View Full Version : Getting a new motor

Pulled the trigger yesterday on a new Honda 250HP, to replace my 2003 Yamaha. Wasn't in the plan for needing a motor, but...seemed like a better spend of my money than chasing a Engine Computer and wiring harness issue causing the engine to constantly pump 2 stroke oil.

Man the waiting is the hardest part :spin:

Just curious, what made you go with the honda?

A couple of things. The boat yard I have been using for the last 10+ years was Yamaha and Honda / Tohatsu. I liked the Tohatsu, it is the same as the Honda, other than color, and was about 1800 cheaper because it wasn't branded Honda.

They we also recommending Honda / Tohatsu over Yamaha because of issues that have seen still in the 250 and 300 engines.

Final decision was Honda offered financing Tohatsu didn't. Got 7 years at 3.99%.
