    What's the reasoning there? Price? Because that is the only area where the 4tec is better IMO. Its a ten year old motor, old technology and horrible sc design.

    1. The seadoo motor is built with higher quality parts and forged internals and much more simple design. The yamaha is built with crappy cast internals.
    2.The sho moptor has only been out a couple years and I've seen more rods through the case than I have seen out of the 4-tec since 03.
    3. The sho motor is heavy
    4. The sho motor is bare without any protection from the elements where the sea doo is all powder coated. Most 2 year old sho motors look like crap.
    5. It $3000 to replace the sc housing if it gets damaged.
    6. the little wimpy sc shaft on the sho is a joke.
    7. SC clutch design sucks and is expensive to replace; (we'll see what happens with the new sprag but my bet is they will still break quite often with high rpm's and big wheels.) Much prefer the sea doo set-up when built with the correct parts and maintained they work great.

    +1 for yamaha. When the sc clutch gioes you dont need to disassemble the motor and you can make it back to the dock.

    I agree that the 4tec is a very stout and well built motor. Your points are valid ones, however this is a fairly even debate and one could compile a list of reasons to stay away from a 4tec as well. They both have their pros and cons, however, the supercharger was what did it for me. I dont see how anyone can argue that the seadoo supercharger design is anything other than a disaster. Whenever anything goes wrong, youre taking your motor apart to search for pieces. Losing a metal SC washer recently was what prompted me to move away from seadoos and try something different.
