I'd guess in GB on fleabay if engine is 1998 and trailer in good condition you'd get it for 2.5-3k.

Does the dealer offer warranty?

You avoid cost of ferry and hassle of collection. Likely if there is a buyer in NI/IE in future you will recover that cost. Snag being if buyer is in GB they will be adding ferry prices to any sale...

40 will move a SR4 fine. But will depend on ur plans for it...

Hi all

Is it possible to convert to 50hp for the future or stay the same

When you say convert do you mean...

1) Buy a 50, put it on instead and flog the 40

2) repower the 40 to give 50 either by tweaking ECU or changing parts etc?

Option 1 is a yes, SR4 Max is 50HP. Option 2 sounds to me like far more work than anyone should ever spend on a cheap motor!

If I were there I would buy it. 3500 if its tidy its worth it. there are loads around that have been abused and very few nice ones and people base all SR4s on the price of the shit ones. 2 years ago I sold a 2001 SR4 with 40 YAM on it for 4750. yes I went through it and changed a few things but if the basics are all good then go for it. wouldn't lose a good boat for a few hundred quid.
There is another member on here that would not take less than 5500 for his 1998 its totally immaculate and almost unused. or you buy a new one with trailer engine GPS etc for 13k.

50 two stroke is very well suited. mine does 39knots and still have 500 rpm to find so have switched to a four bladed to try it out.

Well its home.

Was dissapointed to find it is manual tilt and trim and has few chips in hull but it goes really well.

1 minute into test drive he had me...so much fun.

Trailer is good, has few small bits that need done but its good and solid with nice big hinged rollers.

Tubes are perfect.

Cover is a proper one.

What I did like is nothing is cleaned or polished for sale. Its honest.

Going into storage for few days then will get engine serviced to be safe and give it a clean up.

Should be set to go by next week.

Paid 3000 but it is tidy.

Cheers. Appreciate that. Was struggling to find info on age.

That's not too bad actually since there is guy just up the road selling a searider with a late eighties engine for 3000. Tubes have patched etc. He just has it all polished up and added a few bits to bling it up.

I got a much better deal than the person that buys his.

Data plate should be on the right hand side of saddle (looking from rear) bracket its its still there.( sure its the same position for a twatsoo) ref the ptt. As that sr is pretty rare it might be worth re-engine it as it makes it soooooo much easier
