    Are you saying the 2010 VXR and the 2007 VX are the same exact hulls?? The reason I'm asking, is the 2007 VX had a pump tunnel mounted IB, and the 2010 VXR had a mid-wall mounted IB.
    I'm asking...

    I installed a 2012 1.8L NA into a 2005 FX HO hull without much issues. The build-thread is here ---> http://greenhulk.net/forums/showthread.php?t=260285

    The MR1 and 1.8L engines generally share...

    Yup, my-bad for using the "recall" terminology - I agree to what your dealer explains being the general differences.
    So I guess my point on post 88, is that Yamaha had fixed the firmware (software...

    For the record, always hated the fob. Never use it. Never trust a micro-battery on a fun day. I leave mine unlocked, pretend there's no security. I do have a battery cut-out switch mod, that could...

    I've been following this thread... don't feel drstaind has this so-called recall issue... as recalls are applied/fixed in consecutive years. Could be a one-off here. Or new issue. Just sayin'

    Well, 20/20 hind-sight here ... your original post here sounds a lot like the classic throttle-body dampner leak issue (before the redesign of 2018 - I think) where-in the rubber...

    I hope to be dropping a 1.8L NA into my SUV later this year (time permitting). It will be my 1st SUV conversion attempt, and I'd become one of the few doing a 1.8L. Although not my 1st at...

    I agree with Steve45 as well. Plus, I'd not feel so safe having a 120v power cord inside or even on top of the craft. Try keeping things out of the hull, out from between the tarp/cover, out of the...

    scittb is correct. The 'play' is very likely coming from the height adjustment mechanism, and they get looser with time & use. Yes the 2009 & 2012 share the same general components, but being newer...

    2020's are obviously included in the recall, yet limited - aka "certain 2020 FB1800 ... FC1800" FX models. Sounds like they might have found/fixed the issue mid-year to me.

    Not sure if you've mistyped the year of the engine model, but TR1s (3-cyl 1050cc) came out in 2016. Therefore, if the year is correct, that craft will have a MR1 4-cyl.

    Best-case scenario, MR1s...
