  • 2017 df100a

    I have bought a boat with a DF100A 2017 and i am the second owner, the privius owner had the boat in brackish water and i will use the boat in 100% freshwater, i wonder what is Suzuki motors rekommendation, i will use magnesium (wich is for fresh water) anodes on the lower unit and allso to the little round anodes in the cylinder head it's that correct ??

    You don’t mention what condition the anodes are in now. A new to you boat they should be checked and replaced if necessary. I run in 100% fresh water with the factory original anodes and up to 2 years there was no sign of consumption, that being said, the leg is out of the water when moored. When inspecting the anodes I would suggest you do a routine maintenance unless you it has been done recently.

      The engine is stil under warranty so the service after the last summer has been done by a authorized Suzuki dealer so i assume they checked the anodes, because of i will use the boat in 100% freshwater i wonder WICH type of anodes Suzuki recommends in the five internals anodes and also on the lower unit, i have seen information that some say zink/aluminium in freshwater and salt/brechish water, other only magnesium in freshwater and when i surf on the internet most sites say zink/aluminium in salt or breckish water and magnesium in freshwater.

      The warranty ends after this spring so after that i will check the anodes by my self it’s very easy no big deal

      What type of anodes are installed from the factory original, zinc, aluminium or magnesium ?? but i am curios what suzuki recommends for freshwater

        I believe zinc are OEM, don’t know what Suzuki recommends for freshwater. Give them a call or email?
