100hr s/c rebuild
So the 100 hour mark has come and my dealer told me i needed to get the s/c rebuild. Is it worth getting it rebuilt for the $750 its going to cost me and if i dont will i still be able to sell it, which iam looking at shortly.

If you are selling it right away, then you can always let the next owner take care of it. If you are going to continue using it, then you need to take care of it.
Two questions to consider;
1. Are you still using the OEM ceramic clutch washers?
2. Is the unit still under extended warranty?
If I am not mistaken you are not REQUIRED to rebuild your SC on the 07 models; however I think they changed the rules on 2008 models so that you are required to do it every 100 hours in order to preserve your warranty. Check and see what your owner's manual says about this and your warranty.
Now, having said that, the SC is considered a high wear item and your dealer is correctly telling you to change it in order to avoid potential disaster if your clutches or your bearings let go and you trash your engine. Again, did you replace the original ceramic washers yet? If not, then you definitely need to replace those with Riva washers before you start the ski again, because they are a ticking time bomb.
The other issue is the cost; that is WAY too high for a SC rebuild in my opinion. Jerry can do this for you and save you a ton of money. See these links for more info:

I sell the rebuild kits for $298 and charge $75 labor for the rebuild. See the supercharger rebuild link to your left.
I can also sell you a complete brand new supercharger for $698
