Help Tip: If you have a question that has not been answered to your satisfaction in the archives, it is always best to start a new thread of your own. By starting your own thread, you will receive the maximum number of views by forum members.

Below are some additional forum policies in hopes of all iboats members will follow, Thank you.

1. Please do not reply to old topics or hijack existing topics. Old topics of a technical nature are like a library book, Please do not write in them.

2. Old topics should be considered archives and used for reference only. Please do not reply to them.

3. Do not take over someone elseís topic (aka hijack) with your own question, even if it is similar. If you have a question that has not been covered to your satisfaction in the archives, it is always best to start a new topic of your own.

4. If you have a question for the original poster (OP) and the topic is over 30 days old, send the OP a PM, he may not even visit the forums any longer, or may not notice your question in the old topic.

5. By starting your own topic, you will receive the maximum number of views by forum helpers that may not even notice your question when itís posted at the end of someone elseís topic. And those answers will be specific to your particular issue.

6. Please do not post to topics that have been inactive for more than 3 months unless you are the original poster. We have very active forums and any topic that remains inactive for that long should be considered "dead". It is especially confusing when there is an entirely new question posted to an old topic.

7. Posting at the end of any topic is considered to be hijacking the original posters topic which in turn subjects the topic to be closed if it continues to happen thus not making it fair to the original poster in the future had for some reason he/she needed to return for additional information or provide an update of the problem solved which is always welcomed within a reasonable amount of time frame.

8. Please note that you should see a red banner pop up near the bottom of each inactive topic asking you not to reply to old topics. The Red banner will read: Please note this topic has been inactive for 90 days. For the best results, please start a new topic.

Thank you all in advance for doing your part in helping iboats run a smooth ship.

  • The 2007 140 suzuki four stroke ?

    Has anyone heard anything good or bad about the 2007 140 suzuki 4 stroke . I have heard that 4 strokes have lots of maintance to do on them ! valve and chain adj. ect. I have also heard that when salt water used it plays hell on the valve seats ! True ? Thanks JJB

    Hi,

    Suzuki DF140 is very reliable 4-stroke. It has been on the market for about 4 or so years.
    I do not know if they have done any enhancement to the DF140 to 2007 season.

    I have a Yamaha F115 4-stroke (I have used it 4 seasons). Yes it is some more maintenance manuvers involved for a 4-stroke compared to 2-stroke but it is no problem really. I had a 2-stroke before.

    Valve adjustment - easy.
    Chain adjustment - as far as I know the chain in Suzuki outboards do not need adjustment, it is self adjusted.

    Salt water and valve seats - not heard of that before and even if that could be a problem I think it is very rare.
    Not many 4-stroke owners seems to have problem with this if you read in the forums here at iboats.

    Suzuki DF140 is probably one of the most reliable 4-stroke out there in this class.
    Suzuki in general is considered reliable, read here:

    Just remember it is not in 150 hp class outboard, it is more like a beefed up 115 hp class engine.

        There has never been a recall on a DF140.

              Hi beaufort bob,

              No, I use Yamaha F115 4-stroke myself.
              But I have used Suzuki also, had a Suzuki DT65 2-stroke (1991) until 2003 when I sold it.
