    What most are doing now is upgrading to the newer sprag clutch from the 2011 and up models and then either going with the new RIVA/HKS dampner which is on the market and shipping now or the R&D Superclutch which is projected to be released later this month. Both units claim to help reduce shock loads to the clutch which in turn is supposed to help with longevity. Both units are new and it may be awhile before you get real world results from the everyday user as far as which one works better. Each unit has a different approach as to how it is desiigned to operate. The RIVA unit uses a rubber type dampening setup where as the R&D utilizes pressure discs and is designed to act like a slipper clutch. It will be interesting to see how they both work but for now, I guess it is up to you to decide which system makes the most sense to you as far as which one to purchase if you so decide to give one or the other a whirl. You can also wait until you get some solid feedback on each system and make your decision then but in all honesty, it will probably be awhile before you get gather some good info from the general public.

    Sorry to hear that!

    Right now your best options are the 2011 clutch

    Along with the Riva super dampener
    http://www.4-tecperformance.com/inde...oducts_id=1844

    Both are in stock and ready to ship.

    Hi Razzie i live way down south on the Isle of Wight and my motor has done 42 hours but is at around 16 psi boost which will shorten the life of the clutch considerably ,but my local jetski shop have seen failures at 25 hours but warranty of course.depends how heavy your trigger finger is?

    Thanks washo6o4
