fx140 vs fx140HO how to tell diffrence?
im buying what i believe is an fx140HO motor. the guy said its from an fx140ho cruiser. but i want to verify this before buying. he didnt sound 100% sure it was the ho motor. other then hull color is there a real way to tell? vin number maybe?

The Ho is 160 horsepower with a hull that is 72 lbs lighter than a
It is also about 5 miles per hour faster than a FX140.

i appreciate the response and understand the diffrence, but i can not physically go and inspect the motor that im buying im going off what the guy told me. he said it was the fxHO cruiser but didnt sound 100% sure he is pulling the motor out of a wrecked ski. thats why i need to know what i can ask him to make sure its the ho motor and i dont think hull color will be the best thing. thats why im thinnking vin number maybe? i want to make sure im getting the ho motor and not a regular fx140 motor

Spyder,I'm thinking about looking for one later when bussiness picks up,can you give us an Idea what he's asking and is he including all the wiring and ignition?
P.S.The HO is higher compression,maybe crunch some numbers if he's willing to tell you what it has.Good way to verify if its healthy too!

the 160 is higher eng capacity ie the pistons are 2mm bigger HO 76x58 140 is 74x58. but a bit difficult to tell this from out side.
I think the air filter cover says if its a 140 or HO, but they can be swapped.
Best option is to check the pump, 160 has the HO pump same as 05+ GP1300Rs where as the FX140s have the old style pre 04 GP1200R & 1300Rs style pump
Is there a FX140HO as I thought the HO refers to the pump style and I thought that this was only fitted to the FX160s
