Good luck with it, lot of good reviews out there on this motor.
Right now, it’s about an 80% weight savings. Group 31 batteries ain’t light.
Interesting, if my track which is 270HP uses 24 group, why a small 50HP outboard can't use same or smaller. For years i ran a small motorcycle batteries on my 30HP and never had a single issue.
I use a riding lawn mower battery and have for years with no issues.
I don’t doubt their numbers are inflated for the minimum CCA, but everything on those motors use electricity. Seems more like it’s a power hog, and doesn’t charge back up well, so you need lots of reserve, because it’s using more power all day, than it could ever replenish.
But, boy do they run!!!
Sounds like it to me too. That could definitely be a deciding factor against it if the buyer needs a light combo to get into skinny areas.
if battery size is gonna sink your boat, u got other problems. lol just get a 1000 cranking amp 24 series battery at academy for $100 and be done with it. they crankup my airboat no problem, and are smaller than a 31 series battery. i'd b more worried about boat setup to run skinny than battery size.
Anyone know which Tiny Tach this motor needs?
This seems very odd that a 50hp 3 or 4 cylinder requires more cca's 850,,,than a brand new yamaha f350 v8 engine with a whole lot more drag on a starter and only requiring 750 cca.
