2011 fzr supercharger wheel has play
my 2011 fzr is down 3-4 mph i just put a new prop and wear ring in after having something stuck pretty bad and im still down on speed.im checking over everything all hoses and clamps are on good so cant be a boost leak i noticed the supercharger wheel spins free the one way and theres about a quarter inch of play going the other way where i would think it should be tight is this normal or maybe a sign the clutch is starting to go?

If the wheel turns both ways at all your clutch is getting ready to pop.
It should not move at all in one direction.
Did you notice a rpm drop.
The first time my clutch went out i noticed that on the trailer it did not seem to rev up as fast.
Then on next time i had it on the water it went out about 80 miles into the endurance race i was in.

Not sure if you're running one of the SCs that drops teeth when it fails, but by catching it early you may have saved yourself an engine pull.
Sounds to me like it's on the way out - that's too much play. If it were me I'd park it and leave until I had time to remove it for a visual inspection.

Jim, it spins freely clockwise and when u go back counterclockwise it clicks and turns about a quarter inch or less till it locks
