    Yamaha SUV Conversion(s)

    I saw the one thread with the Doo engine in to the Yami SUV.

    Was wondering if anyone has put a Yami 4 stroke engine in to a Yami SUV hull?

    I've never found anyone that has in searching several different forums, but as soon as I find a suitable donor ski, I'm going to. It might take a while to find one but I have another year and a half+ warranty on the SBT engine I installed this summer, so I have plenty of time to find one that is cost effective.

    I would go talk to Jim's performance out there in Tampa he has been doing conversions and is quite handy with the ski's.

    We've basically started this process, I located a 2002 SUV locally, bought it and Mike at Bradenton Powersports has removed the engine and I'm currently looking locally for the donor craft, ideally a 2006-07 FX HO.

    There is at least one other conversion I've caught wind of and several other people that are wanting to do just the same thing.

    I'm hoping to pick up the donor craft ASAP. Thought I had one today, but the guy selling it likes people to wait in line instead of taking the $$ that's right in front of him...

    BEACHTYME, Spoke w/ Mike at Bradenton Powersports yesterday. I am in process of FX HO conversion to my SUV. Working well so far. Have lots of pics and ideas to make it work. Stay in touch, BEAR

    We're almost done, fine tuning then fun starts. Rode it in water test yesterday, fast and nice sound. Thanx GEOERGE AND MIKE @JETEK.

    Haven't been on the forum in months, this happen to be the first thread I saw this morning. I have built one with an NA 1.8L Yamaha motor. Pretty simple conversion, the usual work, make room for the motor, move motor mounts etc. etc. Really only had to make one custom part, a spacer for the intermediate shaft housing. The only other issue was the exhaust running into the side of the hull, but overcame that by just taking a small section out and straightening it out just like I did for the GPR conversions. I'll post up some photos later if I get a minute.
