We had a Yamaha 115hp 2 stroke outboard when I was a kid. We ran that thing flat out all the time. My dad sold it to a friend in the late 90's when the engine was 14 years old. My dad used it the entire time the other person owned it. Then they wanted to sell the boat and my dad got another friend to buy the rig. My dad is still using the boat 26 years later running that Yamaha wide open with no problems, without the headaches of boat ownership. I owned 2 FZR-1000's and those bikes were just incredible in the early 90's. Smooth, reliable and fast. I have a little ttr125 dirt bike I ride around with my kids and it's cold blooded, just like all Yamaha's, but it's very reliable.
