hi all,

Picked up the Suzuki df200hp in-line 4 at the Fred Hall show.

Old motor was a yami 175 hpdi 2 stroke. The yami only had 475 hours since ‘02. Power pack replaced 2 years ago.....but the really issue was the exhaust.

I could no longer take a following dirt/oil wind into the cabin.

Decided on the zuke with mechanical controls (little over kill imo for my current needs, plus I’d be screwed if had a digital issue while underway....atleast with mechanical I pretty confidently get the motor moving in a general direction.

Excited to finally move into a 4-s.....and hopefully this Suzuki treats me well!

Any rec’s On breaking her in would be appreciated

Thx

Thx Shad.

Anyone have experience with adding a permatrim to their motors with a similar setup as mine?

Any handling/performance perspectives would be appreciated.

Thought about putting on a bracket, but I got so many different opinions I decided to hold off for the time being

Got the boat back yesterday, going to take it out this weekend and start the break in.

At first glance....the motor looks much larger than my 175 hpdi...

Excited to see how it handles and performs.

Looks good! You should consider raising your outboard. I have my outboard all the way up on my 2120 and very happy with the performance and ride. Im using a yamaha reliance prop with the f200

I agree....trimming up the motor is tight. Maurer recommended the setting it’s currently on. I’m sure there will be a lot of changes.

The prop is the big unknown right now. I usually run the boat pretty heavy. I went with a Suzuki stainless 15 inch / 19 pitch prop - 3 blade. At this point....that’s the real unknown for me.

I think 2120's or Parkers in general do well with Permatrims... Mine made a big difference in handing. I also raised the motor one hole, but that's a Yami F150...

Fish_Kid - Can you please tell me what Permatrim model# you got? Also what hole the motor is mounted in.

    Can't say enough good things on the Perma Trim I added to my 2120.


    Can't remember the make and model but i'll check next time I'm down at the boat.

    Just finished breaking in the motor today. Going to go out next weekend and get a little more aggressive with the motor.

    After that....I’ll most likely make a call on the permatrim.

    I would get up on plane today around 4,200 rpm....would love to see if I can lower it
