Yamaha F90 to 115 conversion ?


klbowe

Question

I had heard somewhere that my F90 Yamaha (not fuel injected)

is the same engine as the 115 but dumbed down with a chip ? Just curious if anyone has any information on this or if it would be worth the conversion .

Almost seems like there would be more to it than just a chip. Being non-fuel injected I don't know what, other than timing, could be controlled by computer to make 25 more hp.

Maybe, I guess; but almost sounds too good to be true.

I know someone who was talked into converting his 25 hp into a 35 hp by having the carbs rejetted. Big mistake, cost him some money and the motor never worked as good as before the conversion, and he didn't get any more top end out of it. Maybe not the same thing as you're talking about, but I wouldn't do it unless you hate your motor. Even then I wouldn't do it.

I don't think you can change much from a carbed motor.

You might have to change jets etc.

Cost might be: high

risk of problem: high

gain in extra speed: very little (2mph/3mph)

I honestly wouldn't do it.

I have heard it is the same block only bored out a tad different. I really don't know. I have the f115 it is one awesome motor on my 1700 explorer. If you look at the specs it has a few more ci than the f90. I will tell you this if you are trying to figure out if there is a power difference I will tell ya hell ya. My friend bought the f90 for his explorer last year wasn't happy with it. Upsized to the 115 and not even close you really notice the 25 ponys!!

There is a cubic inch difference between the F115 and the F90, 106.2 to 97. There is a compression difference I believe also. Weight is also different 402lbs to 369lbs.

The two motors that specifications are alike are the F90 and the F75.

      First open water fishing this morning. Planed to go to Clearwater but water was 6 inches over docks. Drove over to Sylvia/Twin and access was great. Water very clear, could see bottom in more than 12 ft.  Caught several sunfish and bass. 2 northerns and a crappie. Most went back including a 9.5 in male sunny. Beautiful fish. Most caught in less than 3 ft water.  Temp was 61.

      We are high up on the hill so no worry of water damage, but our electrical box wasn't too far from the rising lake water. I hope that issue doesn't start hitting others as well!

      I was up for opening weekend, but only fished Saturday morning. I had a limit by 6:30 so headed back to the cabin to get work done. In about an hour I lost 2 on the way to the boat, boated a 13" that I threw back, and kept a 14, 15, 16, 17. Nice size eaters. Jig and minnow in 15-20 FOW.  Water temps where I was fishing was 41.    I have damage to 2 docks and several trees down. I hope this water level goes down soon! Good luck everyone.

      I'm willing to buy this white shirt. It will look awesome with the juicewrld pants.

      Opener was decent on Saturday and absolutely on fire Sunday. 9 eyes, three over 25 in, one at 28.5. A bunch of largemouths, some crappie and perch and a TON of bullhead. One of those weekends where your hands start to hurt.

      I'm quite happy since I'm going fishing with a pal for the first time in a long time. We plan to purchase some clothing for it, such as exclusive hoodies.

      The majority of docks can't be put it. Water is over the top of pretty much every permanent dock.  Very few docks are in.

      Crappies are all up shallow in the south metro. Caught this one shore fishing with a beetle spin from a more secluded lake without much access. All of the crappies were between 7-9 inches with this 11.5" being the exception
