Thread: FX SVHO

  1. #1

    FX SVHO

    I Bought a 2014 FX SVHO the 1st 10 hours of use I wooped every ski I came across.

    After the 10 hour maintenance I noticed some power loss, so I called my dealer and they replaced the spark plugs (with no difference). Last Friday I took my son out for a joy ride an had to idle the ski back over 8 miles (not fun). The dealer just called me and the throttle body has a gasket/seal jammed in it from the intercooler.

    Just wondering if anyone else has had this problem or is this an isolated incident

    Yes it happened to someone here before I believe is a spacer that is located inside the intercooler..

    There is so much bullshit going on with this new svho it's ridiculous!! I am one of the biggest Yamaha fans out there and i can't believe they put out such great product with such shit quality control. For the first time EVER I'm not going to be recommending the new Yamaha to friends!! They have one last shot with the 2015 to step up there game or I'm done with anything newer then 2013. Wtf Yamaha way to embarrass your reputation!! Did you sell to China to make more profits? What's funny is even with all this horrible quality control, you still won't catch me on a seedont or kawasucki!!!!

    I'm wondering of that rubber divider is flexing under the additional pressure from boost on the inlet side of the intercooler and popping out if the slots that hold it. Might need to be glued and/or have some kind if stiffener put on it.

    Oh well, more fun with the spanners...
