97 kg too heavy on a SR4?

Is 97 kg too heavy for my SR4? I have a 35HP 2 stroke on it now that weights 77 kg, but looking to get a new Honda 50 HP (lightest new motor I can find, Honda's 40 HP weighs the same as the 50 HP).

A spec sheet for a new Avon/Zodiac SR4 says MAX engine weight is 90 kg.

Thanks. Its reassuring to know you have the same setup. I was thinking my transom was going to tear off, or something horrible.

It won't. Old AVONs had their Transoms rated for 110 kgs

Thanks for the information Mextli. I wonder if the newer "Zodiac" searider SR4 line up is built any different than my 1998 Avon, for them to currently list the max weight at 90 kg.
