    I replaced the timing chain in my 2015 fzs with the upgrade wider timing chain over a year ago...did not want to be stranded if it broke.

    If your chain breaks Yamaha will replace with new 2016 engine . If you change something and it still breaks it will be your problem

    That's funny that Yamaha did not want to admit they had a problem with these chains and now they come up with a $1500 upgrade kit? they should do a recall and install this kit into all the original owners with these skis for nothing. Me of course being one of them as I bought mine new in 2015 and have about 70 hrs now with mods getting it to 80.8 top speed. Don't know if my chain will ever break but this is really a sad thing they should have taken care of. I have owned Yamaha skis all my life over 30 yrs about every model and loved them all (Stiil own a 95 Raider 1100). Never any major issues I guess time will tell...

    The kit is a collection of the necessary oem parts to swap to the 16 and above chain. That being said Yamaha has been very good o those who have snapped their chains, even those out of warranty
