Re: Bullet 250XS?


yup they're close. the XS has more gear ratio and lower unit config options and a little minor tweeking in the electronics but the pro has a better warranty.
when ya hear the two motors side by side they aint the same animal tho. The XS is stronger on bottom end grunt and top end is a little quicker. Not really sure why but it's more than lower units diffs. They aren't built in the same plant either so I gotta believe there may be some internal tweekin in there that aint published in the specs and brochures.
I'll find out for ya fer sure and post it.

Re: Bullet 250XS?


Did you do that because of losing coils or because you just wanted too?

I am worried about my coils.No problems yet....Knock on wood emoticon

I lost 2 coils in the first 20 hours and 1 coil driver. so I went on ebay and bought all 3 new drivers and a new set of coils. Merc was out of stock on them for 6 months it got so bad. If you motor is newer than 08 you should be fine. I think either they changed the vendor or the problem was resolved by then.
there is no doubting when one goes bad you'll know immediately. It will run like a OMC. emoticon

Thats for Mule.... emoticon

Re: Bullet 250XS?


One of the guys in my club bought a BassCat earlier this year. Brand new with a 250 pro xs on it. Fished 2 tourneys in it the next 3 it broke down due to the coils. He would take it to the dealer and they would replace the one that went bad. Did that twice and on the third he must have raised enough sand that they changed out the rest of them. So far its running good without anymore problems.

Re: Bullet 250XS?


I haven't had any later than late 07's come in with bad coils but have heard of some early 08's. just buy one and keep it in the boat tool box. it's a snap to change out but the trick will be to find the one thats acting up.

 TIP: It will be the spark plug thats cold to the touch.

Re: Bullet 250XS?


How much do they run usually? I hate to buy 1 when I still have almost 4 years left on the warranty.

Do you have an old one that I can turn in under warranty? emoticon
