It true that there is nothing like the sound of a big 2-stroke outboard on full chat, although some of the more modern ones don't have that certain something.
Even at tick-over its great.
When I run my DT200EFI up on the muffs to flush it, ie with no water round the leg, you get the full sensation, and the temptation to blip the throttle is just too much. It someimes draws in a couple of people at the yard who want to just stand, listen, and smell that 2-stroke oil.
I think its the 'crackling' noise. I used to think I'd never hear anything sweeter than the expansion chambers I had on an RD350YPVS years ago, but the Suzi does beat it.
Some might not agree, but the 3.2TD 4 pot I have in the Shogun also makes a lovely 'Crackle' early on a cold morning, so much so that I've been known to have the window open on cold mornings just to bring a smile to my face.
