Many thanks for the pics and info offer.

My service manual describes with images pretty well every aspect of remove/fit on the charge components but doesn't mention how the cable exits the "control panel" bit of the lower cowling.

Here is an image of the charge kit for mine.

On the grey leads there are plug/socket connectors and I'd hoped the socket mounted on the front panel then it would be an easy disconnect with the plug on a lead that could be wound up with the battery when packing away. Perhaps wait until the outboard is here in front of me before I order.

I would wait yours a little different to mine it says exit via the gromit shows you how and because I have hard wired mine keeping the cable similar to the fuel line in terms of position and slewing it worked best.i would think a socket will work best for you but you will sort when the motor comes

Cheers

Fenlander, you should have got the Honda, it's got a 12v 12A charging output already, they even give you the battery cable ;-)

Now then don't start!

Yep must wait until it arrives just in case it turns out to have it fitted anyway (that would be in error I guess but odd things happen).

Ha... Just getting in early because I was considering same engine and I await your glowing appraisal of your new motor which may or may not affect my thoughts on my own choice ...

(I'm very happy with my motor and wouldn't notice the difference as a noobie anyway so I'll shut up now ;-)

Do you know I reckon there won't be anything in it performance wise... or reliability... or fuel usage give or take a few pence on a day out... it's just as a stand alone purchase they held their already discounted online prices so the Honda was 125 extra.

But if you add in the charge coil to the Suzuki at 90ish they're getting pretty close.

For anyone following an Aerotec... and even sometimes for crew... that's a given!!

Wet or dry I'll put any speed advantage down to the Aerotec over Honwave rather than Honda over Suzuki then...
