    presently have 1990 yamaha 115. what would be the weight difference between it and the 05 suzuki 4-stroke 140?

    and would it be too much hp for a 91 17 standard?

        Is there anything wrong with the Yamaha? Is 115 not enough for the 17? Curious....

        Thanks, Tom

          The Yamaha is 358 #'s, the suzy is 410#'s. If you make sure that your batteries are in your console, you should be fine.

          I have to ask, is the 115 you have on its last legs? I was in the same position six months ago when a Johnson 90 I had let go on my Dad's 17. We repowered with a 2004 115 2 stroke from Eds Marine. The fuel savings was so minimal on that size motor, I could not justify the cost difference in engines. That, and the Yamaha 115 is probably the most dependable engine ever built.

            I might be in the minority hear but I have a 16 year old Evinrude 120 Looper with God knows how many hours on it and it has been the most dependable motor of anyone one I know.

            The key is I run a little heavy on the oil and smear the whole damn thing in Cosmoline every winter. It truely looks like shit but hey isnt the point to go fast and get home when your done?

              115 runs fine...lower unit has a small crack on the foot where the weld has come undone. some other minor cosmetic issues. just contemplating alternatives down the road. long range plan is to enclose the transom, install single armstrong braket, and repower. probably 2-3 years away....let's see if i sell a pint of plasma each week for the next 3 years....

                I don't think a bracket will work on that boat, it would make it way too ass heavy. A transom well may be a better route.
