It's weird how you almost double your hp but don't double your top speed. The extra grunt will be nice, l'm sure we can find more friends with lots of kids a big dog and a barbecue to use it!

I just sold my 90HP Mercury for about 2300£ (bought it for 1900£) and bought a cheap, 2002 model Mercury 125 2+2 for 1800£ as the owner is fishing alot and just wanted a smaller fourstroke.

He did not know about the 2+2 function and said the engine was running smoothly. 9/9.1 bar on each sylinder. So it seems like it is in good shape.

Do you have any more experience with this engine? Was this a good engine? I've read good and bad things about this engine. Mostly good though.

I went for it as I made 600£ going from the 90HP to the 125HP, and the compression was far better on this one (measured with my gauge, same gauge as the other one, and same procedure).

So, I am wondering how the engine has been treating you? Any other got experience with this engine?

Gas it not that bad on the 2+2 I've heard. They are very kind when running 2 cyl for trolling, and if you drop 1000-1500 RPM it is not bad at all.

Due me being seventeen, I just had to jump it! The seller seemed very rich. Bought it for 3000£ last year, but was tired of the fuel usage.

ribsta, I would probaly (likely) worked on your 125 obm when/if it got back to bare arse.for re-sale to a dealer, because I used to run them in the test tank,sevice them and them winterize them for resale.

, good service from them though.
