Suzuki trim gauge - question for Valv or other gurus

5 posts in this topic

I am looking to add a trim gauge, I have a 2005 DF140 Suzuki outboard. I'd like to match the rest of the gauges which are made by Faria (black background, gold trim). Are the standard 2-wire trim gauges compatible with my motor? The Faria web page was not really all that helpful as they don't list Suzuki on any of the pages I visited.

Do you happen to have any of these Val?

Thanks

First of all thank you for the "guru" classification.

I printed your post and I will keep it to show my wife.."see ??" I am going to tell her wink.gif

Anyway, unfortunately I don't have any black with gold trim, I have them with silver (aluminum) trim.

It should be no problem to add a trim gauge for your motor, I believe when you order them they will ask you for which motor, gauge should have 4 wires (Pos, Neg, Light, Signal) but there's a difference from OMC (evinrude/johnson) and the other brands.

I'm not sure he's calling you a guru Valv - the title was "for Valv or other gurus" ... it wasn't for Guru valv... tongue.gif

My new Alumacraft with a DF150 came without a trim gauge as well. I was surprised and thought about adding one but then asked myself why do I need one? I know the motor is down when it hits the stop. I know the motor is trimmed too far up when the prop cavitates. Just a thought………. I’ll by more lures instead. grin.gif

      I scored a set of Striker Hardwaters for 25% off   bibs+coat. I fish early ice alone, decided to pull the trigger on a warm suit that can float if I end up breaking thru.  That crowd was insane. Happy to see the big turnout. All of the TV dudes were roaming around too, talking with ppl and taking pics. Had a great time and I'm happy to see how big the ice fishing community is getting. Just stay away from my holes!!!     jk. Looks like we could be gaining up to an inch of ice/day in metro lakes if this forecast holds.
