2 strokes? ban 'em all I say... upstart little feckers! Oh, when I say "all", obviously I'm not talking about any 2 strokes that I may , or may not, own...just those that use less fuel than a big 4 stroke.. damn optimax owners.. burn 'em, that's what I say...

Hmmm, now Suzuki don't do a fuel injected 2-stroke, do they...

Sounds like Ribex should have been called Fibex!

Interesting point, isn't it? I'm not aware of the market share occupied by Direct Injection 2-strokes, but I can't help thinking Suzuki must be missing out on a fairly sizeable chunk of the above 100hp outboard engine sector.

Jono, you have ceased to make any sense at all. Richard is not an outboard engine dealer. May I suggest you recork the bottle and start again tomorrow
