    YAMAHA C-TEC2 4000, 65 HP, 50 lbs

    While doing some research on F.I. 2-strokes, that engine caught my attention also. (I believe the same engine in the 2021 Yamaha SXVenom) Looks promising, but will be a while before we see used sleds for a donor though. Supposedly, it's 1/2 of this engine detailed on Y.T.

    OK which one of us did this?

    It was Gretchen Dimwhitmer's husband...he said it was ok because his wife is the governor. (he tried to use his wife's influence while attempting to have their boat put in the water at their cottage near Traverse City during her lockdown)

    $10 gallon Avgas

    E100 has roughly 2/3 the BTU/Gal as gasoline so we'd be making more pit stops, but could be an option.
