Default Yamaha f150 harmonic balancer squeal/howl

I know the 00-06 Yamaha f150 were famous for the balancer squeal/howl. Any one know if it is in the newer ones? I have a 2013 f150 and it made a sound the other day that sounds like every balancer video I have watched. Sound went away after I shut motor down but it was there when I came off step to stop and brought motor to idol is was defiantly there and increased when rpm increased in neutral. Let motor sit for 15min fired er up ran like nothing had happened all the way to trailer. I know they have changed the gear material just wondering if anyone knows if the newer f150s are having issues like the old ones. Motor is conveniently just off warranty of course.

My old '07 had the issue. I can't remember what rev the new unit was but it seems this is an issue that Yamaha just hasn't quite nailed down.

I will say I replaced mine myself with no troubles. With basic wrenching abilities this was an easy fix. Some well documented replacement posts that pretty much walk you through each step.

Mine had just started making the sound and I changed it immediately, cheap part compared to losing the power head.

So it looks like the 06 I just bought needs to have the balancer replaced. Dealer wants $450 for the part ~ anyone know where I can get it for a better price?

thank you

I did the install myself using Sims instructions. If you are slightly mechanically savvy this is easy install
