2012 or 2013 Yamaha FZS?
Hello I'm new to the forum and need some advice. I currently own a 1999 Kawasaki stx 900 and love it, but am looking to upgrade. I have done a lot of research and have come to the conclusion that the FZS is the best fit.
i have been in talks with a lady at a dealer. She said she had one 2012 FZS left and it would be $13,612 including the trailer, freight, and prep. Now I have read and the lady at the dealer told me that there is no difference between the 2012 and 2013 FZS. But on this forum I saw there was problems with the 2012 supercharger clutch. That concerns me. I'm also not to thrilled with the yellow color on the 2012. They did not have any green ones left.
The dealer told me it would be an extra $1000 for a 2013 one. Should I spend it to avoid the clutch problems and to get the yellow 2013 one which I really like or no?
I am going to my areas boat show next weekend to look at and purchase it. The lady from the dealer is gonna be there and i need to put a deposit down on It so i can avoid it selling out. So I really need to decide soon. Any help would be great. Thanks!

Depending on what the VIN no. of the 2012 ski is it may have the newest version clutch as well. There are some posts on here talking about it.

They are going to replace the 2012 clutch with a newer one if it blows up anyway. Could just put the diff in an extended warranty.

If you really like the yellow one I say just go for the 2013. Otherwise you will look at that 2012 and really wish you went for the yellow one. I would buy the extended warranty on any of the supercharged models.

Given the info you provided I would go with the 2013. If you take advantage of their financing and have tier 1 credit it's only about $30 more a month and you will be happier in the long run. Assuming this something you're going to hold onto for a few years.
