solid mount shouldn't hurt, a well tuned honda is both quite and smooth, maybe see if you can get a little bit of guarantee in as much as run it up or fit and sea trail just to make sure it hits top revs without being harsh, if there confident about it's condition i wouldn't think thats to much to ask

Hi

Hi

I would have thought it would be OK as the transoms are very solid but we've no experience of this setup to be honest so I can't give you a 100% answer either way.

If you want to speak to someone, Give Mark a call at the factorym Direct dial 01935 403181

Jason

Could I come in here with a comment before parting with the cash do a little research,
I recall theres an issue either with saddles or mounts breaking on the 225s regularly,
I know the honda guys get them replaced free gratis but lets say they dont bragg about the issue as is not good publicity.
Apart from that sure the motors are ok.

I thought that it just affected the 150's? These have upgraded 225 saddles.

The 225's have a habit of turning over on an occasional basis, so I would check for salt water ingestion thoroughly!
