I talked with Mercury this morning and they where shipping the pro-kickers starting Feb 1, and thier lead time on motors = 4 weeks (20 working days). They also said that the long shafts are out there, so my motor should come in during Mid March.
I should be OK for the 5 year warranty, all they have to do is register the motor (with the serial number) by the end of March and itís good for the promotion.
Iíll update as the thread as things progress, currently the motor is on order..
