I'm considering buying an older Whaler with a 2000 Yamaha 200hp HPDI. The hull is good but I have concerns about the lack of use of the engine. The boat was repowered with this engine in 2000. But there are only 10 hours on it because the boat wasn't driven far to its destination (fishing). It wasn't used much in the last 2 years but it has always been winterized and dewinterized. Anyone have any problems with this situation and what do you think of this engine compared to other 2 strokes? Thanks alot for your help!

If it was properly cared for and started periodically it should be fine but you may have issues with rubber seals and components, the impellor for example I would definitely replace it as it would have hardened, plus I would probably dump the fuel as it would be stale. Internally the engine should be fine, it might blow a little smoke when you first start it, probably worse case here is a blocked injector, that’s about all I can see in my crystal ball, and it really is a lucky dip. You may want to get some advice from someone that has owned 2000 Yamaha 200hp HPDI as this is a very early in the piece for Yamaha in direct injection.

Hope this helps.

I would take it to a yamaha dealer have them put it on the computer then let them do a compression test and a visual inspection.I did that with my 2001 hpdi

I bought a 200 HPDI that was 3 years old with 47 hours. There is a complex set of filters on that engine. You will have to open the VST tank on the engine empty the fuel/oil mix that is in there and change the filter inside that tank. It is not hard to do. Also change the filter element in a clear canister on the same side of the engine as the VST tank. Replace the primary water seperator. This whole process will take less than an hour, however the filters are expensive(about $200 for all). This is a dependable and economical engine, I have put over 200 hours on it this year and am very happy with it. If you are going to change the VST filter yourself, e-mail me and I will send you easy step by step directions. Good luck, Jim
