    Sounds like a Yamaha hull is going to suffer from a lack of reliability, What came of the FZR motor before it was removed?

    I know the Seadoo motor is right at 200lbs with the manifolds on and the Yami 1.8L is 335+, never weighed the kawi.

    Ok, thanks for the numbers. How do you think a vxr would handle with the weight loss from the motor?
