Two strokes more reliable than four strokes?I thought it was the other way round.

Slightly off topic here so apologies. I am in the process of building 3 slightly different small 4 stroke outboards, all based on 50 - 57cc honda vertical crank engines. One with a centrifugal clutch, one direct drive and one with a forward and neutral gear. I use the standard oe silencer that came on the engine. They actually run quieter than the under water exhaust system and run better and with more power as there is less back pressure caused by the exhaust being immersed in the briny. Any way my point being is in my opinion Honda inthere attempt to improve things have actually taken a backward step. KISS - keep it simple stupid!!
Sorry for hijacking the thread

Thanks for all the comments guys.

I have just bought a Suzuki 2.5 with a Outboard trolley.

SUZUKI DF 2.5 HP FOUR STROKE OUTBOARD ENGINE AND TROLLEY BOAT MOTOR | eBay

I did like the Yamaha but the weight is a issue for me, This is ideal for mobile use and thats what I wanted.

Also read so many good reviews about both Suzuki and the Yam.

I am happy with the deal I got, and with a trolley included with free delivery I just could not resist.

Well done. Interesting thread - do us a favour and come back after you've used it a couple of times and give us your thoughts! So often these threads fade away just when you get interested.

It's like a novel with the last few pages torn out. We'll want to know did you and the wee Suzi live happily ever after...

To OP

Congrats on your purchase and remember to flush it out when/ if you can. You seemed to get a great deal so well done and as requested by others plese Finnish the story off by letting us know how you get on and if you get it serviced etc.
