Riva Dampener Failure
Recently when riding my 2012 sho i lost boost, so dropped off to dealer thinking the clutch had rolled over. However check the washers out on the Riva dampener as they broke away one got caught in the magneto / flywheel.
Has anyone seen a dampener fail due to washers ? the teeth are perfect and its only done 35 hours now.
Have contacted Riva awaiting there response.

I notice you have 2012 sho. Is this a early 2012 model. You do know that they changed the sprage clutch and idler gear teeth # NUMBERS in mid 2012. The old dampner gear will not work on the mid 2012-2013. Just thought you might need to know this info.Oldman

No doubt every one has seen the new 2013 ligtened gear and new clutch Yamaha have released. Thats the way I will be going.
