Default Hours on my Yamaha

Is there a simple device I can hook up to my 2007 Yamaha 150 tiller to see how many hours it has on it? I know some of you are probably laughing at the simplicity of the question so please stop laughing and help if you can. Thanks!
Brian

If you have a fishfinder that's NMEA 2000 capable, you can buy a cable that gives you engine info.

On a Mercury, the “simple device” is the Vessel View Monitor. Yamaha should have a similar gadget.

NMEA is complicated to hook up and expensive.

Yamaha should have a "similar device" but I can't seem to find it. That's why I'm asking the experienced fisherman/boaters on this site hoping someone can assist. Thanks again all!

Actually the opposite is true. NMEA is the boating standard to not only connect your outboard but MANY other sensors plus networking FF. The Yammy / ETEC engine interface cable is less then $100. For some reason Merc refuses to take advantage of the boating standard NMEA....they are stuck in old technology.

That's a pretty neat diagnostic kit, HRG
If you have a Lowrance I highly recommend the interface cable that Bobby speaks of. And Nmea 2000 is neither complicated or expensive. Can't really get any easier than plug and play cables
Besides the 100 dollar interface cable, the nmea starter kit goes for about 70. Now 170 is no drop in the bucket but you get a wealth of engine info in real time, not just engine hours plus you can add a bunch of devices to the network to share info to your graph.

Type in "engine hour meter" on amazon, will get lots of choices and prices. I had one on my Opti that was real simple, wire wrapped around one of the spark plug wires, picked up the signal. Worked for several years, internal battery finally died. Had to take off cowl to read it, but worked good. Lots of choices that will work

That won't tell him how many hours he currently has on the motor which is what he wants to know.
