washers or rebuild supercharger?
i have an 04 rxp & 05 rxt both with right at 100 hours. i ordered the washers last week and just recived them. but havent installed them. ive been reading on the forum a little and have read to mybee do the rebuild not just washers. rxt is for daugter and wake skating, rxp for rippin it up. what do u guys think? send the washers back and get rebuild or just do washers? thanks.

Send 'em back and get a full rebuild on both. It's mo' money, but cheap "insurance". It won't mean anything good if your new washers are intact if your bearings let go...

Labor to install: ~$85?
shipping both ways: ~$30
end result: back to where you started. didn't gain anything except increased longevity of the supercharger.
Buy a brand new XCharger:
42lbs injectors (needed for larger super charger): $200
end result: Brand new 0 hr supercharger with a lot more kick to it.
So at a bare minimum you have to spend the $425. So why not pony up the extra $275 and really wake that ski up.
Either which way... the washers alone is not enough.

Would you need a new prop as well? with the extra power from the x charger wouldnt he or myself hit rev limiter/ I am already turning 8140. Could you just do a repitch to save some money?

yep, you'll be all over the limiter with a stock prop and the x charger...even with a 14/19. where did you find a brand new x charger for 499? that's SUPER cheap.

Just do a complete rebuild on both of them..Youll have a peice of mind and they will now have the new 08 updated shaft and heavier duty spring washers and clutches...

I would get the full rebuild + Washers if I were you. I was in your shoes a couple months ago. I chose only to install the riva washers. But guess what, I threw a bearing and now my supercharger is toast and I have metal dust and fragments in my engine. My ski has 70 hours.
