I'm looking to replace the 1995 Johnson 2 stroke on my 1995 Lund Rebel. I was at the NW Sports show today and the new efi Yamaha 4 strokes seem nice. But I'm open to others. Just looking for reviews, ones to stay clear of, and maybe a good place to buy one.

Suzuki, Yamaha, Honda any of those would last your life time. I had a 20 hp Merc. years ago that was also solid. If you are taking it on and off the boat often consider the weight of each. Remember, todays gas is terrible. Run the best you can get.

I have a Yamaha 25hp 4-stroke tiller and I can't say one bad word about it. Runs perfect every time, smooth, quiet, sips gas. Just normal maintenance. The perfect little tiller motor.

The new 2017 25 HP is only 126 lbs and has EFI !
The EFI is huge, for me anyhow.
I'm actually ordering one today and trading in an older 2 stroke.
The weight diff between the '16 and '17 is around 80 lbs which is nice too.
Unless I'm mistaken, this the 1st small outboard that offers EFI. It also offers electric and pull start. And the EFI will work without a battery connection when pull started.

Thanks. Sounds like Yamaha is the way to go. Yeah, that new efi has me leaning that way.

My 2012 25hp Merc 4S has EFI. Smooth, quiet, fuel efficient, no problems. Just FYI. Not trying to steer you from Yamaha. Pretty sure my Merc was built by Tahatsu.

Well now that's interesting.
My dealer also suggested a 2017 Merc but then came up with the Yammy 25 hp and said it's the 1st small motor to offer the EFI ??
I can get a 2017 20 hp Merc for about $1k less.

Not saying your wrong but really, it's EFI in 2012?
I might rethink my order if that's true.

Update: I see the 20 hp is carb and the 25 is EFI.
That must be the break between Carb motors and EFI
The only difference I saw was weight. The new Yammy 25 EFI is only about 30 lbs lighter. 126 vs 157 lbs and that's cuz it's a 2 banger and the Merc is a 3 banger.

That's the only complaint I ever had about owning a 25 4stroke mercury is the added weight from a 2 but i will say having tilt and electric start is worth the extra weight!!!!!I had a 25 2 yamaha and loved it till it lost compression in 1 cylinder.Fuel mileage better with the mercury especially when trimming out motor!c63

Having run Yamaha atv's/generators for many years I'd be partial to the trouble free dependable countless hours experienced. 30lbs lighter is nice if you're 30 years older too. With the technology today I would think most name brands are pretty darn nice.
