Suzuki 40hp EFi service

Morning

Can any one advise me how often I need to get the above engine serviced?

It was serviced in October last year and the impeller was changed then. The engine has been flushed with fresh water after each use and has been used for about 20 hours since the last service.

Also, any advice about winterising would be gratefully received.

Thanks in advance for any replies.

Jon

It's each to their own really, 20hrs is nothing.

Personally I change all oils and filters (except HP filter) on my outboards at the start of every season.

I used to change impeller every year but do it every other year now.

I don't winterise either, just start it once a month and get it up to temp. You can get some cracking days in winter so I see no point putting boat into hibernation.

I agree...and "winterising" was more important with the old two strokes and carbed engines.
