  • Suzuki DT25 ('88) - Remote Control

    Hello,

    I bought 2 years ago a Suzuki DT25 ('88) for my boat but I was not given the remote control parts as the previous owner was using it by handle. I was forced to improvise and make my own controls.

    It works fine except that when I push the throttle to Idle (neutral), the engine cuts off, not to mention that it takes ages to start it as the lever can't land precisely on neutral! And yes it starts fine without my design!
    I assume the problem is that it needs tweaking and that for a few millimeters this does not work 100%.

    Does anyone have a suggestion on how to improve it?
    If someone out there has a similar engine can you please take a few photos of your original suzuki controls (preferably next to a scale/ruler) so I can adjust mine to the right size?

    Yes I am aware that I can find the original parts at store.brownspoint.com but I got a quote of $100 including p&p, and I want to solve this cheaply.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated

    I think you need to bite the bullet and buy what you need. Also that is not an 88. Suzuki changed to the charcoal color in 1989. all the remote control connections on this motor are under the cowling not outside.

      Thanks for the reply.
      The engine Model number is 02503-xxxxxxx, By looking at http://store.brownspoint.com, I have found that these numbers go from 1983-1988. Not sure when they changed colors

      Anyway the point is that I got the connections outside as it can be seen from the photo:



      If there is any way for me to make a working DIY control system I will try, if I see that nothing can be done then yes I will have to buy the parts
