So is the Suzi 90. Must be same engines, detuned.

Unfortunately, the Yam 90 is about 10kg more.

Evinrudes are out? A lot of people like them. Long shaft 90 is 145kg.

Luck;

Hi

if you feel you would get away with 163kg then the Honda 90 with its 6 year warranty, and has BLAST and is a VTEC etc. demo available if you can get yourself to balloch.

Yams are also v good as we see very few of these with problems so if you can get one for a good price then well worth a look.

Dave
ps we sell our demo engines in a few weeks so that could also be an option for you.

163 kg is 13 kg over rated weight - so I will need to discard the Honda.

Etec 2 strokes - I prefer to have 4 stroke - less hassle no need worry to buy two stroke oil, will not start the etec lovers off!

The yam 80 is 170Kg so you are looking at the 70hp at 120KG at around 7300 inc vat.

Hope this helps

Dave
