Thanks, I just saw that. My model number is slightly different, J25RETS. Not sure what the S means, the manual covers just J25RET. Ideas? Thanks...
I heard the last character represents changes during the model year. It doesn't affect the service manual.

In a storage lot take it or leave it. Engine is 1993 model J25RETS, S/N 0341272. Checking used factory manuals and seeing P/N...

Not at all familiar with that gear shift lever. Kinda sticks out, Is it plastic and prone to breaking? I've read posts about bad brushes on the starters. Is parts.net the best source for maintenance parts, etc? That is a short shaft engine, correct? I had the same motor in a 30hp. It served me well...

Re: Motor size on brand new tracker grizzly 1448 or 1648

There's a YouTube of a 2017 tracker grizzly 1754. It's being pushed with a 15 hp 2 stroke motor.
Claims to be getting 18 mph in a empty boat with driver only.

Re: Motor size on brand new tracker grizzly 1448 or 1648

I went with a 30hp on my 1648 tracker grizzly, tiller model. This is my first new boat and very pleased. Its built like a tank in my opinion. The 30hp is plenty motor for me. I would give your 20hp before deciding. Your call. Good luck. Jasper 2018 Tracker Grizzly 1648 Jon Additional Specs Length:16...

Re: Do you own, or consider owning a jump starter?

I got stranded once with a dead battery.
Fortunately, a guy in a nearby shop had one and gave me a jump.
Hmm. Would make a nice Christmas gift.

3 gal or 6 gal tank for 15hp 4 stroke?

I would go three gallon for sure. Both boats I've owned had six and gas would get condensation and never came close to burning even a gallon on an outing. Three would be better for weight, room, and keeping it fresh. Old boat was a 15hp 2 smoke and new one is a 25 efi 4 stroke. The 4 stroke is insa...
