Suzuki 115 For Stroke Question

5 posts in this topic

I have a 2001 Suzuk 115 4 stroke. I have not change the plugs in about 3 years. Heck, I'm not even sure they need changing but I bought 'em so why not. My problem is I can't seem to pull the rubber boots/wire covers off. I pulled real hard but I'm afraid to yank any harder or will damage something. Any ideas?

I would twist / rotate them while you pull. They do fit pretty tight and are pretty long.

They are very long, and it's a good idea to put some electrical grease on the boot when your done. The bottom plug is a real pain in the rear to change out, there is no clearance. You need the long tool that comes in your kit to change them out.

Not trying to hijack the thread, but anyone have a rule of thumb of how often plugs should be changed? I've been told every spring, after running the boat for the first time.

I'm not aware of any rule of thumb... but evey year in my opinion is a bit much... maybe every other year, but every year is a bit much.

    • What do you have against Japanese Beetles?   Diversity is good.   We need all nationalities of beetles.  Even VW beetles.   Asian Lady Beetles, everything.  All nationality and gender identity beetles. 
    • Tysons chicken tender, Top sirloin steak, pork chop, burgers seasoned to taste - crispy crowns, tutor tots, fries - beer batter shore lunch Walleye, Crappie all better than deep fryer, oven or gas grill. Just do potato first & keep hot in oven at 250. Even Spam is better than pan fryed but if your under 40 you may not have a clue about Spam.
    • Yes spray it, or wipe it down with an oiled paper towel before you use it.  I use a little ball of aluminum foil to scrub them after the cook, but while they are still warm. They make disposable grill topper grates that are handy too when you are cooking something that is going to be really messy.
    •   Non-matching carpet and drapes have been known to cause numerous issues, too, with or without beetles, especially in Los Angeles. Keep the hamsters safe by putting in a zip-loc bag during spraying.
    • Yes, I agree with you, but there are some professionals in Queens NY who provides an eco-friendly spray, which is not harmful.
    • I smoked a pork shoulder yesterday that turned out great, but the rack it sat on took a lot of soaking and scrubbing to get clean afterwards. Got any tricks to keep the rack less crusty? Spray it with Pam before the smoke or??
    • I stopped at a small engine shop on my way up north Monday and he confirmed what RebelSS said. I got some yellow tubing and after struggling for almost 1/2 hour, got the lines reconnected and went out and whacked some weeds. Thanks for all the replies.
    • I read somewhere that the chemicals used by Queens NY pest control caused male pattern baldness and birth defects in pet hamsters. 
    • Last Friday, I saw a beetle at my home's carpet. It is very difficult for me to get rid with this beetle and I also saw some eggs were laying on the carpet, which was quite damaging. Then on a recommendation of my neighbor I had called up the Queens NY pest control services, who had used an insect spray and where the experts spray around the floorboards, furniture and on carpets and helped us by preventing the carpet beetles laying their eggs and removing all the food sources.
