Suzuki 6 HP DF6ASW2 Outboard Motor
If you’re in search of lightweight portable power,the 52 lb. Suzuki 6hp outboard motor model DF6ASW2 is an excellent choice for jon boats, skiffs, tenders and small to medium sized inflatables. The 6hp Suzuki engine with a 15 inch shaft offers the largest displacement of any one cylinder outboard in this hp and weight class. The 6hp Suzuki outboard motor shares many of the 4hp features with increased performance made possible by a larger carburetor. Additionally, the 6 hp Suzuki outboard models feature an external fuel tank connection as standard equipment allowing the user to easily connect an optional external fuel tank for longer range.

Like the Mercury engine, the Suzuki DF6 outboard engine has gear-driven pushrods operating rocker gear and two valves. The carbie is atop the cylinder with exhaust below, creating a cross-flow cylinder head. An effective thermostat warms the engine quickly from cold and maintains fairly constant temperatures even in mid-winter. The electronic ignition timing advance eliminates the need for mechanical linkages and enables the use of premium unleaded (95 RON) as well as standard (91 RON). E10 can also be used but why put what’s essentially weedkiller in an engine? In my opinion, governments should be drawn and quartered for allowing this crap to be sold.
A nice touch is the vanes on the flywheel that cool the ignition coil via a shroud. A 12volt, 6amp unregulated alternator is optional.
Two fuel filters between the integral and remote fuel tanks stop most contaminants from reaching the carbie and the 1.5-litre integral tank gives a good operating range without having to use a remote. Five trim positions and automatic full tilt and reverse locks are provided. Suzuki even supplies transom bolts for permanent mounting.
The chromed rocker cover looks great compared to the painted cylinder and block and gives quick access to the rocker gear for valve clearance adjustment.
