    Installed BOV today, and SC Clutch took a crap....

    Like the title says, I installed the RIVA blow-off valve kit, did everything like the instructions said...and not even 15 mins. of riding it went out...and this time Im positive it was the clutch; I was a full throttle and heard a whistle like sound and at the same time I instanly lost power. And it wont rev over 6k rpm.

    Im guessing it was just bad timing...but that makes me so pissed, right after I install a part to help aid the clutch from going, it goes...

    I call up the dealership I bought it from, basically he said I had to put everything back stock for it to be covered under warranty and he also added hes putting one together right now and it took 3 weeks to get the parts in...

    So whats the best solution here: Order aftermarket clutch and install it myself, order OEM clutch and install myself, or put everything back to stock and let the warranty cover it? Keep in mind I would rather spend a little bit of cash to have it running again... since summers almost gone and schools about to start back.

    Order it from Richard (way2fast) of HP marine. He had it in stock for like $127 and had it to me in 2 days.

    Rotax Racing heavy duty clutch $175 and do it yourself.

    That all depends on how bad it failed. If either/both clutch discs broke up, you may have to a complete tear down of the engine to clean it out. Plus replacement of the oil pumps. Lots of labor and a significant parts cost. I would let the dealer do it if it's under warranty.

    Thomas is right though!

    Maybe purchase the RR heavy duty clutch since the seadoo part is on back order and have your dealer install it. Once he gets the stock clutch in you will have a spare.

    Food for thought!

    This SC problem seems to be getting worse every week?

    Was this a stock ski it blew on?

    Now all the oil pump removal etc.

    Sounds like the probs I had when I bought by 98xpl new in 98......

    I hope sea-doo really steps up and bites the bullett and fixes this crap for all my RXP buds.

    stay away from the RR h/d clutch I know of NO one that has installed them that hasnt had problems ... just get a nice new fresh upgrade and run the BOV youll be fine for many more hrs .. Im going on 70 hrs on my clutch i dont know of anyone that can get past a few hrs with the RR clucthes they are a complete overkill for everyday riders ...just my 02 cents

    I'm with Nils, I have the RR H/D clutch and "NO" BOV and "NO" issues. I had the BOV at first, but, in speaking with people and expert tuners that I trust and rely on, they recommended removing it. I did, and as I said, no problems. Who builds the clutch and riding conditions contribute a lot to its performance and reliability.
