I have a G2 250 HO on the way to replace a 250 pro xs. I am currently running a 10 inch Atlas Hydraulic jackplate which I know I cannot use with the G2 because of the built in set back. What I am wondering is, the Atlas is two sections, a four inch on the transom and the six inch with the hydraulics bolted to that. Can I just use the six inch plate or is that still to much setback. The boat is a Triton 21 TRX.

That question is better answered by both the manufacturer of the Atlas Hydrauilic Jackplate and by Triton Boats.

The factory recommends that a properly trained technician service your Johnson or Evinrude outboard motor. Should you elect to perform repairs yourself, use caution, common sense, and observe safety procedures in the vicinity of flammable liquids, around moving parts, near high-temperature components, and working with electrical or ignition systems.
The information offered here is only general in nature and should not be construed as complete factory approved procedures, techniques, or specifications. Always use the proper service manual for your motor, up-to-date service literature, the correct tools, and have an understanding of how to proceed with troubleshooting and repair methods. If you are unsure or uncomfortable with a procedure, a situation, or a technique, enlist the services of a factory trained technician.
The 4" will still allow plenty of room for power-poles or talons. I have two power poles on my Atlas 4" and a Lowrance side imaging transducer mounted to the plate with a transducer saver shield bracket. Clean look!
