Default Yamaha 10 micron Fuel filters (90 gph)

Anyone using these?

I'd like to switch to them but wonder if they will spin on to my existing mounts that presently hold Racors with clear sight bowls....and if the sight bowls will screw on. Not a chance at that, I guess.

What is your Racor number? Racor 3213 will accept the Yamaha filter.

Any reason why you would want to change? The Yamaha and Racor are both 10 micron rated. The Yamaha is just physically biggerbut does not have the clear section.

I went to the Yamaha for a little while but I missed the clear bowl and went back.

I keep the blue ones as spares on the boat but run the clear racors so I can see and drain it.

I do believe the new Racor 5510 will also work. This is also a 10 micron filter but without the bowl. It is shorter so may a solution for some who lack the vertical space but want to go to a 10 micron filter.

I'm using the baby blue Yamaha filter.
It is interchangeable with the 2313 Racor.

If I am not mistaken I get my racors for around $15 so are the Yammy's free?

Good time to pass on a great tip a Pro Capt gave me. Take a Sharpie and write the date and hours on (any) filters when you change them.

Yes, it is nice that Racor and Yamaha have filter elements that are interchangeable - I'm currently using the Racors on my Yammy bases.

And BTW in re your pircure - it must be nice to live someplae where your filter bases do not get all corroded.

Actually, the OEM filter base was aluminum, and it did corrode badly.
I replaced it with a stainless replacement that I got from SIM.

If you buy the Racors that say Honda they are even cheaper and the same thing...don't ask me why

Guess I'll stick with the Racors. I must admit I was a bit smitten with the Yam ad of 10-micron/90 gph.

Default Re: Yamaha 10 micron Fuel filters (90 gph)

I started the season using the Yamaha 10 Micron but have switched to Racors. The reason for this is the paint on the Yamaha filters. First, there is a lot of overspray into the filter area, Racors have none. Second, the paint comes off when it comes in contact with E-10 gas (I don't know about MTBE gas since I have only had E-10 since the filter was installed). This has happened on 4 different filters from 4 different boats. Next time you pull off a filter wipe your finger across the paint that has been in contact with the fuel. Please let me know if I had a few isolated filters or this is the norm.

Once Yamaha fixes the paint problem I may or may not switch back.

Default Re: Yamaha 10 micron Fuel filters (90 gph)

I like the Yamaha filters MUCH better. I've had my issues with ethanol cleaning the crap out of my tank. The racor loads up in half the time the larger Yam filter does. Also, I no longer get good separation in the racor bowl (due to the ethanol).

Seirra sells a generic version as well 10 micron/90gph. The yammie dealer said it the same thing. These filters saved my butt this year.
