New motor for the old girl
« on: Dec 02, 2021, 09:19 AM »
I'm stoked. Freight truck delivering a 2021 Suzuki 4 stroke, 30 up electric start with power tilt and trim, tiller steer motor to my in laws shop today.  Replacing a 1988 20 hp Johnson 2 stroke I fried over the summer.  Merry Christmas to me and my family.

Wife sent me a text...the eagle has landed.
She's excited too. Since her last Lupus episode, odors bother her and the 2 cycle exhaust  really bothered her. Hope being a 4 stroke and quieter helps.

Anyone know if all the new motors have built in warnings? This 1 has a high-water temp, low oil pressure and a general check engine warning. I'm really happy about that. No more worries of a thermal nuclear melt down like previous motor. Automatically drops RPM to 3000 or less until problem is corrected. Gives you a "limp mode". Won't have motor on boat until spring but from what I've read in the manual thus far I'm going to be really pleased.

I know mine does ,Merc wouldn't warranty mine unless all instruments like tac, heat ,oil or over rev gauges we're installed...gives piece of mind and does have automatic rpm lowering if something is detected ,. May be a pain at times but price of motor I'll live with it .... FISH ONˇ!!!!!!!

Thats awesome!  I may be in that boat (pun intended) as I destroyed the lower unit terribly on rocks while balckfishing.  I cant find a decent replacement.  The new '22 suzukis are looking really nice.

I swear that I got the only one in the country that was in stock. All the marinas online said out of stock, back ordered, or floating on some barge somewhere. Good luck.
