    FXHO questions

    What is the deal with the FXHO. I assume the motor is the same as the FZR right? Are they just big heavy skis? I am looking at buying one with a blown motor cheep and maybe putting the motor back together or putting a RXP motor in it. How fast can they run with a fair amount of mods? I am looking to do this for the wife.

    someone correct me if I'm wrong, but the FXHO motor is the same motor that the Yamaha R1 bike uses, which is a 1000cc 4 stroke. There aren't many mods out there for these things... i think an RPM kit, powershot maybe, different hull mods....

    If it's an 09 then it uses the same motor just non supercharged.
    If it's 08 or older then it's the older motor as smbstyle said.

    Do you mean the fxho or the fxsho?

    the fxsho is the same engine as the fz

    For the fxho 08 and older are 1100cc and 09 is 1800cc non supercharged. I dont think it is the same engine as the sho.

    They are a big ski but from 08 onwards they have nanoexcel hulls so they are lighter than the older models.

    I dont think there is alot of mods for the fxho but there is plenty of mods for the fxsho

    09' was the first year for the non supercharged 1800. 08' and older were the 1100cc mr1 engine.

    so the 09 1800 HO engine is not the same as the 1800 SHO engine? except for SC.

    They are basically the same 1800 CC power plant but the FXHO does not have provisions for the supercharger.

    seadoo motor might work. even though the motor mounts and midshaft are in identical locations like the gpr, the design of the stringers might make a rotax swap more complicated. 18 gallon gas tank would be mice too. . .

    check out my gpr-1 build thread. i have some good pics of the fx stringers and motor in there.
