Have you had a blow to the head recently, or a bad fall?

Tripped over a pile of Selvas perhaps?

I don't know anything about them either but if you already have it and you like it ... inertia is the line of least resistance

Wow, can't keep up with the responses to this one... need more beer!
Hmmm, really liked the idea of twins has anybody actually had any first hand experience with this set up? What if they were PTT would that sway opinion?

Obviously a single 90hp will thrash twin 40's but by how much.
Weight:
2 x 40 = 270lbs
1 x 90 = 260lbs but add on a 6hp backup??

Selva's, yes I like them but a lot don't which makes them silly cheap 2nd hand so I keep my eye out for them and pick them up for little money (think I have enough now though). I believe Yamaha have owned a minority share in Selva for years (four stroke Selva's are rebadged Yamaha).

Perhaps I need to buy another SR5.4's to compare.
Then I can have one with one with twin 40's to carry all the spares for the other Selva powered one!

How about this 90hp Yamaha on ebay http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...m=170546379621 & video here:
150 delivery from Lithuania is it worth the risk?

I'm gonna guess and say by about 40hp "equivalent" - so lots.

There's no contest, performance wise.
