Yamaha 90 2 stroke prices?

I will be on the look out for a fresh or even new Yamaha 90hp 2 stroke shortly, what kind of money are they making?

I'll be looking for the bare engine, I have a 703 and Yamaha gauges.

thanks in advance, Murph.

You'll need to spend around 2500 - 3000 for a newish Yam 90.

I had the Yamaha 2stroke 90hp *2 and yes, they are good motors. Bullet Proof really.

They have not changed their design in goodness knows how long.

They can become a bit finniky to start, but then once you pick up the sequence it is pretty right. I had two 90hp Yamys that had to be treated differently to kick over after no use for a few weeks, however, once they are warmed no probs.

Great weight ratio.

Anyway I refitted Evinrude E-Tecs recently 90hp. Like the yamahas great weight ratio, about 20kg heavier than the Yamaha, but

Modern Technology -
Hell of a lot better fuel economy thus longer range on a tank
First start every time - one turn of the key
3yrs No Main Maintenance - however, I would still consider minor checks.


I am not trying to talk you out of the Yamaha, Maybe just consider options.

Regarding the Gauges, whether second hand or new, they generally come with the Gauges, and the Control Binnacle, well that is worth considering, and if it is tight budget constraints, I can understand.

There appears to be a few people on this site now that have roled over to Etecs from the tried and true 2stroke Yamaha.

Oh the Etec's are also 2 stroke, but compete in the 4 stroke market.

Best of luck.

For what its worth i have had two new evinrudes 90hp and the 150hp fantastic fun sounds great, performance superb, fuel economy was only good at low revsLike most manufacturers you do get faults with high tech engines and you just cant do a thing to them and the bills can be large.Services is money for old rope.And this is why i,ve gone to carb and desiel.So when you buy seriously consider who is going to mantain your engine and the future costs.I have never had a yam.I also havent heard anything bad either.you would be better have a good yam instead of a good evinrude i would put money on it.Good Luck
