I was at a dealer yesterday and asked about the 140hp. They only had one flyer on the engine, but they ran a copy of the spec sheet

--4 stroke DOHC 16 valve
--Multi port sequential elctronic ful injection
--4 cylinders
--410 lbs
--WOT 5600-6200
--Alternator 12V 40 A

The DF140Z counter rotation model should be out soon.
I can find out more if anyone wants more info.

Check out Allisonmarine.com. They have great prices on motors, especially Suzuki's! The 2002 DF140 is priced right around $10,000.

Even though it is 2001 and the internet has been in operation for years, this dealer is still a rare find. He is advertising "loose" outboard engines on the internet with prices! That is worth a hyperlink directly to his page.

This is how outboard engines should be sold, in an open, competitive market.

friend paid $6700 for his 2001 115's. With the $300 rebates. They were not available in CR but it was not an issue with hydraulic steering. Handles great! Local add down here had "engine only" 60hp for $4500.

Larry; Suzuki DF140
cost- $8249.00 20"
and- $8299.00 25"
comes with tac.
and I think the wire harness
no prop on this model they are about $150.00 bucks
allso need key switch and shift box. I got new ones for my boat they aren't to much $

the owner didn't know when they would be availible, but he asked me if he could call me back, he would call Suzuki and find out.
when he called back he said the DF140 would be availlble on 1/1/02
he has 10 on order, and would be getting the first ones. our baot show in san diego is 1/5/02...
now the giveme six warranty ? ?
Suzuki has done this for two years now. he said they do not tell him intell the first of the year. becouse that might stop some one from buying one in mounths befor. and he could not say if Suzuki would offer it this comeing year.
the giveme six runs from jan. to the end of march if they do it again.
the $ looks good don't you think? I realy like my DF70 356 hrs on it all ready.
Kim.

Kim,

It looks really good! My repower decision seems to be between the single Big Block Yamaha, or 2 DF140's. And if I could actually get 2 DF140's for just a tad over the Yamaha F225, and nearly on par with the F250, wow! That would be GREAT! And if the 6 month warranty happens in Janauary, I do not think I will find a better deal.

Thanks so much Kim. I really appriciate it. I guess I should find a dealer out here and then just wait until Janauary. What do you think?


Thanks VERY much! Larry Sherman

Larry I like twins but each have there drawbacks (such as two oil&filter changes) // one...
is the Yamaha ful injected? this what made my choice Suzuki. and the six year warranty. do you realy need that much horse power?
what ever you do Yamaha or Suzuki
I sure would like to see the expresion on your face the fist time you start it up and run it with 4 strokes!!!

Me to kim (see my face that is!). I'm on the fence as to what to do. I currently have a 1985 Johnson 235 and am just trying to plan ahead. I've put a lot of work into my boat, and re-powering is one of the next logical steps. The boat is an Outrage 25. Lhg cautioned me that a single 140 might not be enough engine to get her up on plane. But the price point seems great.

Decisions, decisions.

115 barely planes my buds 23 Seacraft which is not light. No twin setup will plane easily on 1 engine. Would you run it wide open on 1 poor motor just to get in fast? I would'nt so that would be a mute point, I just want to get home. A kicker sure as heck won't plane you either but great insurance.

So do you think the twin 140's would be a good rig for my 25? what bracket would you use, if any?
Bigshot posted 08-15-2001 11:10 AM ET (US)     Profile for Bigshot  Send Email to Bigshot     
None!
LarrySherman posted 08-15-2001 11:33 AM ET (US)     Profile for LarrySherman  Send Email to LarrySherman     
None what? backet? What about the rig? No thoughts?
Bigshot posted 08-15-2001 01:55 PM ET (US)     Profile for Bigshot  Send Email to Bigshot     
no bracket unless you really want one. The twins are a great package and depending on price dif I would even go 115's. The 115's will be about the same performance as your single and way better milage. If the 140's are same weight and only a grand or so more a opo, go with the 140's.
