Default Suzuki outboard

New 90 hp Suzuki outboard nearing 20 hours time for lower unit gear oil change & upper unit motor oil change . I saw on YouTube a certified yamaha mechanic saying he used a oil extraction pump to change motor oil through the dip stick location is this ok to do also on the Suzuki motor ? Anyone use this method ? Thanks Robert

If changing the Oil is anything like My DF250AP..It could not be easier. Tilt and turn Engine.Pull Plug and drain with hardly any spillage at all.>>Not sure about the smaller Engines though.

as long as you are on a trailer, it would be much quicker to drain through the drain plug. I could have it completely drained in less time than it would take to set up an extractor.

I'd drain it. Probably quicker than pumping and would imagine it gets more out.

If the boat lives in the water or on a lift, going through the dipstick is more convenient. If it lives on the hard or on a trailer, using the drain hole is very easy.
