Just picked up my ZR 9000 with turbo, my buddy said if I turn it up to 4 on the turbo I'll more than likely blow the engine sooner,
any truth to that?

Thanks and understand, but still wondering what the life expectancy is and what others have experienced with this model?

Not sure where that section is, as I'm a newbe, and and even if I wasn't not sure I would be posting in the right place. But I guess that's why I like riding Cats braaap, braaaap... Get some, "OTG" On The GasTM!!! Sorry just wanting some snow.

I did move the thread now.
Honestly, I hadn't moved it earlier because the question is a sort of age old question. It applies to pretty much everything.

I don't know guess will have to wait and see. Really trying to enjoy the fall but all I can think about is snow, colder temperatures and getting on the gas

Stock 2017 & newer ZR9000 Turbo has 24/50 gearing. At recommended max engine RPM (8750-8800) the Cat gearing chart shows the sled will go 113.
If left stock, the Yamaha-designed and manufactured engine (998 cc 3-cylinder w turbo) are bullet-proof. In the 5 years this engine has been out, there have been very very few reports of engine failures.
Once a tune is installed, of course there is going to be more problems due to higher output and higher stress on internal parts. But even with a tune, they are very reliable. Big tip - NEVER NEVER turn the engine backwards!!
