    2014 fzs issue wont go past 40

    have a 2014 fzs wont got past 40mph or 5000 rpms no check engine light and no limp mode light.

    wondering if anyone has had the same issues the ski only has 32 hours on it doesnt make sense. looking forward to your response.

    Hi,
    Check your supercharger,looks like you have no boost at all. The sc wheel should spin in one way only, only a hose to take off.
    Sorry for my bad english.

    More than likely one of two things.

    1. Ski is in Learner mode.

    2. Supercharger clutch failed. Remove intake boot from front of supercharger, reach in and spin the wheel by hand and see if it spins both ways. If it does, sprag clutch is gone.

    agreed with you on the first one , don't agree on the second one [ white boy ] have seen a clutch spin one way w/o any load and slip under a load [white boy ]

    It's still the most logical place to start, crazy mexican. And if the wheel spins both ways, the clutch is done, just like I said.

    I also didn't think the 2014 clutch was prone to failure like the old clutches were but anything is possible.

    check to be sure the reverse lever is all the way down! How many rpms can you turn now? usualy if the reverse lever switch is ativated you can only get 3500 rpms when sc clutch is bad or hose is off sc max rpms is usualy 5000-5500. Tommy Jordan
