my list based on how many see and what we need to do to them etc
distant 3rd tohatsu none tdli 2 strokes i.e. the older models
yam wins 1st and 2nd place as the other are so far away from build quality that the others should not be listed even on the same page as the yam.
reasons. again this is based on what we see and the fact that yam and honda have the commercial market sown up here and we see both of these with 5-8000 hours on them and no that is not a missprint. Yamaha has been working with these guys for longer and now sell direct to a lot of commercial places hence why they get top spot by a whisker as they have a longer possitive reputation.
Honda offer the best warranty and can be self serviced by a competent mechanic so all you need to buy is service packs. Honda are also cheaper on most models and as I have said all ready have the extra year warranty that even yam dont offer and this includes commercial companies.
