Default 2005 Stratos 386Xf with 140 Suzuki

Anyone run this setup - wondering what hole the motor is mounted on for this boat?

Wondering also what pitch prop most people use?

Just buying boat and wondering if I should make some adjustments before spring.

Thanks,
Shawn

Normally the 3rd hole up and the prop of choice is the "Suzuki 20 pitch Stainless prop."

The Suzuki prop is larger in diameter than many other props but works perfectly with the gear ratio that is in this engine.

Good luck

I wouldn't change anything until you try it and see how it runs with a normal load for you.

A person can scroll through these performance reports by Suzuki, checking the prop for each of the tests.

Most owners settle on a SS14 x 20.

Suzuki doesn’t make props so the Suzuki props are rebranded. Last I heard they are either Powertech or Performance Turbo 1(now owned by Yamaha). Buy either and pay about 50% the price of a Suzuki branded prop. Of the two brands, the Turbo 1 is the more consistently manufactured so I recommend going that direction. I have three of them including a 14 x 22 that is too much for my rig and will sell.

The DF 140 is very sensitive to prop configuration in order to get the desired 6200 RPM at WOT. Unless you are lucky plan to have the prop worked to get it perfect.

Mine is set at the 3rd hole.

If you want to go aluminum you can cross reference the Suzuki prop number to Michigan props and pick one up for about $100.
