How does a Counter Balancer System help my DF150/175 Suzuki outboard?

In-line four-cylinder engines operating at high RPM generates a secondary vibration that is directly in line with the piston's movement. In order to counter this vibration, suzuki engineers utilize a secondary balancer system, which produces a horizontal motion against the piston's movement. To produce this horizontal motion, the balancer is divided into left and right sections, each rotating in an opposite direction. Rotating at twice the speed of the crankshaft, the balancers effectively counter these secondary vibrations and produce a smoother operating engine.
