Suzuki 2.5 security to dink

Hi All,

For those of you that have a Suzuki 2.5... It's got these really small holes under the mounting bolts that are for securing it to whatever. What do you use to lock your motor to your dink?

Yes they do... about 40% of the time. The trick to not getting bit is pull that sucker like you're trying to pull the starter cord out and you'll be OK (don't do a 1' baby pull). I used to be a Suzuki Tech at a dealership and this was a regular complaint. :eek:
I've found that an easy pull is all it takes to get mine to fire and I've never had it kickback. Good little engine.

Don't know if would work, but have a outboard lock on the 4 hp on my 21 ft clipper. It is a fulton I think, goes over the clamp part and locks with a round type key. Helped with my piece of mind when leaving boat at the lake.

good luck

The clamp handles on the little zuki are very small and I think they'll slip right through the slot of a standard outboard locking bar. They look like small C clamp handles, consisting of a thin steel rod (~1/8") running through a hole in the screw and swaged on each end to keep it captive.
