    Need someone who is very familiar with FX's

    I took in a 07 FX140, that had thrown a rod thru the case. It looks like this ski was kinda thrown together and then sold to my customer. Has been repainted and has no decals. The model is FX1100-F, so isnt that an HO? The engine is only a 1000cc. Also, is there a difference in the head on a FX and a FXHO?

    The 07 FX1100-F is the high output model, which has a 1052cc engine rated at 160hp. Are you sure the engine's only 1000cc? If so, then they could've dropped the engine from a 2006 or earlier FX in it, but that would require all the electronics have been swapped too.

    Yes, its def the 1000cc block, but the head on it has the same size dome area as 1052 (vx) head. Is that normal for the 1000cc head? Basically, im trying to figure out exactly what i have here. is there a way to identify which head (and electrics) I have?

    Jeff, how are you sure it's the 1000cc? How many hours on the engine? BTW, VX is not 1050...

    Based on this, this is a VX not FX... See the models
    FX1100F is a VX

    That has to be an error........the FX1100F is a non cruiser FXHO 160

    Yamaha show the head assembly for 998cc FX & 1052cc FXHO as the same part number. The 1052cc VX head has a different part number.

    Dave, isn't the VX 110 HP, are they still 1052 and yet lower HP than the FX 140 at 998?
