yt 624

Just realized my Yamaha is a 2016 yt624, not a ys624, just received it yesterday, its a great and easy machine to use, lot faster in reverse and forward then any of the 10 varoius honda blowers I had last 20 years, just ordered the bucket extension to go on from cormier equipment like I had on all the hondas, it lists the extensions for Hondas only but will fit the yamahas,throws the snow pretty far, even in wet snow conditions we had here in Nl yesterday,the chute never clogged once, I find she bogs a little, not much going through deep snow but not near as boggy as my neighbours new 2016 honda 724, hondas new one no matter what size are very boggy under load and sometimes will stall, you have to go very, very slow going through deep snow, my neighbour was very impressed on how the Yamaha,with a little smaller engine works much better then his, he said if he had of known he would of had a yamaha instead of the 2016 724, and is $900 cheaper, I took the side cover off and had a look at the carb just then ,I want to get it revved up just a little more rpms, I can move the governor to make it rev right up while throttle is in full position but can anyone tell me the process to adjust a cable to get a few more rpms out of it, do I have to take the gas tank of or can I get at the linkage just by taking right side cover off

Thanks for the review and pics. After reading some recent new Honda reviews I'm still leaning heavily towards a new Yamaha.

Would have loved to see a side by side comparison video of both machines in action at the same time.

Adjustment procedure is listed in here, I believe 3600 RPM is what you want it at. (section 3-28,29) and yes you have to remove Gas tank and maybe muffler. When my Yamaha was new it also appeared to be less powerful than my old one, now it works fine and you can hear it bark a lot louder when it gets into heavier snow but bulls right through it.

I envy 'old blue


LOL. In the *tool* catagory, my second envy of the 'old blue would be a line of tilesaws made by a company called Target Tilematic

So it bogs down now and you want to add a bucket extension, did you also order an 8HP engine to go with that? I'd rather make 2 passes, and play in the snow a bit more.

Its was a bit boggy, but theres approx 10 hours on it now and seems a lot better now, plus yesterday when I got it, the snow was heavy,wet and it was warm out, today its in the minus and its working like a top, but the honda next door ,the new 724 is still boggy as anything, hes not pleased, was pretty impressed impressed with mine after he used for half hour

Print the pages from 3-26 to 3-33 it says how to adjust the speed and governor.
