    Yamaha - Make a Recommendation

    Been a long time Sea Doo rider but am seriously considering switching to a Yamaha this season. Today I stopped by a local dealer and he had a couple left overs that he showed me. One was a 2010 FZR for 10K even, the other a 2011 VXR at 10,500. I've read some posts indicating issues of "bucking" on the FZR. I would appreciate any input from those that might have and/or been on these machines.

    supercharged or not is all you need to ask your self !!!!!!!!!!! the VXR is a fun ski and so is the FZR, i think if i had to do it again, i would shoot for the FZ, but i really love my VXS cause it does go well (70) which is damn good for a N/A powered ski !!!!!

    if i were you i would buy the fzr, truest me you are going to love it. I think it look better than the vxr just my opinion, and for the bucking problem just put a R&D Intake Grate with the seal pump kit and problem solve

    Thanks for the replies. Seems the fzr seems to be getting the nod of approval. Does anyone have a ballpark estimate on the price of the R&D Intake Grate installed at the dealer?

    Get the FZR. Last May I bought an 09 Leftover for just under 10 out the door with a LR trailer. Like the others have said, just do the R&D Grate with the pump seal kit and you are good to go. It's as easy as taking out 4 bolts, removing the stock grate, installing a couple pieces of rubber (seal kit), adding a little 4200 sealer, putting the R&D grate in, and then re-installing the 4 bolts with a little thread-locker torqued to spec. 15 minute job taking your time. Don't pay anyone to do it.
    Now go get it before its gone!!!! LOL
