    Buying 2015 fx svho questions? Help

    So thinking on getting a red 2015 fx svho cruiser. There is a really good deal on one locally with only 25hrs. The timing chain issue freaks me out. Should I pass and just get a 2016? The guy said the warranty is good through May 2021. Can you extend the warranty after that? Or probably best to just get a 16. Any thoughts are appreciated.

    It freaks me out too. When I moved into my neighborhood 4+ yrs ago I met my neighbor across the street and I was impressed when he told me that he had an FZR. When he told me that it was a 2014, I'm sure he saw the look on my face. I had just met him and I didn't say a word about the timing chain but I was concerned for him.

    Sure enough, about 2 yrs ago he broke the timing chain. It was out of warranty but "fixed under warranty." IIRC, I even posted a thread here on GH along with a picture. I'm pretty sure that most people with a 2014-2015 SVHO are just fine but those years still make me very nervous.

    I was shopping this winter for svho to move up from my SHO

    and there was 3 people that I spoke with that were denied warnety with 2014 nd 2015 timing chain problems.. so its not 100% it will be fixed.

    I was only shopping 2016 FZ skis for that reason. and I wanted black hull white top
