Stage 3 FZR Problems
This FZR has a Riva Stage 3 with an R3 (Minus VIPEC) and Riva Waterbox and it flys (85+ GPS)
I have 2 issues that I have learnt to live with for the past 50 hours.
1) GIO - the oil level rises on the stick about 1 mm for every tank of gas. AFRs are 11 - 11.5 according to my LC-1
2) Vibration that comes on between 3000-4500 RPM when acclerating slowly or uhooking in this range. 5000RPM - 8300RPM is as smooth as silk.
I have changed the BOV, E1 wheel, Prop, SC Clutch (New Version) and even swapped SC with friend that runs a C5 drop-in wheel with no luck. (The C5 ran smooth on his FZS but vibrated slightly on mine)
I am confused as to how this ski hauls ass (50hours) and has these issues. I am tired of changing the oil every 5 tanks.
I believe the vibration is boost related as the stock wheel does not vibrate, almost like I need 2 BOVs. Riva says my problem is internal (Harmonic) but I am not convinced.

Silly question but have you checked your prop and output shaft etc...

on the GIO issue, you are using riva's cooling kit? and is your T-stat in?

Using Riva Cooling Kit with the thermostat in, also have a ball valve with the oil filter reading approx 195F (Infrared Thermometer) after some long WOT runs. Our water temp stays between 83-87F year round.

Antiguan, stop whining. With all that beautiful water and those bikinis running around you there, I really don't feel too sorry for you having to change your dang oil every 5 tanks.

Do the E1/HKS bov equiped fzrs have any vibration when the bov releases boost?
We don't have any other set-ups like mine to compare.
