    Looking at a 2006 vx110 thats been sitting

    So come across a vx110 just the engine, jet and all the wireing that was stripped off a damaged ski a few years ago. Engine was all sealed up and stored in a heated garage since then. Iím gonna do a compression test on it before i commit to buying it but what else should i look into? The guy selling it had it running before stripping it down and was planning on using it for a mini jet project but never got around to it.

    Thoughts?

    title. My state is getting more involved in checking engine numbers these days, especially on older units. We already do it on out of state transfers. No inspection, no title transfer..and the inspectors have been schooled too it seems

    And along the same lines as mmpeter advice about running numbers ... also insure that engine is not a re-manufactured or aftermarket clone - as these have proven to be very unreliable, built with non-yamaha parts - just lasting long enough to make the sale.

    Totally sure its a yamaha more wondering about the physical running of the engine more then anything else.
