A 90 etec should be what your looking for.
That will fit the bill in OCR.

I wouldn't think a 90 Etec would fit a tight budget.....

I think the 75 had the same basic parts as the 85/90 could be a carb change a quick skim of the head will get you in the ball park.

If not if you post a wanted at www.lobmbc.com in the for sale section attention Pete Mantripp he should be able to source you a decent Yamaha 90 for resonable money.
