RIBase
Suzuki DT 100 V4

Can anyone shed any light on these, good/bad/worse?

Maybe a touch overpowered and heavy for our Searider?

I've an identical vintage one on the back of my 5.6m Osprey Eagle. No complaints after 21 years.....

They are heavy, about 150kg I think, so this may be a problem on a smaller hull but as an engine goes, even using the oil injection.....!, I've no complaints.

They're lovely motors. I fitted an early '90s one on a RIB in 1995 and it's still going strong now - never given any trouble and lote of grunt.

SR5.4 is only rated to 90hp mind.
