This is sorta true but nothing to worry about.

The edge of the casting broke off where the trim guide is (on the bottom of the saddle) never ever seen one break here before

I suspect something got jambed in it and it broke off

Fantastic service from Suzuki though I reported it on Tuesday of this week and had it completed and back on the water today. They even raised the engine FOC.

The engine is a fantastic piece of kit, so smooth with masses of torque throughout the rev range.

It is ideal for us as we run comercial powerboat trips-reliability is so important

Fuel consumption is also good cruising about 48LPH at 50mph

Hi,

Did you have any problems getting the interface cables for the Raymarine. I have just taken delivery of new Cobra 9m with twin Suzuki 300s. Cobra were unable to get hold of the interface leads and it seems that there is no idea of when they may become available. If anyone knows how they may be sourced, I would be most appreciative.

Thanks,


Mark

See my post on electronics, the cables are a bit of a nightmare but the guys at RIBCRAFT have sortd it and all the engine data is now live on the E80.

Can anyone give some fuel figures on the Suzuki 300? especially cruising at 4-4500 revs?

Thanks
Tony

Tony

WOT 97 LPH

4000 rpm about 40lph
4500 rpm about 50lph

On average we run our boat between 4500 rpm -5000rpm and we use almost constantly 50lph. This has been over nearly 300 hours in 2007 on a 800kg cat with 5 on board. This would be at a speed of between 45-55mph

As you can see we usually take it easy
