    What difference will I notice : 2006 FX HO verses the newer SHO models

    I am considering upgrading from a 2006 FX Cruiser HO to a newer model (super charged & larger engine) Yamaha.

    Have you done this (or similar) upgrade?

    What are the differences in performance and handling ?

    My 2006 FX HO still surprises me with how strong and fast it is. Is the upgrade worth it ? Why ?

    I went from 2005 and 2006 FXHO's to (2) FX SHO's. Acceleration is night and day. The upgrade is bittersweet. The thrill doubled. The maintenance and repair costs also doubled.

    Yes the up grade is definitely worth It, I had a 2008 sho and now I have a 2014 svho and even though they are both supercharged I can feel the difference in the newer 2014 svho, it has a bigger wheel than the older sho model. My friend has an sho with stage 3 reflash ecu, ribbon delete, exhaust and air filter and with the stock svho I am able to keep up with him.

    You get about 9 more MPH on the top end...and it take about half the time to get there...

    no comparison between the accell....but straight line speed isnt everything...it drinks gas like a bitch if you are getting on it. Where as a NA FX will keep sipping...

    plus the repair bills are always expensive.

    I could go on all day about the two...but are we really trying to compare a supercharged ski to a non...thats kinda silly...

    every drive a rental mustang and compare it to a gt500?? there ya go
