  • Flushing my Lehr 5hp motor

    I was flushing the salt water out of the motor and turned it into a video for those who have never seen one that was not a add for the motor

    If you want to flush it with a hose, the Lehr accepts a Yamaha flushing attachment. I use a trash can.

      Thanks a bunch
      I will have to order that.
      So far the motor has been great.
      I run it on a 11 foot Zodiac
      I don't no if it's because I purchased the motor new or the idle is a touch too high but
      When I put the motor in gear. It is noticeably faster than the old gas motor it replaced
      I'm not complaining. It's just something I noticed

        I find about half of the new ones I start idle a little high. It's very easy to adjust.
        I should really get a tachometer if I'm going to keep playing with these things.

        This is a photo of my 2.5 getting a good trash can flush.

          I almost brought a 2.5 to use as a kicker/backup motor for my 5 hp
          I still have not ruled it out.
          It's half the price of the Torqeedo
