Good Day all,

So I found a cabin boat and bought it.....::slo

Boat has an 75AET Yamaha motor on. Those bulletproof two strokes, yes those.

Ok so upon phoning dealers etc several (Yamaha Dealers) found out the motor is an grey import.

Apparently tracked to around 1983

Does anyone know theyre story?

On Boats.net only from 1984 listed and NO 75 were even listed.....:X

No Issue currently, just concerned about parts and would like to know where these came from, just curious.

See a few parts and old parts on ebay.

Seem the states also had them....._seal1_

You will find parts but any 34 year motor will be trickier than a 5 year old motor
