Currently have the original Yamaha 225 HP on my 2004 2520 XL and would love to repower to a 300 HP. I was told by Robin Parker and also Armstrong that my current bracket would need to replaced if I repowered to a single 300 HP. Even though the weight of the 300 HP is the same (slightly less actually) as my current outboard, the torque is different and the old bracket could only support up to 250 HP. Wondering if anyone has any experience with moving up to 300 hp using the same bracket or any experience changing brackets and how that went? Honestly if I had to install a new bracket I would probably install one for twins and go with twin F150’s - Would appreciate any input. Thanks.
