    FZS 2009 Questions

    First i would like to say thanks for taking the time to read/reply to my post.
    I have a 2009 fzs wich is stock with 28hrs
    I have on order r&d aquavein intake grate for safety,(thanks to all the posters on this topic)
    I have contacted australian dealers and they recommend having the s/c clutch changed to the current one.Do you people recommend this?
    Do the teeth break on the 2009 clutches or does the clutch part just fail?
    Will a bov help in keeping the clutch from failing?I was looking at the r&d tial bov would this be overkill?
    Thanks for your help with this.

    I would say install the BOV and wait untill there is a reason to change the clutch. If you havn't done much in mods yet, especially a big boost wheel, there is a good chance the clutch could last you for many hours.

    I have a 2009 with 70hrs on it, With only 10hrs on it i fitted a BOV from Gary Watson, you will need to remove your intake manifold to drill out for BOV line, do the ribbon removal while you have it off. Had no trouble with my BOV from Gary but it sounds like a squeeky toy every time it goes off, no big deal though.

    2009 clutches do NOT brake the teeth off, The sprag bearing is the weak part of that clutch not the teeth.

    No the 2009 sc clutch dont break any teeth, the 2011 sc clutch model is the one that breaks the teeth, i have a friend that has a 2009 fzr all stock with 188 hr and no problem at all, i think the 2009 sc clutch system is the best model that yamaha ever made

    No he is all stock, but i think is better to put a bov, it sound nice and it would protect the clutch too
