Question Yamaha YS624T red colored?

While searching for a Servie Manual for my Yamaha "Ricky", I came across this.

Is this legit?, or maybe someone just repainted it.
It shows some paint coming off at the impeller housing area with no blue underneath.

Between this and the powder blue Honda in the other posts, looks like somebody got confused with which paint to use.

I'm pretty much retired from the forum thing, but I check in every now and then.

I don't know much about Yamaha's but if the gas tank is plastic it doesn't look painted and that would tend to confirm it was that color coming out of the factory.

That sure looks like a factory paint job.

Make sure the windows are up before the snow plow goes by !!

It's defiantly a Yammie, but the gas tank appears to be covered with a plastic shroud.

Garage:
MTD....2 stage(modern 8.5 HP) not my favorite
Honda HS622 TA-B - acquired at an auction- nice machine for it's size.
Toro S-140- Picked it up on trash day... it runs, sort of.
Yamaha YS 240 TB "Ricky" latest Craigslist find- on the bench now.

Later old Yamaha YS624 and YS828 have a plastic tank instead of the prior metal tank (I've had 2 YS624T one with each style fuel tank, the one with the plastic tank also has 4 forward gears vs 3 gears on the other one).
If you look closer at the picture of the red YS624, it has a plastic tank just like the red YS828 on the video.

Ah, yes I zoomed in and I counted six notches in the control panel. I would assume 4 forward, two reverse.

Yes indeed, 4 forward a 2 reverse gears (I still have a YS624T just like the one in the picture with the exception that it is blue instead of red) on the later ones with plastic tanks (although I saw a YS624T with metal tank and 4 forward gears for sale a couple of months ago, maybe just the tank was replaced?). the older ones have 3 forward and 2 reverse (as far as I know).

The language is Finnish, according to Google translate. Finland must have red Yammies.
