Default Re: Thoughts on Tohatsu Kicker?

My 9.9 Merc Pro Kicker was made by Tohatsu, and I don't like it. It's rough, loud. cold blooded, and the throttle/shift linkage feels like it's connected by rubber bands. Just seems crude and primitive, especially considering how much I paid for the thing.
Oh, yeah, another thing is that the main jet in the carb is so tiny a hair from a tree frog will clog it. I had to pull the carb off in the middle of Odell to clear the jet, and the particle stuck in it was near sub-atomic. I could barely see it, but it was enough to kill the fuel flow.
