    Never had an SVHO motor before. Just the TR1 and the 1.8.

    If you leave the engine stock you should not have any problems with it.....no more maintenance than the 1.8 na.

    However the clutch can actually fail at anytime.....just try NOT to run wide open in choppy waters and let off the throttle all the way.
    When you back off the throttle just to about 80% then back off all the way....you will be doing yourself a favor....clutch will last much longer

    Thanks. What’s the issue?

    What about when getting airborne?

    Add a BOV to help those times.

    Just be aware of how you ride the SVHO.....let off part throttle before full throttle....

    Also do your best to not over-rev the motor on the trailer....
    That can cause problems.....

    Just good advice from my dealer master tech when I picked it up.

    Hi mate, definitely put a BOV on, it'll exhaust the boost when you button off relieving clutch and hose pressure.
    Basically, if you are leaving the water and staying hard up it, when you land the water force that enters the prop is brutal, these forces are transferred through the driveline then the engine and s/c clutch.
    dont get me wrong, it ain't great for any ski. But the extra grunt you'll have will magnify it.
    BECAUSE THERE AINT NO REPLACEMENT FOR DISPLACEMENT
    Hurricane1000 was bang on though, throttle regulation is the key.
    enjoy it, all the best

    I did all of the above and my svho clutch lasted 250 hrs- slow down slowly and put it in reverse when on a trailer. Also DO NOT put anything less than 91/93 fuel

    Basixally if you are jumping off a wave let off the throttle while you are in the air.

    If if you are riding in really rough water where the pump comes unhooked it’s not a good idea to keep it pegged full throttle. The blow off valve reduces the shocks to the clutch in these situations.

    Thanks for the all the help guys! I have generally avoided things with chargers on them due to the loss of reliability. Guess I didn’t follow my own rules this time

    This machine will be fresh water only and on a river. Chop wise....not as bad as many other locations. I put only about 20 hours a season on my water craft. Because of our schedule this summer though, it will get used more than normal but just the first year. It will not be modified in any way to raise top end or rpms. It will stay all stock.

    I sold a machine a while back....was 14 years old and had 170 hours on it.

    If Clutch should break....what is typical cost for repair?
