2 Smoke 2.2hp Suzuki egg beater

To go along with my recently acquired Seago Eco 2.6m I purchased a 2002 Suzuki 2.2hp 2 stroke.

I already own a 2010 Suzuki 2.5hp Fourstroke.
Was going to use the 2.5hp as the main engine and the 2.2hp as an auxiliary.

It has had the gear oil changed and a new plug and seems to be running sweet - goes first pull as well.

Anyone got any knowledge of these little engines and what to look out for?

Looks great. You might prefer it over the 4 stroke for weight and the fact it uses same fuel mix.

I've got one. I've removed the stop switch and fitted a killcord instead. They're 50:1 premix.
Don't try and plane with it-the impeller is on the propshaft so if you go too fast with them they can't pick up enough water and start getting warm.
Cracking little motors though-had mine a few years now and I wouldn't sell it. It recently pushed Whisper 6 miles along the Thames withou missing a beat.

Hi Nos4r2.
It does seem like a decent little unit.
I must admit it had crossed my mind to fit a kill cord in place of the switch particularly as the engine has no neutral gear - I think I will get it done sooner rather than later.
How hard / expensive was it to replace the switch.
I also read somewhere that it was 100 : 1 premix - did think that was quite low.
I've put 20 ml of 2 stroke oil in the tank just to be sure.

Funnily, I described it in PM last week!


It cost about 15 quid from memory.
I've installed a standard Yamaha kill cord on mine in place of the stop button. It's a really easy swap-you remove the stop button and fit the Yamaha kill unit through the hole left by it . I did it a few years ago, so can't remember if I had to make the hole larger.

What you do need to be careful of is that the front plate on the DT2.2 is too thick to put a retaining nut onto the killcord switch, so you have to make sure it's a tight fit once it's in-maybe even epoxy it in. Mine's such a tight fit I had to turn it to get the screw threads to engage and it's stayed solid ever since.

Wiring it in is simple as long as you only use a 2 wire kill unit. Just wire it straight to where the stop button was wired to.

Cheers for that Nos4r2.

How thick is the plastic front plate of the engine.
Micht need to shave a few mm off of it if it is too thick to get retaining nut tightened.

Quite thick. As long as the killcord will go on you'll be fine-you can always epoxy the switch in.
