Suzuki Parts, etc

If any of you are Suzuki owners and are looking for parts. I found this place online and they have fairly good prices. After paying shipping and no sales tax, about 40% less than the local dealers quoted for the general maintenance parts. Filters, impellars, etc. Ordered yesterday and it shipped today. Will post again if it doesn't show up :+)

Suzuki Maintenance

Just a follow up to my previous post. The Suzuki parts I ordered on Sunday were delivered on Friday.

Replaced water pump impellars, changed oil & filters, spark plugs, and lower unit grease on two DF115 4 strokes this weekend. About 4 hours if you don't stop for a Shiner or two.

Requested and received an email from a Suzuki dealer in the area confirming I can use synthetic crankcase oil with no warranty issues as long as I am at the 100 hour or above. Any advice or concerns on synthetics as I am considering them on the next oil change ?

I've used synthetic oil in three different brands of auto motors (Mercury, Ford truck, GM truck) and have given up on using synthetic oil. I used Mobil1, Pennzoil, and Castrol synthetics. They all caused a small oil leak, usually the valve cover or rear intake seal. Regular oil cured that issue. Just my experience, your mileage may be different.

I also have had bad luck with synthetic oil. on my old 350 in my chevy it leaked after I started using. On my ford it made the motor start to knock when it was cold starting. Went back to regular old oil 5w-30 and it stopped.

Royal purple

I run royal purple in the crankcase and in the lower unit on my df250s. Getting great economy and the oil anylisis done by the independant lab has been outstanding compared to the convential oil. Calm Seas. Capt. Scott www.circleh.org

On a new engine synthetic oil should be no problem after break in. On an old engine, try a synthetic blend first. If no problems then go full synthetic.
