    FZR worx sponson question

    Will the WR554 sponsons work on a 2011 FZR? It's listed for 2013 FZR's, but I don't recall any difference in hull design or sponson mounting. It has more holes for adjustment and a thicker backing spacer? Better for closed course racing?

    I've had no luck getting my hands on a set of TBM's. So giving up, going to have togo another direction. I have read good reviews on the Worx sponsons.

    I heard back from Worx. This is the new Part# for '09-'13 and the website will be updated.

    Hope this helps.

    I have tbm on my fz and a mate of mine has worx on his both of which skis are set to most aggressive I found the word sponsons still slide through corners where as the tbm just about high side you when they grab a corner. Why not look at macc sponsons they are the same price as tbm and look the best I think.

    Does he have the newer redesigned Worx sponsons? Thicker back plate and an extra hole or two of adjustability down?

    I have talked to a couple racers who have swapped out their Macc sponsons. The reviews just weren't very favorable. Even here on the forum, the reviews are iffy.

    I'd prefer a set of TBM sponsons, but they will not make another production run. So I'm SOL!

    from what i know they are the ones with the two adjusting heights. But please don't let my opinion sway you my mate loves his worx sponsons and i think they are awesome for the price but I'm just so used to my sponsons, sort of like swapping cars it never feels quiet the same.
