I have the ability to buy a brand new 2003 Suzuki 225 EFI 2-stroke for a great price but don't know anything about the quality of these motors. Does anyone have any advice or comments re: repowering a 1982 Outrage 22 with the Suzuki 225hp 2-stroke? Dependable? Any unique problems I should be aware of? Thanks!

I don't know if it is still a problem but some Suzukis were known for corrosion problems. Otherwise they are great motors. Some people stay away from them due to not having a local dealer and parts source.

Great engine and since Zuki went to ALL 4 strokes you can get them for about $7500. My friend ran a 200 for years and now runs twin 115's and a 60. I have owned 3 of them and still have a 70hp. Great engines. They also come with a polished SS prop, make sure you get it.

Hudsojo -

Not a lot to tell you. I repowered my 1990 Revenge 22 WT with a 2003 225 Merc Optimax. I looked at the 2003 Suzuki 225 EFI, and it had the best price, by far ($2,500 cheaper than the Optimax). Talking to local folks who had the Suzuki 225 or a Suzuki 200, they said it was VERY thirsty, but ran GREAT.

Guess it comes down to what you want to get. Good price, fuel economy, service, etc.
