    Re: Ok....Let's get this started. Tell us about your Suki... (TexSkeeter150)

    I have a 1989 225Hp Suzuki on a 1989 Ranger 395VS that I'm restoring.
    After it had set for two years outside in Idaho weather, I pulled it out the other day charged the battery, primed the fuel lines, cranked it over and it fired up in less than five seconds...

    I have never had any trouble with that engine....(knock on wood)

    If the motor set for that long, I would do a complete cleaning of the oil injection,
    the check values have a bad habit of getting plugged and the warning horn will not sense the problem, until the piston goes bad.....good luck.

    That sounds like a Suzuki to me. I still would take it in to have everything checked out and the carbs redone. Gaskets tend to degrade over the years and I would make sure all your oil lines are good too. Welcome to the BBC by the way.

    My rig is a 17' spectrum bass boat with a 88 DT175 on it.....turbo 2+2 24" modified by props plus (serious tip cup added). I had a few issues with the motor when I got it a few years ago but I have all the bugs (for the most part) worked out now. I am also from the eastern/northeast PA area.

    it will run about 60 I believe. That is all I ever had it doing anyway....I am sure it will go faster but it starts getting scary that fast. It has a holeshot that will crack your neck.

    Which one kicked? The Ranger or the Suzuki? Probably the Ranger.

    I've got a BassCat Eyra with a 95 model 150 efi. Haven't had it long enough to know much about the engine. I do know that it will outrun my 21 foot Xpress with a 200 merc.

    '87 dt 150 ss on the back of an '87 ranger 375v. Just got her so I don't know how she runs in the water yet, but sure sounds good on the muffs! Never cranks more than 2 seconds then fires right up. Even with this crazy weather here in NEPA.

    Well I have a 85' 75 h.p. on my Cajun, The first Suzuki I had was a 140 on an x270 Hydrasports and it was great I had to remove the oil injection but otherwise never a prob. Now my 75 needs a thermostat housing (hopefully all.) I am always pleased with Suzuki Performance.
