Suzuki DF90 servicing

 So I'm gonna have a crack at this since I've got plenty of time on my hands.

I bought a genuine Suzuki service kit online a while ago so want to have a crack.

I'm pretty hands on with most things but looking for a few tips etc and what to look for. Will use Dr Google for youtube vids but always good to get some local advice.

 Probably a no brainer but as you pull it apart remember to put the bits in order with the bolts so it's easier to put it back in the same order. That way nothing left off or spare bolts

A little tip

 When filling the gear case oil, pump it in from the bottom up. That way you don't get any air locks or miss out on a complete fill of oil as necessary. 
also as others have mentioned, just make sure to check or exchange the zinc anodes. Easy to do and won't take long. Lastly, a bit of injector cleaner in your fuel never hurts either.

 Thanks mate, I had a marine mech clean all the head anodes last year and gave me a little education on them and how to clean. The gear case is my biggest concern to make sure I fill it right.

Get yourself a gear oil pump.

Get yourself a gear oil pump. Quicksilver do one but Suzuki may as well. They literally screw to the small oil bottles and then to the bottom hole of the leg. Only round the $20 mark and a brilliant investment

Just a tip, grease the threads on any bolts you remove with a smear of marine grease, stops them siezing or binding when you have to remove them next time.
