    how to tell if its a SHO or SVHO

    A friend of mine is buying a 2013 FZR but the owner says he replaced the SHO engine with a SVHO. How can he tell if its true?

    Thanks
    Jay

    Should be a date on the engine label/sticker on the valve cover. The supercharger outlet is bigger for one thing, and the I/C has 2 outlets on it. Of course there is more to an SVHO than just the engine.

    if it is a late model engine that has the big cam chain just remove valve cover and see what size cam chain is in it.

    The engine has different pistons
    But most of the svho stuff is external
    Like bigger pump
    Bigger intercooler
    More boost
    Different injectors

    Is the SVHO engine more reliable than the SHO?

    He asked about the ENGINE, not the ski. The only differences are the pistons and cams. If it is 2016+ the crank is different. All other things can be swapped from the SHO.
