Consol finished minus main loom

Matt, I quite like the look of this system for my SR5.4/Yam 90. I take it you fitted it yourself? Was it easy to do? Do you mind sharing how much it cost? Are you still pleased with the results?

Over all it was a little more than a baystar.
Very easy to fit,and yes I did it myself ..it was around 500 ish.
Really pleased with the operation of it so far!!

Low and mid range is superb. Fuel econ is fantastic and everything I hoped for.
93 miles through various rev ranges and exactly 50 litres used
If I had to get somewhere with econ in mind then I would imagine 105 miles maybe a tad more out of the two fuel tanks, (each tank does actually hold 26.2)
Hi Matt and thanks for the interesting info about speed & consumption. I have the same boat and have been thinking about upgrading from an 2-stroke Yam 90 to the F70 sometime in the future. Was the distance you mentioned in land or seamiles ?
