But you can't buy a new 2-stroke 90 Yammi! Great motor. What else would you look at? 

Yes it is/was a great motor.  I had a Hoog 16 with a Yammi 90 2S around 1988-89.  It was an awesome combo - fast and light!

Yamaha 90 2-stroke, 1.1L, 262 LBS. (no longer in production)
Evinrude ETEC 90 2-stroke, 1.3L, 320 LBS.
Tohatsu 90 TLDI 2-stroke, 1.3L, 337 LBS.
Suzuki 90 4-stroke, 1.5L, 343 LBS.
Yamaha 90 4-stroke, 1.8L, 353 LBS.
Mercury 90 4-stroke, 2.1L, 359 LBS.

I've heard great things about the Suzuki 90.  The power to weight ratio is very good.

The two I had run gave great service 2006 175 Saltwater , 96 Johnson 150 Ocean Runner, the 175E-Tech had one repair while I owned it Injector failed I believe 2016. but did find this on Louisiana Sportsman may be worth calling to check out, looks like a 2001 90 Yamaha that's been rebuilt, I'm also hearing good things on the Mercury's.

Looks nice!  Definitely worth having a certified mechanic check it out.  If you're a fly fisherman and sight fishing in skinny water, I think motor weight and less draft are most important.  Go with the lightest motor that will also be reliable.  I have not owned an Etec, but Evinrude is including a 5 year warranty with an additional rebate until 6/30/2019.  Good luck!

I have an Evinrude/mercury  dealer down the road from me i may check it out. The Etec is the closest in weight to the yami 90 tow stroke. any thought on the etecs?

2 years ago I replaced my 2000 Yamaha 90 with a ETEC 90 and it was the best thing I ever did. I haven't had any problems at all. The only thing I would do differently now, is go with an ETC 115 SHO but the dealer had the 90 in stock.

As a welder , I will say the metal used on the Suzuki is garbage .

Those internal water jackets rot .

I have to reweld them every week .

Buyer beware .

Were you able to find one?

I'm in the market as well. Trying to replace my 98 yammy 90 two stroke with an early 2000's model. 

Just curious

I ended up replacing the lower unit and a new trim motor for now. It still runs good so I am still on the hunt for the right motor.
