yamaha 75 2 stroke becoming a 90?

hi,
iv got a 2005 yam 75 2 stroke on my searider, and its great. but.... anyone got any idea how its restricted to 75? anybody made it into a 90?

it seems a relatively simpleish engine.... still on carbs... and its the same block.... so it must be do-able.

is it just a simple spacer between the carbs and block thats got restrictive holes, or more serious stuff?

thanks.....

I may be wrong but I think it's done with carbs.

Have a look at a microfiche parts cd (ebay) and see what's different. The carbs were the difference on my 50 to take it to 60.

2-stroke? I'd guess you're right on carbs with port sizes and timing running a close second.

Are you sure its the same block and not a tuned 60/70 block which were smaller?

Yep worth a check though. However if the 75 is in good nick and running well would you want to mess about with it. Spring is just around the corner, seems a shame to risk lots of problems just as its warming up.

No use for 118118, but what's involved in upgrading an 85 to a 90?

John

John, I wonder if there is any difference or if its just a marketing strategy to make buyer think they are getting more hp. Most of the 85s I have seen are pre-mix like our club boat whilst the 90s seem to be oil injection so perhaps its there to differentiate the different models.

for the 5hp bump, most of the time, it's a timin change, some times a main jet also.

Along exactly the same lines, is it possible to do this with an E-Tec, 40hp to 60hp? If so how? Not looking to do it as a DIY job (well I'm not looking to do it at all, a mate is!) but would be done if feasible by the dealer.

yep as the e-tec 40 is "just" a de-tuned 60. but it is a dealer only option... god only knows what happens to any warranty etc.

Thanks for that mdt. I don't think he'll be too worried about the warranty, not sure there's that much left anyway. Think he'll be more interested in the price, but he will be delighted with the positive answer, so thanks again

not sure, but i dont think its possible for even a dealer to do the upgrade from a 40 - 60, i think its all programed directly into the computer, and cant be reprogramed. i think a new comp costs almost £2000........

i may be completly wrong, but im 90% sure..... have experienced a 50 etec, which had lots of new parts under warantee....

you can use any carb or carbs, as long as you can make them fit, and they are jetted right.
this is a 70hp case with 90hp carbs, makes 98 to 105hp pulls to 8000rpms
dapendin on the tune-up

and just in case thats not enuff , hears a 6pack setup

what you can do is limited to just that, What you can do.
