I have a 2005 Yamaha 25 2 stroke. Motor runs perfect but has a little bit of a rough idle but clears with a little rpm change. My brother is a mechanic and has a etec and told me I need to index the plugs so the opening faces the exhaust port. He said it cleared his idle up. Anyone done this on a Yamaha 25?

Some indentical motors are not indentitcal when indentified with the seriel number, due to mid year model changes and where it was originally being shipped to. Example a 50 Mercury motor being shipped to Colorado, Canada, and florida would have had different jets, timming, and spark plugs due to the altitude of Colorado and the extreme cold temps of Canada, we use to have to rejet and set the timming on all the motors we use to get from Canada.

All new direct injected two strokes, HPDi, Optimax, and Etechs all need to have their plugs indexed and yes it does make a big difference, a carbed or efi 2 stroke will see no benefit of indexing.
