    New owner of 25CB with 2 cycle 15hp zephyr saildrive and I have not ran it yet. I was wondering how much vibration and how loud it is with water lift exhaust? Thanks

    If the engine mounts are OK and installed correctly, they vibrate very little.. The water lift muffler quietens it a bit less more (less noise) than a normal 15 HP outboard. Make sure the intake air silencer is OK as well..
    EDIT: Will vibrate if not running on both cylinders or cylinders aren't "balanced" (bad rings on one, bad plug, bad reed plate, etc)
