Description

Lightest 2-Cylinder 9.8 hp MFS9.8C(W) is the industry lightest EFI within the 8 to 9.9hp range. At a starting weight of 85lbs (38.5kg), weighing 12lbs less than the closest competitor’s EFI model. The new generation of MFS9.8C(W) model lineup is engineered to be EFI (Electronic Fuel Injection) for the first time in 200cc class. The battery-less EFI (Electronic Fuel Injection) model is the lightest 2-cylinder 9.8 hp on the market, with upgraded features from its predecessor. In addition to upgrading this model to EFI (Electronic Fuel Injection), Tohatsu has applied various key features from all other portable outboards within the company’s product range. The EFI system will provide consistent starting, stability at idle and fuel efficiency. Additionally, the EFI system will eliminate the hassles experienced with carbureted models, such as clogging and overhaul of carburetor because of ethanol fuel related issues. Water cooled fuel pump is now a standard feature on MFS9.8C(W) to offer consistent starting, stable idling and optimal running. The center of gravity has slightly shifted toward the front of the outboard reducing the manual tilt effort by 19%. Certain MFS9.8C models are now available in two color options; Aqua Marine Blue and Beluga White. Clear fuel filter with floating indicator ring provides detection of water in the fuel system. Tool-free quick drain valve allows for easy serviceability.

Tohatsu 9.8 hp 4-Stroke Benefits:

  • Light and compact!
  • Designed with proven technology
  • Greatly reduced vibration for smooth and stable running at all speeds
  • Greatly reduced induction noise for a quieter ride
  • Trim tab reduces steering effort, functioning also as the sacrificial anode that protects the engine from electrolysis
  • Ultra Low emission, EPA and CARB 3-Star rating approved
  • 5 Year limited warranty

Easy Operation and Handling:

  • Water cooled fuel pump is now a standard feature on MFS8C/9.8C(W) to offer consistent starting, stable idling and optimal running
  • In addition to an overall cleaner look by routing shift & throttle cables and wirings through the handle, the new carrying handle features a 40% increase in surface area and smooth shape to reduce the pressure when carrying
  • Shallow water drive
  • 6 trim positions*
  • Ergonomically designed tiller handle includes forward-neutral-reverse front shift lever, stop switch, throttle friction adjustment and power tilt switch (for PT-models) for easier access and maneuverability
  • Similar to other Tohatsu models such as MFS9.9-MFS140, flushing port has been relocated to the mid-section for easier access. Freshwater flushing is now easier than ever as no special tools are required

Fundamentals for User Convenience and Reliability:

  • Through-the-prop exhaust for a quieter ride
  • Clear fuel filter with floating indicator ring provides detection of water in the fuel system. Tool-free quick drain valve allows for easy serviceability
  • Thermostatically controlled cooling system for consistent engine temperature
  • Stainless steel water pump housing liner for outstanding durability
  • High grade marine aluminum alloy that provides the ultimate protection against corrosion
  • Zinc coating on internal water passages for superior corrosion resistance
  • 3.1 Gallon (12 liter) fuel tank with fuel gauge
  • Aluminum propeller

Protection:

  • Low oil pressure indicator
  • Safety lanyard (an essential protection feature standard on all Tohatsu outboards)
  • Start-in-gear protection for safer engine starting
  • Over-rev. limiter

Front Shift:

  • The shift lever is located on the front of the motor for easier operation.

Improved Center of Gravity:

  • The center of gravity has slightly shifted toward the front of the outboard reducing the manual tilt effort by 19%

Wide Anti-Cavitation Plate with Trim Tab:

  • The wide anti-cavitation plate effectively restrains the propeller from cavitating. The large trim tab helps to achieve effortless steering at high speeds while also providing corrosion protection.
