    Should I change my clutch?

    Hi guys... I got a 2010 FX SHO with 87hrs. The actual production date on the valve cover sticker is 08/09. My question is...should I change the clutch for the 2013 or just wait til it goes?. I don't know if this one shreds the teeth or what!?! I got the 2013 clutch already but don't have the tool to remove it now....so....should I replace it or just wait?
    Thanks in advance

    Isn't it the 2012 clutches that were prone to loosing teeth?

    If you already have the 2013 clutch, yes, install it.

    I wouldn't install it unless you have the one that shears the teeth.

    I disagree. the 08/09 clutches don't loose there teeth just the sprag bearing spins freely. Even if it went your not going to harm the ski just loose your boost. If it was me I'd wait save the wear and tear on the new one. Unless you just want to change it so you don't loose a day on the water I guess.

    I was thinking that...just wait til it goes and then replace it...hell, if I could get 200 hrs out of the stock one , why not!!!...also..is there a way of replacing it without the ridiculously overpriced riva tool?...

    all you need to get it off is a 5mm allen key and a 18mm socket for the bolt on the clutch. I made a tool using a angle grinder spanner to hold the clutch . the bolt is l/h thread.
