I have a 1995 Yamaha Waveraider 1100 bought tomorrow for $1000 with trailer. My question is under 1100 it says triple... I see that a lot of them don't have that under it so whats the difference between a 1100 triple and just the 1100? Thanks for the help!

All the 1100cc engines are "triples" = 3 cylinders. Yamaha also made a 700cc 2 cylinder waveraider. Look at the engine. If you have 3 spark plugs you have the triple. Is 3 cylinders better than 2? Maybe more power and speed, but also one extra cylinder to go bad down the road. The 700cc engine was one of Yamaha's most dependable, and easiest to work on.

1100 triple

This means it has a triple carb assembly. All of them have 3 cylinders which is why there are 3 plugs but this ski has 3 carbs as well as 3 cylinders. This ski will easily run 15 mph faster than any 700 and about 8-10 mph faster than a standard 1100. There are no worries with more to go wrong as each carb is seperate from the other and can be replaced or rebuilt individually.

What's a "standard 1100"?
