    Hey Bobby-

    Sorry but I don't think it was me.....not much of an engine guy. Just know that my 1998 Suzuki 225 EFi with 500+ hours is running good and just got a clean bill of health from the doctor.

      Think that was me. Had a customer who had a new four stroke (may have been a Honda, new job since then and havn't talked to him in quite a while), had to be about this time two years ago(?). Hit a substantial piece of lumber while running the beach early in the morning looking for stripers.

      He was PISSED. Engine basically ate the valve train. Not a warranty issue when you hit something, becomes an insurance gig and as I remember, I think he was thin on it and didnt fair well. Engine had less than 100 hours at time of impact.
