    2008-2009 Owners - Did your OEM superchargers fail within the first 100 hours?

    I'm looking for input from owners of 2008-2009 supercharged SeaDoo's for this one. Basically any SC'ed ski that came with the OEM metal washers. I want to see how many failures we had on this forum in the first 100 hours of use on them.

    Please don't vote if your ski came with the ceramic washers or if you had a problem with an aftermarket washer. I'm interested to see the reliability rate of the stock superchargers that came with OEM metal washers. It doesn't have to just be the washers, it could be any part of the supercharger that failed.

    Also, if you are under 100 hours and have not had any problems with the OEM metal waters, plus don't vote until you hit 100 hours. But I would like to hear from you in a post if interested. For example:

    I've been running the OEM metal washers for 22 hours with no problems.

    Jarret, may want to add bearings into this as well. Seems I have heard of more X ski bearings failures than other 4-tecs.

    I changed my 08RXPX @ 90 something hours.Clutch was perfect. Slip was still around 80-90 inlbs if I remember correctly. Made the if it aint broke dont fix it alarm go off but the way my luck runs it would have crapped out while we were 1000 miles from home on vacation.

    The stock metal washers fail because people don't maintain the slip on them after break-in so they slip and get really hot. If you maintain the slip on them you won't have any issues.

    jarrett I didnt vote cause i only have 18hrs on my 215hp but I only seem to ride chop 1-2ft with alot of WOT runs. I havent slip checked it but it seems to be running good. At some point i will buy ALL the tool to rebuild the charger and keep and extra rebuild kit in the tool box. I also plan to change the oil every 25hrs and will inspect and slip check the charger at the same time.

    09 X charger, Well Jarret i dont have a 08 or 09 ski but i do have a brand new 09 X charger on my 07 RXT which has less then 25 hours on it and is on its way to Jerry for new washers cause the slip is so low it wont make boost without slipping, this is not a good thing cause thats how washers break from being to hot and getting brittle.
