Aloha everyone! We're currently repower in our boat with suzuki outboards new 2017s. Just curious if anyone has any feedback on the engines? As far as maintenance and reliability and even how they strike. Hopefully we will get strikes with the new motors hahah. Mahalo!

Got twin 115 Suzuki on my boat. Brand new, only 350 hours on em. They purrrrrrr. I get a heavy boat and they push her good. Heard a lot of good things over the past 5 years so I went with those on the new boat. Fish seem to like em. Go have fun and create alittle carnage for me!

howzit Laakea i have a 4 cyl 175 4 stroke for 5 years nearly 800 hours. i have had no issues. maintain regularly & keep it clean. main thing is to get someone you trust to do the maintenance or learn from someone who is familiar w/the engines. previously had a Mercury that comes w/Pro Line. this Suzuki is by far better. good luck.

Don't forget to change out the internal zincs on the head. Buy a real shop manual and it makes maintenance real easy. Love my Suzukis
