90 or 115 4-stroke


biguns

Question

I read a review that said the Suzuki 90 or 115 4-stroke is the best. The dealer i talked to has a yamaha on the new rig that i want(90 or 115). Anything wrong with yamaha? Good or bad remarks about either are welcome. Also, i don't care about top speed and think that the 90hp would troll down slower than the 115 on a mr. pike17. Is this right? Thanks, Mark.

I'm pretty sure the 90 is just a tuned down 115. At least that is how the Merc. version is. Low end should be about the same. I'd go for the 115. I have the 115 Suzuki and it is a nice engine - I wouldn't hesitate to by the Yamaha though.

I don't own a 115 Yamaha personally but a close friend has one. Seems like a very good motor to me. very quiet, good mileage. Can't say one is better than the other. Own a 60hp Suzuki myself, but that's not apples to apples. I think you'd be happy with the Yamaha. Good Luck!Bobcat

Really? The 90hp won't troll down slower than the 115hp? An earlier post said that low-end speed is 20% of the top end speed. Thanks for your replys.

biguns,
I'm not certain of that. When I was motor shopping a couple years back, the 90 and 115 were built off the same block and nearly identical engines (the 115 was just knocked down a bit to make a 90). I don't think you'll see a big difference in low end speed, hopefully you can get replies from some guys with each on actual GPS speeds for trolling.

If you are really concerned with low end speed, the 115 Suzuki trolls down slower than all others due to the gear reduction. That is one reason I went Suzuki.

I have a 90 Yamaha 4 stroke on a 175 T-Pro. It does not troll slow enough for lindy rigging unless there is a pretty decent chop on the water. Great motor though, smooth and quiet, have not had any problems with it at all.

For many or most applications in calm weather, none of the motors you're talking about will troll down slow enough for me. However, Suz or Yammy 90 or 115- all combos of these motors are nice. You'll be happy with whichever of these you choose.

I agree with Scoot. Even the 115 Suzuki only gets you down to about 2.2 MPH. This is okay for cranks most of the time, but too fast for a live bait presentations most of the time.

The Yamaha 90 and 115 are not the same motor. The 90 is a carbed motor and the 115 is a EFI motor. Would stay away from the carbed, just old technology and real touchy on gas quality. Yamaha 115 and suzuki/johnson 90 and 115 both efi and both really good motors.

I have an 80hp yamaha 4 stroke on a 1750 fishhawk. No complaints on the motor can't even here that it is running.

I forgot about the carb. difference. I knew there was a reason I was only looking at the 60 and 115. The EFI is reason enough to go for the 115 IMO.

      BW is not a designated Trout lake. The limit is the same as state which I think is 5 bows. Don't think there is a size limit either since they don't breed.

      Rotes, Hi, I just joined this forum and these corner caps are just what I have been looking for. Is it possible at this late date to get a set of these made for my Lund? The only difference I can see is the color of the material. Would you be willing to make a set for me? Thanks, [email protected]

      Any move requires time and effort, but if you turn to a moving company for help, then some of the problems will disappear immediately. Firstly, the guys from the moving services always take care of the client's property, pack and carefully transfer your things to the car. Secondly, when moving with movers, you do not have to worry about the road, they choose the fastest and safest way, as they have extensive experience in transportation.

      Anybody know how much the lake temps have dropped?   Are people have the most success with minnows vs crawlers when fishing with live bait lately, or are crawlers still working?

      Snuck out last night, water Temps down to 54-56, last Thurs mid 60s. Fish were finicky. Leaves are changing quickly here, lots falling. Two weeks should be a lot better in the woods

      I agree with the previous comment, you could save a lot of money by making your website first .. its design .. and then if you want to move .. but if you want, you can immediately ..-) look here: https://digitalsuits.co/hire-developers/hire-shopify-developers/
    • valtt79
      I think that even at the initial stage, you need to consult with specialists who have been working in this field for a long time .. and then you will really get the result .. otherwise you can spend a lot of time and in the end you will have to redo everything .. for example, look here: https://www.softformance.com/services/software-consulting-company/

      The best solution in this situation is to create the software yourself, and then turn to testers who will check everything. Although, if you manage to develop software, then you will have the strength to test it yourself
