    bov on stage 1 fzr

    What are your opinions of running a bov on a stage 1 fzr? I do a lot of offshore riding so I know there is a decent amount of wear on the clutch but is a bov really needed with a stage 1 kit? I would like to have peace of mind but if it is an overkill than it isn't worth it for me.

    If you do a lot of offshore riding then using a BOV is a good idea regardless of your level of modifications.

    Is the amount of stress on the clutch increased by stage 1 modifications?

    I would say no because boost and RPM remain unchanged.

    Riding consistently in rough water will put lots of stress on the clutch even on a stock ski.

    Cheaper than a clutch replacement...not to mention hoping the dealer gets the install done right the first time if you don't DIY. Ask Allstar about that one. Before installing the BOV, I was hearing lots of compressor surge with only stage 1 mods. I actually installed one 6 mo's before upgrading to an aftermarket SC since I ride offshore a lot. You'll be amazed how often you hear the pssshhh from the BOV while riding in the rough.

    160 total hrs on mine...about 70 since the BOV upgrade.

    I was just thinking, the only time I have heard of a clutch failing is because they were over-torqued when installing a new sc impeller so is it safe to assume that the clutch is actually strong enough for off shore riding because I haven't heard of a stock sc clutch/ wheel failing....

    also I would need that R&D multi-pressure port adapter if I got the bov unless I wanted to tap my manifold (which I dont)
