Hi everybody, I would just like to introduce myself as a new member to ribforums my name is Tim and my boat is an osprey viper 5.25 called sea wise that is powered by a 100 V4 suzuki 2 stroke 1996 and very fast.

Does anyone else out there own this type of engine as i have heard a number of mixed opinions on this unit for instance idling problems and starting, any feedback would be appreciated. Thanks Tim.

Regards Tim.
