    What's the difference between the 2001 and 2012 ho engines?

    As title says!-TITLE should read 2011 and 2012 ho engines! (Can't edit thread title! if any of the mods want to???)
    Jerry is selling different parts for both, so im just wondering what are all the differences?
    Also any change to the vxs/vxr skis? Hull thicknes/weight etc etc.
    Thanks

    No changes to the VXR or VXS other than cosmetic.

    What parts are you looking for on the HO platform?

    Breather filter kit is different,
    Also heard the inlet manifold is now plastic.
    Just wanted a complete list of the upgrades really.

    Different throttle control, lubrication system is different......no scavenger pump or external breather now, parts surrounding the timing chain have been changed. The block & head are now painted black......... cam cover & exhaust manifold have an anodic oxide coating.
    Inlet Manifold on the 2012 is not plastic........2013 may be, but am not 100% sure.

    Do you, or anyone else, know what underlying issues caused these changes? Thx.
