Mercury 125 hp 2 plus 2

7 posts in this topic

Hi, I have question for anyone of knowledge of this motor. I just bought it this winter and was wondering if they are a rough sounding and runnig motor in the mid range and then later at the high range. Sounds to me like its missing on the timing. I put some Merc Kwik Kleen in this weekend to try to clean it up but probably didn't run more than 5gallons of gas through the engine. Any thoughts or ideas or observations of this motor would be appreicaited(sp).

I have the 2004 125 2+2 and mine doesnt sound rough at high range.

Usually when you gun it from the start there will be a pause while 2 cylynders clean out then it should run smooth.The first 2 times out this year it did seem to miss at about 2000 rpm but smoothed out after i put new gas in it.I only run premium in mine

I was thinking premo might help, mines an '04 also, it does have some oil residue on the front down by the steering mechanism that is from previous use, cause its doesn't look fresh, is this normal?

I have an older 2+2 125, I seem to alwys have that oil in the front. I am not sure if it leaks out of the bottle or what. It does not seam to hurt anything.

    • Good question, why didn't they find any more?  Did those two infected deer parachute in?  Were they dropped by a helicopter?  I find it fascinating they could get as far as Lanesboro and they only find two out of thousands.  Like I said, they're bad at conspiracy.    Policing the borders?  How about a billboard, a radio ad, or a twitter campaign?  How about having the highway patrol pull over anyone with hooves or antlers sticking outta their truck box or laying on a flatbed coming across the border on the interstate?    My wealth and land ownership shouldn't disqualify me from questioning the DNR.  It used to be a staple of a free country to question your government.  Somehow now it's more important to kneel before the all knowing DNR and take whatever they want to shove in our mouths?  If this is real science and a real mitigation effort, let's have a discussion about it.  If the DNR wants to stop this spread, why are they not welcoming with open arms feedback like mine when it comes to import enforcement, and an effective PR campaign?  Cause guess what fella, lots of deer got hauled home from all kinds of places infected with CWD by uninformed folks that are going to cut up those critters and throw the brains and spinal cords out in the woods at home.    So yeah, this is either a giant hoax, or the DNR has no idea what the hell they're doing. 
    • I just checked on the fans that I bought, there 4.7 inchs sq and 1.25 thick. I thought they were 5 inch thick but I was wrong. They are 110v and I think I will put one inside on the bottom plate and see how it works. And I like where you have your fishingstar.
    • Slowly getting the outside buttoned up 
    • Yea I had that idea too 
    • I saw three or four huts in the little wet area in the lake vadnais area just off country road F.   But they would probably get upset if you set traps there...    right next to the new path that goes south along the east side of the lake. 
    • In the olden days, pigs were fed garbage.  Trichinosis was a problem.  Then laws were passed so any garbage fed to pigs had to be cooked first.  Problem went away.   According to CDC there hasn't been a case of trichinosis except from eating wild game like bear meat for many years.  
    • From a quick google search it looks like waveinn.com or the bay of e might be your best bets, if you don't want to buy from shimano.
    • Does anyone know of a place you can get spare Shimano Sedona spools?? I run braid in the summer and don't want to run it on the ice.
