suzuki 70 hp tiller questions

Recommended Posts

I just bought a 70 Suzuki 4 stroke tiller and was looking for some info regarding idle speeds . My motor idles at 680 rpms and this is to fast for trolling even in reverse . The motor has a troll button that will adjust the rpms but will only drop 10 or so , it will increase the rpms but that is not what I need .The dealer has no experience with them so is of no help. I was under the impression that the troll button should drop the idle speed significantly the same way it worked on my Yamaha.

Any insight would be appreciated.

Also any thoughts on the back trolling plates that flip down in behind the prop ?

Cheers

What year is the motor? I know in 2012 they revised the handle with the "troll" mode, but from what I read it only increases the RPM from idle, not decrease. So the idle speed appears to be the lowest it will go. At least from what I can find.

the motor is 2011,just purchased last month never been used . They had to order in the tiller handle so I assume it is the new version .

The rpm's may sound correct, call Frankies in Chisago. Best suzuki dealers I have worked with.

I have had two Suzukis a 60 for 680 Ranger & now a 90 for the 690. If Feeling your moving to fast use a small drift sock. I have two sizes a 30" & a 54" works great for windy days on Mille Lacs. Also check your prop pitch. th

    • Hello from Sunset Lodge!

      In Minnesota, walleyes and pike have been found using crank-baits on the south side of Oak Island.  Walleye have also been caught pulling spinners in 26-30 feet using gold and green.
       
      In Ontario, walleye have been very active using pink and orange jigs on the breaks of reefs or casting shallow crank-baits in 8-12 feet by rocky shoreline points.  A good mixed bag of smallmouth and pike have been found with the walleye as well.
       
      Musky fishing has really picked up with lots of fish over 40+ inches.  Fishing sand and weedy bays near rock reefs have produced well using buck-tails, small crank-baits and top-water baits. 

      Until next week!

    • Looks like a great summer time meal! 
    • That was my wife taking a Snapchat vid of the kids, my daughter took that picture..  steak night is probably my favorite night, but taco night is a close second lol
    • At the all-star break and man did I blow it with the predictions lol.   Other than Rosario and Escobar not really much to get too excited about.   Nice home-stand before the break but its already been a big disappointing season. Of all the late 90''s  teams that were just awful and then the recent  90+ loss teams repeatedly over and over, this years team has to be the most frustrating of them all. Definitely a regression.   Buxton/Sano I dont want the team to give up on them but good grief. After some progress last year I think everyone was expected big things from both of them. I would say give up on them but players like these always go on to shine somewhere else when the Twins let them go.   Mauer has been ok, nothing great but good to see him back hitting again after his stint on the DL.   Morrison dug himself too big of hole to get out of with a terrible start at the plate. A few signs of power but not enough.   Dozier is losing millions with a bad first half. So much for him signing a big deal somewhere else and the Twins getting something for him if he is traded.   The new pitchers Odorizzi and Lynn haven't been great. Gibson has been better than expected but too bad he cant get any run support he has pitched well all year. I like Berrios, good young pitcher still making improvement. Its too bad Santana hasn't been able to get back up and contribute yet.   I hope they don't make any foolish decisions and trade and try to make a run. They don't have a chance at the wild card and even though Cleveland isn't completely dominating I don't see the Twins overtaking them in the division.
