I have a 2004 Yamaha FX140 with 90 hours that I have kept in meticulous condition since I bought it. I recently came across a 2005 Yamaha FX Cruiser HO with 35 hours that was a steal, so I bought it, thinking I would keep it. However, although not used much, it (the 05) was used in salt-water and there is definately some corrosion on some of the external engine parts/bolts. The engine on my 04 looks like its brand new and so now I am just not sure how concerned to be about some of the bolts being rusted on the 05. The guy claimed he always flushed it, but who knows??? Now I am having second thoughts about the 05, (although I like the HO motor, security feature and cruiser seats) and thinking maybe I should just keep the 04 because I know it is in perfect shape. Anybody out there do a lot of salt-water riding....maybe a little corrosion in the engine compartment is normal......I took the 05 for a 10 mile test ride and it ran flawless. Any thoughts?
