Thanks Jeff, let us know how the new prop goes! There is really a bit of mystery in changing from alloy to stainless, as even though the dia and pitch might be the same, the blade size and shape is usually quite different on stainless props. So the result is never as predictable as people might have you believe.

Despite that, I will make a bold prediction: you'll get some more top end and revs and should be able to trim the motor out further, improving economy. But better still, the boat will get out of the hole better and general performance in turns etc will be better. But then again, it could be the exact opposite effect! LOL!

If you want to get all scientific, we normally do a table up where we record at every 500rpm interval from idle to WOT:

Engine revs
GPS speed
Fuel economy

Then we do a "time to 5000rpm" acceleration test where we idle in gear, then hit the throttle hard and time how long it takes to reach 5000rpm, this Gives you a good handle on hole-shot performance.

Looking forward to the results!

Default Great thread

Thanks for sharing all this info on the "A" motors, it looks too be the answer to my issues too. Pictures would be terrific, if you could email them to me it would be greatly appreciated. I have the EIC but its short and I too just plugged it into the remote harness. Hopefully I can use it to connect to the SDS and run a long N2K cable to my back bone. Thanks again!

You don't want n2k plus the interface under your hood.
Also the trim connector of the interface must be plugged in your wire harness.
Just buy some connectors, cable and make your own cable.
It is only three wires.

Default Installing LMF200

I have 2-250hp 2007 Suzuki engines and I want to replace the original 2000Suzuki gauges with Lowrence LMF200 gauges. The cables have been updated within the last year. What new adaptor/software etc do I need to complete the installation?

Default C-10 connection

With 4 C-10 gauges connected to network and the networked powered to main switch how much battery drain will there be?
Meaning the network is powered without engines on will they light up and kill the battery while on an overtime chunking trip?
Can the network get its power from a house battery and still have the motors on a starting battery?

Yes, you can power the network from the house battery, eg on a separate switch. Just remember to turn it on first when the engines are to be turned on.

You can also get a Suzuki dual power node to power the network - basically its a smart power source that allows you to power the network from 2 sources, so that if one source (eg the engines) are turned off, it will automatically revert to the alternative source (eg from the house battery would be an option). But it only uses one source at a time.

I am going to lock this thread now, as its becoming too long and its too easy to miss new requests for information here.

If youve fot a query about Suzuki NMEA2000 networks, please read the documents attached to the first post and then, if youre still not sure, start a new thread in the forum.


Update May 2016

Important message!

I am told by US based Suzuki dealers that the new interface cable versions that have part numbers ending in -290 or -350 cannot be downgraded to versions below 2.9.0.

So if you need to use an earlier version (eg with engines 2009 and earlier in particular) get in quickly and find a dealer that can supply the old version cable that is downgradable to V 2.5 or lower.

I am talking to a couple of dealers and hope that they can prevail upon their Suzuki reps to do something about this issue.

Stay tuned.....
