Default 2001 Yamaha 225 4 stroke

A friend is interested in purchasing a boat with this motor. He is looking for info on this model motor.

My question is:

Is there a difference in the 2001 model compared to a more recent 225 Yamaha 4 stroke?

Also what year did yamaha first produce the four stroke outboard? 2001 seems like an early model and maybe they had to work out some kinks?

The F225 4-stroke first came out in 2002, but the manufacturing date could be late 2001, just like with cars. In 2003 the F225 was completely changed to get the 3 star emission rating, block, pistons, heads, etc. are different. There were a few important recalls that should be checked by an authorized dealer to be sure they were performed. There were 2 for sticky throttle linkage. One was for linkage bushings and the other for ball-joints on the upper linkage. Some early models also had regulator problems and that was a service bulletin. There was also a hot-start condition that required a kit from Yamaha. Have a trained Yamaha tech check over the motor, give it a leakdown test, check the injectors and fuel delivery system, timing belt, thermostats, zincs in the block, and a computer diagnostic check, along with the normal used motor inspection.
