Kawi 260x Supercharger Question
Is it true the belt on the SC needs to be changed after every 20 hours? I picked up my 260 about 2 months ago. My girlfriend thought she'd go have a look at a SeaDoo she liked at the dealer. The salesman told her that the belt on the 260 stretches and needs to be changed every 20 hours. Was wondering if he was really just trying to unload a SeaDoo on her and convince her not to get another Kawi or if it was true. Thanks for the input.

Thanks man. I got nervous. And not to mention really pissed. Guess I will go back to that dealership and kick the salesman in the nards.

Sounds like par for the course for any salesman................Jack asses.................
Normally its @ 100 hours before the belt should be replaced..........
Then while they are there you can add a Extra Belt holder to store an extra belt so it will be easy to replace it when the time comes again.......
Oh and Welcome to the forum.......

Thanks for the welcome. Well good. That 100 hours sounds a whole lot better than every 20. It turns out, she did wind up buying the SeaDoo RXT 215 against my wishes. LOL.

Oh boy. Its bad huh? I was very much against the purchase. Guess she will learn the hard way when shes using the air horn to signal for help. LoL.

You can buy the $49 s/c tension gauge (Kawi P/N 57001-1697) from dealer and you can check/adjust the belt yourself instead of paying the stealership.

Anyways, most people are getting @100 hours out of a belt...............
