    Buying Yamaha FX or FX HO Cruiser Need Info

    I'm going to an auction tomorrow and they have several FX and FX HO Yamahas. I've only owned Kawasakis and wondered if there was anything in particular to look for on these models prior to purchase. Thanks.

    I was at that auction yesterday, the guy I was with bought the black/gold FX-HO for $4900 with only ten hrs on it. Took it out to the lake today and rode it next to my Seadoo 155hp 4-tec and my Kaw 15F. Yamaha handles chop as well or better than the seadoo and is a little faster as well. It also rides better in the rough than the 15F but its not nearly as fast. The 15F would pull away from the FX-HO from start to finish, and thats not just my 15F, but also a stock 15F we were riding with. Overall I liked the Yamaha for being a great all around ski, but I thought it would be alot better if it had more HP.

    The 09 has more H.P

    I have an 09 FXHO and it now has 180 horsepower. 08 and earlier had 160 HP and had a 1052 cc engine the 09 has an 1.8 liter 180 hp engine

    How do you like your 09 FXHO? Have you had a gps on it to see what speed it will do?
