I would always use a new pin. Compare price of new prop falling off against price of pin. It is unlikely I admit but all the same.

where on the suzuki site did you see this prop sugestion and what type of boat did it say it was for.

i have been looking for prop suggestions on the suzuki site and have not been able to find them.

The only thing i have is a suzuki propellor brochure (2005) which says 14" diameter props should be used for the entire 90 / 115 / 140 range of four strokes.

Ive just spotted where you saw this on the website...

Unfortunately you have misinterpreted the numbers 15" 23" is refering to the range of pitch that is recomenended for this engine.

ie the prop should be between a 14 X 15 and a 14 X 23.

hope that clears it up before you panic bob !!!

Thanks once again, Roy.

The stainless steel prop I got from Steel Developements was 14x21 - which is what they recommended for the 115

Bob - have you had much time to try the new prop yet - how many knots in calm water can she push now.

Went out today water a bit choppy, got up to 37.5 knots but was being tossed about so eased off, maybe able to get a little more with calm water
