    What does 62T mean? Is that the right engine for that ski (XL700)

    Yes that is the correct motor for your ski.

    Yamaha named each one of their motors for easy identification. Each component should have a marking on it somewhere making it quite easy to know which part came off which ski.

    650's are 6M6
    701's up to 1995 were 61x/61x
    701's after 1996 were 62T/61x
    760's are 64U cases with 62T cylinders
    GP800 is a 66E
    GP1200 is a 66V

    The most noticeable difference is the 61X cases were a single carb where the 62T is a dual carb setup. 64U is identical as 62T except it has dual pulse lines for the carbs.

    Up to 1995 the 701's comprised of a 61x case and 61x cylinder. After 1996 the Superjet had 62T cases with 61X cylinders where the sitdown skis like the raiders, ventures and GP's had 62T cases and cylinders and were offered in both 701 and 760cc displacements.

    Not 100% on what years they did it but you will find that there are both 701 62T's and 760 62T's where they used the same cylinder with different sleeves. The 61x cylinders have a lower exhaust port timing which gives a much snappier throttle response in the lighter craft where the 3mm higher exhaust port of the 62t offers more torque to get the heavier craft moving.

    1994 Raider 701 twin carbs (only came one way) were 62T also. GP1200 are 65 something, GP1200R is the 66V model.
