Sounds like the battery to me. How did you winterize it? was the fuel empty? was the battery disconnected and re-charged? It could be several problems, but easy to diagnose. need more clarification

Yamaha Exciter jetboat: eng stops when warm, not overheating

I have a 1998 Yamaha Exciter jet boat as well and am having a similiar problem. I just took it in today and the mechanic believes that it may be the oil pump failing which causes the pistons to stick and not lube the engine properly, thus causing overheating and eventuallly stall. The one motor sounds beautiful and the other sounds unhealthy. He checked compression and it seemed fine and it has new plugs. Maybe this is the same problem you are having...Hope this helps...

I have a 50hp 2007 yamaha 2 stroke

Did you change your fuel? If you are trying to use the same fuel from last year without being stabilized then that would cause your problem. I know that you already had your carbs cleaned but it sounds like something els got plugged up in them. If you have fresh fuel then I would take the carbs back apart and check your jets in the carb to ensure that there is nothing obstructing any of the orifaces in the jets. I am a boat mechanic and I have had to take carbs apart 2-3 times sometimes if they were varnished really bad to make sure I got all of the gunk out.

After siting for winter, just bought new battery. engine is turning over but wont start. Radio, vhf. depth sounder, horn, etc is not working. checked all the fuses and there ok .any suggestions. I have a...

If you put a new battery in the boat then look around the battery and make 100% sure that you hooked up ALL of the accessory wires to both NEG and POS posts. Sounds dumb but I have come accross it multiple times. As for the engine, if it turns over but will not start then I am about 80% sure that you need to have your carbs cleaned. Fuel sits in the bowl of the carb, then after about 30 days starts to varnish, after varnish it starts to look like mollasses. Then spring comes around and you squeeze the fuel bulb and crank it over forcing that old **** into your idle jets. That is why it is really a good idea to have your carbs fogged before you store your boat for the winter.

Yamaha ar 230 engine middle lightcome on in on both tach and shut

With the newer yamaha jet boats your route of easiest resistance is gonna be to take the boat to a Yam dealer so they can put a diagnostic machine on it. Alot of sensor problems can be solved much easier and cheaper after running the diagnostic and pinpointing exactly what the issue is. The lights on the dash are for high temp and low oil. If you checked the water temp and it seemed ok, check your oil levels.
