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 threads or hijack existing threads. Old threads of a technical nature are like a library book, Please do not write in them.

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

3. Do not take over someone elseís thread (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 thread of your own.

4. If you have a question for the original poster (OP) and the thread 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 thread.

5. By starting your own thread, 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 thread. And those answers will be specific to your particular issue.

6. Please do not post to threads that have been inactive for more than 3 months unless you are the original poster. We have very active forums and any thread 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 thread.

7. Posting at the end of any thread is considered to be hijacking the original posters thread which in turn subjects the thread 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 thread asking you not to reply to old threads. The Red banner will read: Please note this thread has been inactive for 90 days. For the best results, please start a new thread.

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

  • Suzuki 140 Hours meter

    Hello, can anyone tell me how to tell how many Hours are on a Suzuki 140 4 Stroke. The dealer told me you could tell by the number of beeps the engine makes. Is this true and what to the beeps mean. Thanks

    You need an Owners Manual, sharkbait. Computerized engines are too complex to remember everything.

    The Suzi DF70 tells you hours by where the tach reads when you first turn on the ignition but before you start the engine.

    Yeah, That's in the Manual, too.

      On the DF 140, it is read by the tach meter when you turn the key on and the rev limit lamp flashing.

      less than 50 hrs no tach indication or lamp
      50 - 500 rpm
      60 - 600 rpm
      540 hrs - 5400 rpm

      550 hrs - 500 rpm, 1 blink on rev limit
      560 hrs - 600 rpm, 1 blink
      1040 hrs, 5400 rpm, 1 blink

      1050 hrs, 500 rpm, 2 blink

      hope this helps

        I have the 2004 Johnson 4-Stroke which is supposed to be the same thing as the Suzuki DF115. How does one check the hours on these? I get no tach indication when I turn the key on and believe I have surpassed the 50 hour time.

        Also, the Owner's Manual says nothing at all about this.

        Thanks,

          I suggest you install an hour meter. Mine works with the key on. My 2003 Johnson 115 4-stroke has 200 hours by meter. The Johnson's didn't come with all the Suzuki stuff. Good luck.

            Thanks I'll look into that since everything seems to go by hours on the boat.
