Just removed great running 225 Opti's with 1000 hours need to sell them to defer cost of re power. No reasonable offer refused. I want these motors gone............

reason for repower? Basically, if they run so shit hot, why are you selling?
he just purchased the boat and upgraded to brand spanking new G2 300's... this is his keep forever boat and wanted no hassle operation for as long as possible and new technology fuel savings... if you look at his posts (do a little research) you will see why he is selling... are you interested in these motors??

Pre 2002 optimax outboard are junk. Do a little research.
I had a 2000 that ran like a raped ape for 2300+ hours the I sold the boat to a friend and it still runs great at over 2600 hours... ALL brands have there problems... and yes like you said do your research... you will find out what they might be and operate/care/maintain the motors in the proper fashion!

That's not correct. There were many issues with the 99-01 Optis but there were also many very good motors that came out of those years and it seems like if you didn't have any problems in the first 300-400 hours, you more than likely got one of those great motors.

Not sure why so many people are jumping into this post just to try to bash this deal.

Interested buyers can get a diagnostic/computer check out that will verify the motors' complete history, any faults, problems, issues whatsoever.

Sorry but there Is no such diagnostic/computer check that tells a outboards COMPLETE HISTORY. I'm not bashing. I've owend a couple of those black things myself and I wouldn't want any member of this site making the same mistake. Do your research before buying any boat or outboard. Glws

You can say, "I'm not bashing" all you want but you are bashing these motors. Go read the rules and don't come back. No one needs your anecdotal evidence.

Just keeping it real!
Thr real part is that these are good motors, and you are bashing my attempted sale. That being said there were many incidents with the 2000-2001 series Opti's having rods thrown through the sides of engine blocks and they were have a hard time figuring out why, to the point of arrested sales to tackle the problem. What they did not tell you it was, the Bass Tournament guys with the maximum allowed HP (225) on their lake boats that were firing up the motors on the starting line and slamming the throttle to WOT before the engines even had time to develop stabilized internal running temps. Even with that, if you had a motor that you could not grenade within a couple of hundred hours, these motors run for thousands of hours. 3-5 thousand hours is not unheard of. Why I never cared for Opti's is simple, I have always preferred motors without an air pump and I am biased towards Johnson /Evinrude. My boat is rated for 600hp. Two (2) Opti's at 225 each, only makes 450HP and that is the only reason I removed these PERFECTLY running engines...........Now somebody buy them, I need the money for my new engines!!
