    yeah Iam also looking for a complete new engine for my 2009 FX SHO can you buy them anywhere??
    Basically i ran mine dry of oil so it needs a full bottom end rebuild and also needs a connecting rod replaced but iam finding it very complicated with these yamaha motors to do so Iam just wondering if its worth just putting a new block in her...??

    Iam thinking of easiest and quickest solution over cheapest option now... just want to get her fixed real quick

    look for a wrecked ski, insurance co., salavge yards etc. might be your best bet, you have to watch your not buying a stolen sho motor as there are some scumbags out there that steal and sell ski parts.......

    Got home from work and took my pump housing off and found my wear ring totally screwed up stupid sho don't have just wear ring so I have to order new housing also my buddy hydro locked his stock rxp engine then thru a rod ordered a new one from sbt and with 6 hrs on new engine one rocker snapped in half and screwed up his oil pumps spt gave him a new engine but would not do anything for the oil pumps. So I guess its hit or miss with sbt
