    Help with the 10 hour service on my 2018 FX SVHO

    Hey Guys. Been a long time since Iíve posted here. Long story short, I picked up a new Ski last July. An FX SVHO. Iím at 10 hrs and according to my owners manual, one which I canít seem to find, itís time for my 10 hr service. My question is:
    1) Is this service required to be performed by a Yamaha dealer in order to keep my warranty in place?
    2) What does Yamaha require be done on a 10 hr service?
    Thanks
    Bill

    Oil and filter change. Did you do it before you put it away for the winter?

    Other than that nothing really. Check hoses and cables

    Did not service it before I put it away for the winter. However, it stays in the garage and out of the elements.

    Does this service need to be done by the dealer to maintain my warranty?

    No it doesn't. Just save the receipts for the oil and filter and log the hours and date when done. Some feel better having the dealer do it because of warranty but I imagine you're not going to use the dealer every oil change. Just keep service records and receipts for materials.

    Add several pumps of marine-grade grease to the the IB assembly (intermediate bearing / mid-shaft).
    Not sure this at the 10hr mark, but historically these don't have enough in them right off the floor. For that matter, I'd make the IB a zero hr service.

    Thanks for the input gentlemen. I'm guessing I should get Yamaha branded oil from the dealer? Or should I get a different brand oil?

    I am using the Yamalube 4W oil (I have GP1800 SVHO), which is the Yamaha recommended oil for watercraft. No downsides to using the Yamaha oil.

    Lots of guys have recommendations and opinions on alternate engine oils. You can read those threads if you have the time.

    I am using an alternate oil filter (Motorcraft FL400s), but the Yamaha labeled Denso OEM oil filter is also OK.
