    2008 Yamaha FX HO 160 with SHO intake grate?

    Hi Folks,

    I've got my first pwc 2 months ago and after many reading on this forum I decided to get a R&D intake grate and
    pump plug kit.

    I have ordered the parts for the FX 140 / H.O. model but when I wanted to fit these items today I noticed
    that the intake grate on my model looks like a SHO grate?

    Can anybody confirm that I need the SHO grate and PPK? The user manual says it is the
    "FX1100A-G / FX Cruiser High Output, FX1100-G / FX High Output"

    I can't find any info about this on the Inet and I downloaded a service manual for the models 2004...2008
    that shows the grate I have ordered, I am confused!

    The answer is yes. The 08 FX HO uses the same grate as the SHO (it is the only pre-2009 FX HO model to do so). When I upgraded to an R&D grate on my 08 FXHO, I used an SHO grate. The diagram from the service manual that you posted is not for the 08, but is what is found on earlier models. Yamaha changed the grate on the 08 to match the SHO.

    Here is a photo of the stock grate next to the R&D grate that you need. Its an R&D 112-18000:

    Here is the correct page from the 2008 FX HO service manual for the intake grate:
