Would like some opinions on the Mercury Black Max 200 XRi from the 94-95 era. Found one that has had annual maintenance done every year,...and the thing looks like you could eat off it. Don't know much about them, but am I correct in assuming that the nomenclature "i" in XRi means it's fuel injected? Also, the current owner claims compression is good on all cylinders. I can only take his word for that until I can go see for myself. I have no reason to doubt until given one,...so all that being said, how bout some constructive inputs on that motor in general. This could be a sweet, sweet deal and although I'm honestly leaning towards a Yamaha 200 or 225, a good motor, that's been well maintained is absolutely in the mix for me. Thanks in advance,...no brand bashing please,..just solid intel that I can use for making my decision.
If ya can't explain it simply, you don't understand it well enough.
