Consumable parts begin to wear, and oil/chemicals reduce their efficacy over time. You can have peace of mind with your Suzuki if you maintain it according to Suzuki Periodic Maintenance Schedule, for example, by having periodic engine oil and engine oil filter and gear oil changes and spark plug inspection at designated times. Periodic maintenance helps to ensure safety, reliability, comfort, and optimal performance of your Suzuki.
This saves your money in the long run and avoids major and costly problems. Periodic maintenance also enhances the resale value of your outboard motor.

Maintenance schedule is explained in your owner’s manual. Also, authorised Suzuki dealers, who specialise in Suzuki Products, will be pleased to help you. They will inspect your outboard motor, advise you its current condition and recommend the best solution.
POINTS OF INSPECTION
Performing regular servicing and inspections before each use is instrumental in ensuring your outboard’s overall performance is maintained and remains safe to use. Contact your authorised Suzuki Marine service dealer if you become aware of any abnormality with your outboard motor. Wash the exterior body and flush the cooling water passage on your outboard motor with fresh water after each use.
Fuel can start to deteriorate after just a few months resulting in difficult starting and poor engine performance. Ensure that only fresh fuel purchased from reputable service station is used.
Clean and replace the fuel filter periodically.
Engine oil quality highly affects the engine life. Check quantity and dirtiness of the engine oil before starting the engine. Replace the engine oil at initial 20 hours, then every 100 hours or once a year with Genuine Suzuki Oil.
Engine oil Filter
Replace the engine oil filter after 20 hours, then once a year.
Replace gear oil after 20 hours, then every 100 hours or once a year. Whenever replacing gear oil, replace gaskets of oil level plug and drain plug with new ones.
Check if cooling water is coming out through the pilot water inspection hole properly.

Boat antifoul, also known as antifouling paint or bottom paint, is a specialized coating applied to the hulls of boats and other watercraft to prevent the accumulation of marine organisms and biofouling. Biofouling refers to the growth of algae, barnacles, mollusks, and other aquatic organisms on the underwater surfaces of a vessel. These organisms can attach themselves to the hull and create drag, reducing a boat’s speed and fuel efficiency.
Key characteristics and features of boat antifoul include:
Biofouling Prevention: Boat antifoul is formulated with special chemicals that deter the attachment and growth of marine organisms on the hull. This helps prevent the accumulation of barnacles, algae, mussels, and other organisms that can negatively impact a boat’s performance.
Improved Efficiency: By reducing the buildup of biofouling, antifouling paint helps maintain a smooth and clean hull surface, which improves hydrodynamics. This, in turn, enhances the boat’s speed and fuel efficiency.
Long-Lasting Protection: Most boat antifoul coatings are designed to provide protection for extended periods, typically one to three years, depending on the type and quality of the paint used.
Environmentally Friendly Options: In recent years, there has been a focus on developing environmentally friendly antifouling paints that minimize the release of harmful chemicals into the water. These paints use alternative methods, such as copper-free formulations or silicone-based coatings, to achieve their antifouling properties.
Compatibility: Boat owners must choose antifoul paint that is compatible with their boat’s hull material (e.g., fiberglass, wood, aluminum) and intended use (e.g., freshwater or saltwater). There are specific formulations for different applications.
Application Process: Applying boat antifoul typically involves cleaning and preparing the hull, applying multiple coats of the paint, and allowing it to dry thoroughly before launching the boat. Proper application is essential for effective protection.
Regular Maintenance: Over time, the effectiveness of antifoul paint may diminish, so regular inspections and, if necessary, recoating are essential to maintain protection.
