Yamaha and Mercury 4 stroke outboards are the same
Suzuki Makes Brp 4 stroke outboard and too are the same . Most case the parts even have the same part numbers BUT....... If you pull a fuel pump for a Johnson 115hp it will cost about 500.00 , Pull up the same pump with suzukis logo and its 200.00 cheaper from the same supplier .
All pumps are made one company , one assembly line by 500 underpaid workers.

A beer can will last a long time in saltwater . Put one scratch on it and it will be gone in less than a week .

Fishing line can take up to 400yrs to completely rot
'' think about that next time ''

It can take as little as 5 seconds of running an outboard without water to burn up a water pump . On the other hand , jet skis can run for several minutes before overheating .

Pink rv anitfreeze ....... freezes

There was never a full automatic SKS . You youtubers are idiots , your not selling me on it .
