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 never got around to scouting it, wish I would have. I spent a lot of time in Dunes and other small WMA scattered in the 601 zone to take advantage of the unlimited antlerless harvest. I know there is some good duck hunting to be had in Sherburne too if I can get away from the idiots. That seems to be a difficult task when waterfowl hunting within a 20 mile radius of the metro.

      Lots of mayflies now.  Larvae were coming up two weeks ago and now good amounts of sheds on the water.  Fishing has been great for those willing to move around and find active fish.  Start looking to first reefs off islands and shorelines as fish are starting to move to them.  30ft for us was good. Leeches.  2-3ft snell.  Plain hook.  Caught quite a few yesterday.  Good size range.  Kabetogama

      Besides there's 3 nice ramps there. 1 on the west, 2 to the east of the bridge.

      Good pretty good. Went out from the northwest side I think Garrison. Made our way to eight mile was able to go full-throttle the majority of the way but when the waves got too big has lower down. My buddy went looking for a drift sock but couldn't find one so we used a five-gallon bucket which work fairly well glad we had at least that. Well we are drifting it was perfectly fine but a pain in the butt trying to motor back up through the big waves. Then after some time sitting out there I had enough of sitting on those big waves and told my buddy that we needed to get closer to shore. The right back was very slow going and wet. Started to get a little concerned when my bilge pump stopped working and the back of my boat started to fill up especially when I was finally able to give it more throttle man the back of the boat was full of water but we made it back I got a new bilge pump and everything was all good quite the experience but I'll be back there again with my boat. And good thing we had back when we did there was barely any gas left in the tank.

      We are headed out in yaks from st cloud to clearwater, with clearwater outfitters. Was looking for some posts about the river, looks like it will be a pretty nice float from your pics

      Any new info on locations and bait preferences? Depths? Reefs? Minnows, worms or leeches? Heading up Saturday. Thanks
