    Need Help ID'ing this Yamaha (what model?)



    All I have is the hull ID: YAMA5325F707

    the lady at the auction doesn't know the model number. I asked her if it's a Yamaha SHO or just an HO, and she told me it's a Yamaha Sea-Doo, lol.....

    can anyone advise if this an SHO? I dont care about the body, just want the motor....

    Got any numbers off the motor? I think all you can tell from the HIN is that it's a 2007 hull, certified in June 2007; not what actual model it ended up being (someone will correct me if I'm wrong). I can't get the pic to get any larger either.

    hm... dang.

    next question would be how hard would it be to turn an HO motor into an SHO? are they different internally or would it be easy to just throw a supercharger and intercooler on it?

    Just going by general knowledge here <done a bit of racing with supercharged engines>but normally the manufacturer would lower the compression and beef up the crank journals for the supercharged engine. --- If they really wanted to be reliable with the extra stress of the blower they would do a lot to the bottom end as well as pistons, head, etc. . .

    it's a totally different motor. the fxho is based on the R1 bike motor. the SHO motor is a purpose built marine unit. The HO motor is pretty much maxed out as is. 1litre, 160hp, and 10,000+ rpm.

    yes, the new HO uses a non supercharged 1.8, but, the HIN that was posted ends in 07. there was no 1.8 motor in 07
