    2009 fzs rpm and top speed problem,,, Im assuming its the clutch

    Took the wifes 09 fzs out to warm the oil up before winterizing it today, ski has 276 hrs on it, I haven't ridden the ski in quite some time, maybe 2 or 3 years, it revved to exatly 6,000 and about 45 - 50 mph, engine was smooth and sounded just fine. She doesn't ride it hard at all, and hurt her shoulder last spring, so shes been taking it easy all summer... have no idea when the charger might have blown. I will check to see if it spins both directions and that should be the tell tale sign ????

    can someone please point me in the right direction for a complete rebuild kit with everything i need for her 09 ?

    Any Yamaha mechanics in the tri-state area want to make a few bucks on the side and change it for me ??? I can bring the ski to you.. Thanks for any help, much appreciated.

    Hmm should be hitting 7500-7800 rpm and 65 mph plus, but 6500 rpm sounds high for a blown clutch.... spins Botha ways is one way to check clutch but not only one, to replace need a new clutch and oil pump gasket plus oil, might be worth checking a few other points too, TPS, plugs etc

    Start it and if it doesn’t have any clutch chatter it’s the clutch
