    fzr 14hrs crankcase blown off

    i got my brand new fzr of the dealer and i only rode 14 hrs with it. i was riding almost half throttle and was a little choppy. once i gave a full throttle on choppy water the engine blown off and the weather temp was about 95 degree Fahrenheit

    i checked out what was going on with the engine and it was all covered with oil and smoke and it wasnt cranking.

    once i came back home i checking out the ski and i found pieces of metal underneath the engine which seems to me that it blew the crankcase

    my mods were

    riva thru hull exhaust
    intake ring
    vx ride plate
    r&d intagrate
    riva filter

    and everything else was stock

    dose this means it would void my warranty.. my ski is only one month old

    have any one had this situation before with a low hour ski use ??? the weather was

    I have no idea what the dealer situation there is.


    Who installed the parts?

    Regardless, if none of this caused the issue then warranty SHOULD cover it.

    First glance, I would say none of those parts should cause an issue unless a serious (and obvious) error was made at some point during installation.

    Pictures of the metal parts found might help.

    Most of those things could be easily reversed. The thru hull exhaust would be hard to hide, but you never know, they might not notice it. I don't believe that any of those things would effect what you are speaking of. I would at least take it to them to see what happens.

    if it is an engine part failure it should be cover under the warranty with no questions ask unless you have done some mods to the engine which in this case it does not apply or the part failure was related to something else such as getting water in your intake system or any other situation similar to this. The sad thing is that you are going to be without a ski for some time now in summer time....

    I would definitely put the ski back to stock, or at least the best you can. They will try to say that your parts messed up the Air/Fuel mixture causing this or anything so they dont have to pay for it. Put all your stock parts back on that you can and play dumb. Goodluck. Looking forward to seeing those pics.
