Goodbye 2 stroke hello 4 stroke
I can't bloody wait, I'm going to pick up my first four stroke this weekend it's a fzr 09 with 52 hours on it. It has a full service history and a few mods, I got for a bargain price as well.
I will post pics as soon as I get it and get the gopro mounts on for videos, this summer is going to awesome.

You won't regret dumping the 2 stroke.
We have had excellent results with the 2009 models.
Just make sure you swap out the intake grate if it's stock; to avoid getting bucked.

Yes it's stock but myself can't leave things alone so no doubt I'll change it soon, is the bucking bad? When does this happen??

Others say they have never had it happen.
Your options are as follows...
1. You could read all the details in this 555 page thread:
2. Or you could trust us, and order the R&D Aquavein intake grate from Jerry's store and be done with it.

Right I think you lot are the only people who will understand my pain.........
so took the boat at a cost of nearly £500 to the uk to collect the ski got to the boat yard it was kept at only to be told it had already been sold!! I'd spoken to the owner weeks before and the deal was done but the owner hadn't told the boat yard! The boat yard had been trying to get hold of the owner to tell it had been sold a week before I got there. Worse thing was the skis owners brother went to take it out before I got there and ov was told it was sold, so when I called the guy and texted him to meet up before collecting the ski no answer he didn't bother to call me to say sorry there has been a cross wire with the boat yard and not to waste my time getting on the ferry, so I'm out of pocket and still no ski!! To be fair the bloke from the yard offered me a ultra 300 for the cash I had to buy the fzr but I'm a yam guy so said no.
angry and diserpointed doesn't cover how I feel.
if anyone from them the uk has a fzr 09 for sale I'm looking for one again
