No mention of Suzuki fourstrokes? They are supposed to have a good name!

Still my firm belief is you are always better off with the end of one technology than the beginning of the next!

Have a look at

http://www.outboardrepairs.com/yamah...?yamaha#topics

This is a good site with loads of feedback.

Try putting 250 hpdi problems into Google - loads of info - obvious I know but sometimes people DO forget!!!

Cod don't know about all The Suzukis but the 140 is quite are slow. For example we have a 2-stroke 115 Yam on one of the 640s and a Suzuki 4-strokes 140 on another. Both boats same weight if you exclude the engines. The boat with 115 has a top speed of 39.8 knots on the GPS and the one with the Suzuki 140 has a top speed 44. Both engines have the standard props.
May be the Suzukis are good (although will not trust a 4-stroke) but this one is bloody slow and expenssive for the extr 4 knots that it gives. Economy same as the 115 by the way

Whic is why I bought a Suzuki 225efi - last of the 2 strokes - brand new and about HALF the price of a HPDI/FICHT/Optimax/Fourstroke - that is a lot of fuel......

All I need now is a boat to put it on.........................

That was a good buy... Good bye to easy starting, quiet running and good fuel consumption!!!

Trust me I own a Suzuki, that will drink more than a mains drain.

Surely there is a bit of a difference between a 40hp and a 225efi???

Obviously it will drink a lot - but then so does any 225 outboard! As to difficult starting never seen any other complaints - our local dive club runs a 200 and a 150 and they love them - 2 plugs per cylinder is bound to help!
