    Caribbean issues!

    Hello gents I have been mia for the past few years and forgot my old log in. Anyways I moved from NY to Aruba 2 months ago with my jeep and FZR with 68hrs on it. I have Riva performance power filter kit ,Riva intake manifold kit, R&D intercooler CFM kit, and a R&D racing billet supercharger shaft kit. I have ridden almost everyday since my commute to work is actually on the fzr to a sailboat I work on!
    The other day we had some nice 12 foot waves that I had to go jump which was a blast! I had no issues there but on my way back in a 2 ft chop (there is always waves here!) my machine would not rev past 5200rpms. I took the supercharger off assuming clutch issue since they seem to go and sure enough the clutch spins both ways I made it to 88 hrs but now need to get to work so i can get back out there!

    My question for you guys is what else is weak on the fzr? I want to be able to ride to Venezuela and back with out getting stuck out there. Its a 20 mile ride one way with 4ft seas on a calm day and I ride full speed through it!

    2013 clutch and a dampner gear from Riva?, upgrade your SC shaft brush bearings to ET ones or Riva ones.

    Would you say a Blow Off kit should be installed as well with the constant air time?

    yes it will help,but your throttle control will go a long way......let off when pump gets out of water or you get air borne

    Letting off is the reason for my clutch wear I want to gain more speed but really dont understand the ECU mods. I have a C3 wheel but not installed yet. I was thinking a 2013 riva clutch, R&D surge protection kit and a R&D powershot.
