    Thumbs up E-tech low boost wheel/ 2011 clutch combo

    Does anyone know for sure if you can use the E-tech low boost wheel with the 2011 clutch without destroying the clutch. Is it safe to run this set up? Any input is appreciated, Julio...

    i've only been running the e.t LB wheel with R3 for 4 hours, but I love it. Ski runs at 8560-8580rpm consistently with a true pitched skat 14/22. My stock 09 clutch has 112 hours on it now(60 hours with the B1 wheel). I pay close attention to throttle control to extend the clutch life. But, I know the day is coming eventually. I already have the spare 2009 clutch on hand.

    I wouldn't run a 2011 clutch, period! No matter what wheel or ECU i'm using. Until it's proven the newer 2011 clutches wont tear everything apart when they let go.

    Can you still get the older Clutch assemblies? Also I see you are running the R3/ET LB combo. Did you check your AF ratio at 8500rpm? I see you are using the Powershot? R&D told me I wouldn't need the PS or FPR with the R3/ET LB wheel. I'm currently running the R2/C1 combo but stepping up to the R3/ET wheel shortly. If anything I'd buy a FPR, but dont want to use the Powershot.

    Thanks!

    Can you still get the older Clutch assemblies? The entire assembly, most likely not. I bought mine last year from a local yamaha dealership that went out of business and were selling off their parts inventory. I paid the retail $456 for the assembly. You can still buy the old clutch itself.

    Also I see you are running the R3/ET LB combo. Did you check your AF ratio at 8500rpm? I see you are using the Powershot? R&D told me I wouldn't need the PS or FPR with the R3/ET LB wheel. I'm currently running the R2/C1 combo but stepping up to the R3/ET wheel shortly. If anything I'd buy a FPR, but dont want to use the Powershot. My next purchase will be an a/f gauge. So i currently have no idea of my a/f #'s. But, R&D claims the fuel map in the R3 is setup for 15-18# wheels. The E.T LB is putting out 14# at 8560rpm. So I hope it's enough fuel until i get the gauge. The powershot is in my ski, but hasn't been connected since the E.T wheel install.

    I went from a R3&B1 to the R3& E.T LB. With the 14/22 skat my rpm's were 8350 with the B1. I wanted to be between 8500-8600. At jim's suggestion that my rpm's would go up with more boost, I waited til after the E.T install to worry about the prop. What can I say, the guy knows his stuff. My rpm's went up 200, boost went up 3# and my top speed went up 3mph with nothing but the wheel change.

    Thanks man. I have a box stock skat 13/23 on there which I believe is a 13/22. I'm hoping with that prop and a 84mm nozzle ring, I should see at least 80 with the R3/ET LB wheel combo. That's pretty good speed for yours, nice job!

    Thanks again

    Roughly 3mph of my speed is coming from the R&D ride plate. But, man this plate is scary over 80. If i put a piece of coal up my ass during a speed run i could make a diamond. 80mph anytime was my goal. The extra few are a bonus, but i'm now willing to give up 1 or 2 for a safer, hooked up ride.
