    Yamaha Wave Raider 1100 (getting 2 cylinder motor)

    I have the opportunity to pick up a raider 1100 with bad motor still in it for relatively cheap. Having no knowledge or interest in rebuilding the 1100 3 cylinder motor (i'd rather part what i can) is it possible to drop in a complete 61x motor and exhaust (from a trashed vxr pro hull) with little or no effort? Keep in mind that the 1100 has 6 motor mount points installed from factory, the only potential issue i can see is having to switch out the pto/coupler/midshaft................

    thanks for help on this and yes i did use the search function without any success......

    I have your mid shaft , complete out of WR 700 we scraped , motor sits to the front4 mounts on twin , have all that stuff , should be able to use carb cables in the ski , electrical hook up on VXR box might be a little different but not too tough , that 700 raider is a 62t engine not a 61x but it will still go , I've seen 6m6 650s in these skis , sell em cheap , keep the good stuff , once you change mid shaft will have same coupler as your 61x

    BR - you confused me a little with that you wrote above.....

    If i'm understanding your reply correctly, the only thing i'll need is a new/difference mid shaft?

    That mid shaft for sure , motor mounts are the same on the raider and VXR by part number , the 701 e box and mounts for sure , throttle cable and choke cable should work also from 1100 , all mikuni hook ups , fuel lines will hook up , just electrical hook up from ski to e box might be different from 1100 to 701 , not stop start but gauge and sensor plug in , but way easier than swapin sea doo engines , also you WILL need a 62t raider exhaust system front to back to make install whitey , raider pipes have BIG over the top chambers , VXRs have a blaster / superjet pipe that goes to the front waterbox , raiders have rear waterbox
