    FX SHO Supercharger Clutch Broken

    My 2011 FX SHO Cruiser supercharger clutch broken last year and was struggling to get past 40 mph. Me and my dad replaced it and fixed the issue and the ski was back up to hitting 65+ mph. This was at around 35 hours and we just got 49 and it seems to have happened again. We can’t hear hear the whistling of the supercharger and half the acceleration and power is lost just like the previous time.

    is this a common occurrence to have to fix broken clutches this often on the SHO’s/SVHO’s? If so I will probably end up selling this one and buying a HO to avoid any future issues with these sensitive supercharger. Really disappointed with Yamahas reliability on this one and was expecting better.

    anyone else have similar issues? Or maybe possible fixes that will last longer?

    thanks

    Clutch life is mostly dependent on how you ride it. I’m at 175 hours on my original clutch and I know several people well over 200 hours without a clutch failure

    Yeah, ever since we fixed the last clutch, we avoided jumping the jetski out of the water at all and have been very conservative with our acceleration/deceleration so I’m not sure what would’ve caused it this time ??
