    Exclamation 2011 and up throttle body damper.

    if you have a 2011 or up FZR - FZS or a SHO and is hard starting, high idle, low on boost, low on rpm's and speed you might want to check the throttle body damper. I have had a few ski's with dampers coming apart with 17 plus pounds of boost. Very easy to check with ski running grab the throttle body and wiggle it side to side and if the idle goes real high or the engine dies out you have a bad throttle body damper. (I have not seen) any go bad on the 2008 to 2010 models. So if you have one that is bad i would replace it with the early model.

    The only bad part is the price of the older model throttle body dampers are over twice the price, I guess there is a reason why they are way more because they do not go bad. Here are some pics, Hope this info helps. Thank you, Jim

    Quite a price difference, $263 vs $532. If anyone finds theirs is bad, PM me - I have a spare '09 damper available.

    Damper sold already

    WTF! Who at Yamaha comes up with these prices? $263 is outrageous, but $532 for that part is completely insane.

    You are absolutely frickin right.

    And thank you Jim for sharing! Can see where this could save people a lot of time and heachaches trying to track this problem down. Dare I even ask how you figured this out? Trial and error? Lots of cussing?

    Jim please excuse my ignorance, but are the pictures shown of the old one or new one or is both? I have not dug that far into mine yet. And anything over $50 is ridiculous for those two parts.

    So basically it is 2 stainless plates, compression molded with rubber or cast with Urethane that did not bond well and separated.
    I wonder if a trip to Rhaas products would be the econimical repair trick for these? These guys recast all kinds of stuff out of urethane. I just ordered Motor Mounts for my Conversion, they are the old GP1200 style his charge to re-cast them was $30 ea. or I could buy them outright for $40 ea.
