    Depends on your modifications and how you ride. It seems stock over 100 and modded anywhere from 5-100. Hard to say

    What happens between 30 and 50 hours???

    Mine went something like 46 hours.

    But I rode it like I stole it for each of those 46 hours.

    Just a small amount of speculation, but hey Apple fans can do it so I will to

    • Owners get more familiar and comfortable with riding and become more agressive in speed and waves.
    • Performance parts are added.
    • Luck changes and Murphy butts in

    What I cannot get out of my head is I don't recall hearing of one clutch issue in 2008 or for that matter most of 2009. Then we started hearing of issues even on some stock boats. Unless something else pops up that is proven, myself I will probably be using a Rotax solution by EOY 2011.

    I think it is worth noting that 50hrs plus could mean that it has yet to break, not that it did break at 50hrs plus.

    There was some speculation at some point that Yamaha could have been using different types of aluminum for the clutch between 2008-2010. For example, in 2008 they may have been getting the aluminum from the USA and in 2010 they got their aluminum from China.

    Pure speculation though.

    65hours (20 stock, 45 stage1) no issues.
