    MR1 vs ?

    OK,
    I have a 2011 VXS with 22 hrs and I am a tad disapointed with the ski,
    I am considering purchasing a used Yamaha cruiser like a cruiser style FXHO with a MR1 engine, which engine is best?
    Tks for your opinions

    What are your expectations?? You asked which engine is the "best". Best between MR1 and...?

    If you are disappointed in the performance of the VXs you really wont be impressed with the MR-1.........

    I am pleased with the engine performance while throttling, not pleased with engine at idle, runs rough, spikey. Anyway I just thought that the other ski had more perks like the cleats, piston hood opener, cruise control, trim, rear step ect. Just seemed to be a better ski.
    Would I be disapointed?

    I'm not sure how a rough idle would disappoint if everything else is good, but the FX will have all the bells and whistles. As far as engines, there isn't much comparison IMO

    the cruiser will be a better ski than what you have ,more comfortable in the rough and better features
    the engine performance will be slightly less, but fuel economy will be better

    If you are looking for all the bells and whistles and speed isn't very important to you the MR1 may be great for you. The VXS is a bare bones stripped down, ski with alot of power. An FXHO will be about 6-8 mph slower at least.
