    FZR 2009 - 185 hours clutch disassembly... PICS - must see

    Hi boys...
    last winter I decided to pump up my FZR.
    so first of all, I upgraded clutch to 2013, + riva dumpener + riva shaft gen III.

    2009 clutch was perfect working but ski had 185 hours... and a lot of wave rider.

    today, only for curiosity I disassembled my old clutch...
    SUPRISE...
    see the photos....

    so this is similar to Sea doo SC gear failure but it`s better as you did not feel anything and it did not go into the engine. Does it have a stop so those parts don't enter the engine or how does it work ?

    How is that even possible that you were still at full performance with a clutch like that?

    Mine was the same way, looks like heavy wear on the sprags and none on the races. I think it is because the races have a ton of surface area, and the sprags just have that little rounded end that contacts the races. Could also be the sprags are softer, or not heat treated as much. The snap rings are what hold all the parts inside even though the retainer cage is broken.

    This was an older sc clutch. The 2013+ clutches are much better.
