SuperCharger now making a new noise....whats this sound like?
My 2012 FZR is now making a new noise.... it just hit the 50 hour mark. I just completed the 50 hour maint. and its still there... It sat in the garage for about 3 weeks. I took it out on the water and the noise goes away as soon as I get past 2000 RPMS. The ski does 73Mph on my GPS still and doesn't feel any different performance wise just don't want to keep riding it if it's a problem and needs to be checked out.
The Ski has a Custom intake, R&D grate, R&D high flow exhaust, Ribbon delete, and a R3.
It sounds like it coming from the supercharger as best as I can tell. I have another 2012 FZS with around the same hours and it's way quieter than this one at idle.
What do you think?

Hi Joe. I listened to your video multiple times and I can definitely hear what you are referring to. Sounds like a Bearing to me, but I can't tell where. I agree, I would not ride it either until that noise is diagnosed and corrected. JB

That's sort of what I was thought too... looks like time to put my stock ECU back in and off to the dealer. THANKS John.

That sounds like normal ware on the supercharger clutch. It will need to be replaced once it starts growling when you turn the engine off, Julio...

its a bad clutch. May be a while before it goes completly out. If u pull the clutch apart, the sprag will probly fall apart when u do. Had one sound the same way ,sounded like a bearing. glad it was just the clutch.

Well she is now with my local dealer.....Even the dealer said " Ya that's not right, but we will get it taken care of." Hopefully it gets sorted out! THANKS Rocketman.

Hit it right on the head here!!! Just got the ski back from the dealer after a month in the shop. NEW 2013 clutch and they replaced all my gaskets too. 20 hours of labor at god knows what price plus parts all covered under warranty. she's back in action! Probabaly won't put my R3 back on her....
