    Welcome to the boards, I agree about buying things that have a good access to parts replacement......Jetspray

    all they show for parts on their site is for the 2.5 hp motor. I wouldnt waste my time with these junk motors. But that is up to you your money. for couple bucks more you can buy a name brand motor with full support.

    Thanks all for the opinions!
    I work on outboards for a living and every now and then we get someone who brings in a off brand. I spent 9 hours looking for a rebuild kit or a new pump for this one motor never could find a outlet. So any of these off brands I would rather see people run from them.
    If you cant get parts or have to order over seas to get them you lose any kind of "savings" you get.
    stay with name brands at least you have support for them.

    Not even priced much lower than a genuine Yamaha.
