Take a look here. They do suggest locking the bigger tiller style motors in the down position. Seems like a bad idea if you happen to hit something though.

The 25 HP page doesn't seem to mention that feature.

My only experience is with OMC outboards, they rely on the trim unit only, they have no additional lock down. Is the operation manual silent on this?

Got the new Suzuki 25 ready to break in.  Today I started it for the first time and checked shifting adjustments.  Getting late start on summer but got sidelined for a few weeks buying a classic pickup.  
This may seem like a silly question, but when operating the new Suzuki 25 with power tilt/trim are you supposed to set the lock-down lever to lock in order to keep motor in down position or just rely on the power/tilt mechanism to keep the engine down position while boating??  My thought is just let tilt/trim keep it in position, but need to confirm this.  Seems like an important question.
