I don't know - cheap Chinese junk?!

As I say it does not seem to have a 2 stroke, 2 cylinder setting, only one that makes any sense is 'S1'. Idle was correct, should be set in forward gear - I set it slightly higher at around 850 and I'd definitely know if this was out by 50%.

To be fair we were hanging on for grim death with everything bouncing about so not the best conditions to test but at WOT it seemed to be reading 50%.

Will need to investigate more in calmer waters...

After the case/mount splitting as mentioned in post #27 I've made up a backing plate (from a bit cut off a nylon chopping board) bolted to the unit to make it more rigid and re-sealed the case. We'll see how long this mod lasts...

Jeff I have the prop sorted as you know so I've really no need to see the revs unless I have some major change to sort out. So yes just an hour meter now. As a matter of interest in 10hrs it over read 20mins compared to the Suzuki dealer diagnostic.

See what your saying and best place under the hood , good to know they are just a guide on hours but I will service every year so won't reach the hours to be critical but will help on re- sale if I do sell

Cheers

Great work guys, has saved me much time and effort the thread was a thoroughly interesting read. I pick mine up tomorrow in person because I'm only a few minutes drive from the EBay seller Fenlander used.
