad you did to enable correct levels of lube), and still only pay the same single fixed price shipping cost.
Please be aware that this component may fit other Yamaha products.
