there seems to be two issues that I could see one relating to water getting into through the cowl. The other to an uprated oil pump that pumps more oil at higher RPM.

Didn't the Fjord rafting guys have a load of problems with DF 250's blowing their tops?

Why not give the piggy bank a whack and splash out on a 300 Etec? No problems with those.

I had bad experiences with very early generation Suzuki's such as the one in the pic below.

I'm sure they are a lot better now but I'm not prepared to entertain them with my money at the moment.
