Just picked up a 1997 Yamaha Exciter 220
Well i just got my hands on a new project. Bought this boat from the original owner. Was told it was well maintained. But i was told the boat has one good motor and one bad. Ski has sun damage from being outside not covered.
Does anyone know of a down loadable manual on this boat?
Any good places to get seat covers to recover some seats?
What wax do you recommend on this hull?
And lastly what can you tell me about this boat? is it hard to get parts? Is it a good boat? anything i should look out or into?

Yeah, if you are still interested and it may be that you have found this out already but parts are hard to come by for sure, SBT can get you motors but seats, cockpit and bimini are a crapshoot....Good Luck, yamahaboaters.com is helpful, the boat is worth the trouble though, I love mine, but have to get the seats custom covered and am going to redo the cockpit myself...

Yea thanks for the reply. I have put the project on hold since my spinal surgary. I plan to just rebuild what i have since i have looked for parts for a while. The crankshaft spun a bearing and then i broke a piston when removing the head haha. So i will need to get a new piston or hone all of the and get a rebuilt crank.
