Does anyone have any comments or opinions on the Suzuki 175 4-strokes?
I pulled up the Suzuki website and found that a 8,000 lb boat with twins burns about 12 gph @ 20 kts. (Total)
Also curious as to any problems inherent in the design has cropped up.
The motors on a boat I'm looking at are about 4 yrs old, has high hours (will verify).
Heard that certain Suzuki's turn a larger prop than others, the 140 for example. Not sure if that holds true for the other models?
Seems weak links are not uncommon in outboards (thrust bearing issues in the Honda 225's, computers in the E-tecs, etc) wondering if there is anything to watch out for in these motors.
