Hi all, sad news is that my 2003 DF90 Suzuki 4-stroke has carked it, good news (apart from the fact I have to pay for it .....) is that I get a new (or newer one) ...... When I get some time I'll put up some info about one of the two issues that caused it's demise - it is a problem that wasn't fixed/removed by Suzuki until 2008 so may be helpful for anyone owning one of these motors. Am in a bit of a hurry to research and decide what I am going to do. Boat is currently sitting with Bayside Suzuki Marine and I have the option to have a brand new 2019 model DF100B-L (20 inch shaft) for $14600 fitted (minus about $600 for turning my 90hp into parts). Am wanting to know the following: Any strong opinions on which brands are better (Suzuki, Yamaha, etc). And any particular sizes - I can rebadge it to allow for a 140hp motor but realistically I think 100-115hp would be plenty. The boat is a 5.6m (well 5m with a 60cm extended transom) Fisher Centre Console with 5mm bottom, 4mm sides and approx. 120-140L underfloor fuel tank. Any recommendations on where I can get it done for a better deal? Long shot but does anyone know anyone wanting to sell a suitable second hand motor (I'm told there is a lack of quality options in the second hand market and therefore the market price for these is inflated, so I have a hunch I'll end up going new). @tugger - how long ago did you get your 100hp Yamaha, how's it going and do you recall what you paid? Cheers all, will update as I work through this.
Hi all, Just saw this 50hp Evinrude being auctioned. Not sure of the retail price of a new one, whether a good motor or anything else about them but just letting members know in case someone is in the market for one. Certainly not recommending it or the site. Closes in a few hours though. cheers Greg O https://www.lloydsonline.com.au/LotDetails.aspx?smode=0&aid=16380&lid=2223724
Hi all, I am currently in the market for a new outboard as my one is only running on 2 cylinders. Anyway I have found a company in Canberra called "First outboards" which have brand new motors that are 2016 models mostly which are much less then anywhere else. Has anyone purchased from them before? I emailed them asking questions about delivery and warranties and got a reply that although answered my questions seemed a little dodgey. I am trying to line a mate up to go instore to check them out for me. If it is legitimate it is about 5k cheaper than brand new from the dealer for etecs or about 2.5k for yammies in 60hp models. Cheers in advance.
